HEADALOFT improves the lives of people who lack head control.
Supporting the head and aligning the body centralizes the head in an upright position, which helps relieve aches and pains, and enhances self-esteem.
Lifting the head up opens the airways letting in more oxygen.
Keeping the head elevated reduces choking hazards for both solids and liquids while ensuring an easier feeding experience for caregivers and smoother swallowing for the user.
Better eye contact heightens social engagement while open airways make talking easier.
Users gain the ability to practice eye-gaze control which allows for expanded learning opportunities and greater fulfillment potential.
Padded, breathable, and washable all-day comfort. With its unique occipital support add-on, the neck is supported, greatly reducing the level of stress on the neck as well as aches and pains.
Whether in a wheelchair, stroller, or a car seat, comfortable head support improves quality of sleep and reduces aches and pains.
Wheelchair users whose heads are continuously falling (whether back, front or to the side) can say goodbye to neck pressure sores.
TV, computer, books, video games, concerts, plays, social interactions, and more are all now more accessible.
