Apex Headrest Pads

Apex Headrest Pads

As seen at the 2019 National Seating & Mobility Symposium: Symmetric Designs’ new Apex headrest pads use dual-layer foam and an alloy shell (with adjustable contour) to provide both comfort and support in a zipper-free design. The shell is embedded into the foam for extra “edge” protection; the foam is also easily replaceable. The amazingly lightweight Apex comes with a removable Neoprene or Startex cover, in oval or winged shapes and in multiple colors. The winged shape is reversible, so the wings can be at the top or bottom of the headrest. The winged shape is available in two sizes; the oval shape is available in four sizes.

Shoulder Harness Strap Guides

Shoulder Harness Strap Guides

As seen at the 2019 International Seating Symposium: Place and keep chest and shoulder harnesses exactly where you want them. Bodypoint’s new Shoulder Harness Strap Guides provide a customized fit, even on low or contoured backrests. Elevate the mounting position of top straps to achieve the ideal angle for more even pressure distribution over the shoulder. The guides feature super-strong spring steel that absorbs shock to prevent damage to the back; integrated holes allow easy harness attachment, no extra drilling needed. Long mounting slots accommodate a range of backrests and offer greater adjustability. Optional Mounting Adapters (lower photo) enable the use of existing headrest holes to minimize the need for drilling and to make fine-tuning the fit easy and convenient. Strap guides and Mounting Adapters are each available in two sizes.
