Savant Head Positioning

The Savant Headrest™ is a new and unique support for the head.  It is cool, light-weight and can easily be shaped by hand. The gel pads give soft, customized head support. A perfect fit!
It provides head support at three levels on the head to control lateral flexion and rotation.  A headband can be used for anterior head support.

  • Quick release clamps hold the headband in place.

  • Mid-Lateral Pads are shaped for comfort behind the ears
  • Sub-Occipital Pads form extra support below the mandible.
  • The pads are filled with a soft silicone gel for comfort.

  • optional use of headband (included) for additional anterior support
