Symmetric Designs has added a new cover to its Savant line of head positioning and support.

Savant with Carbon Cover

The new Carbon Cover uses a durable, low-shear material to reduce friction that results from head movement.

The Carbon Cover was also made with infection control in mind: It can be easily wiped with a cleaning solution or disinfectant to keep the cover clean.

The popular Savant line provides posterior and anterior (via a low-profile headband) support for wheelchair users who require head positioning. High-lateral pads provide effective lateral flexion control, while mid-lateral pads are shaped to provide a comfortable fit behind the user’s ears. Sub-occipital pads provide extra support below the occiput, and the pads are filled with a soft silicone gel for a comfortable fit.

The Savant headrest, which attaches via standard three-point hardware, is easy to fit and can be shaped by hand. The pads are also easily reshaped by hand.
