How to select Danmar Head Supports?
Our products are designed to enrich the lives of their users, therefore contributing to the optimization of the individual's full potential in educational, social, and recreational settings. They can be used during classroom activities, while eating, and when used properly, in transportation. Proper selection of a head support requires that an onsite, professional evaluation take place, including the following factors:
- Breathing should be improved or maintained at the present level.
- Swallowing/drainage should be improved or maintained at the present level.
- Field of vision/eye contact should be improved or maintained at the present level.
- Head contact areas - Head supports maintain the head in a mid-line position. A portion of the neck/head area that contacts the support is considered the "base area." Determining that base area helps provide support and maximum comfort. Improper base area selection can impede breathing, swallowing, blood flow, and could possibly cause jaw discomfort.
- Body Positioning - Head support must only be used in conjunction with proper trunk support, if trunk support is needed.
- Head control should be evaluated from little or no head control to forward, rear or side-thrusting, and/or random movements.
