The 6810 Hensinger Head Support is a wrap around collar designed to support the head by using base support areas at the occiput and jaw line. Manufacturer recommends this support be used in conjunction with chest support to help maintain mid-line head positioning. (Proper head positioning should result in improved breathing, swallowing, and simplified feeding; and may also be conducive to more social interaction and awareness during classroom activities.) The support fastens with a one-snap release buckle. A tether strap attaches to the collar. The covers are replaceable socks. MOUNTING: The support is mounted on a back plate (4 x 12 inches) with two attached straps that buckle around the back of the seating unit ($105 to $135). The supports are also available mounted on aluminum bar formed to fit feeder seats, or unmounted for cases where specialists want to incorporate the unit within their own individualized mounting systems ($80 to $110). DIMENSIONS: Inner circumference of the supports come in 10 inches (Extra small), 12 inches (Small), 14 inches (Medium), or 16 inches (Large). COLOR: Covers come in blue or black. Vinyl covered foam is casa tan.
