Hensinger Head Support Made To Measure

The Hensinger Head Support is a soft foam wraparound collar designed for individuals who struggle with head control. This support aids in maintaining the head and neck in a centred position by providing support under the jawline and upper chest.

Correct head positioning can enhance breathing, swallowing, and make feeding easier. It also contributes to improved social engagement and attentiveness in educational settings. The Hensinger head support collar can help enhance the safety of the head and neck positioning during transfers and while traveling in a vehicle.

The Hensinger features a durable yet flexible reinforcement material around the outside of the vinyl covered foam support. Each collar includes a soft cover and a quick-release buckle for convenient fitting and removal.

To ensure effectiveness and safety, the Hensinger Head Support must be used with a chest/trunk support and proper pelvic positioning.

The Hensinger Head Support collar can be made-to-measure to fit individuals whose body dimensions or specific requirements are not accommodated by the standard ready-to-wear sizes. To request a custom-made Hensinger collar, fill out the Made-To-Measure Hensinger Collar Order Form with the necessary individual measurements. Once completed, please return the order form via email to [email protected]. Please note that made-to-measure Hensinger collars cannot be returned or refunded because of the personalized design.

Allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. Customized and made-to-measure products are non-refundable and non-returnable.

It is necessary to seek advice from a healthcare professional for guidance on suitability, sizing, and assistance with customized measurements. The following factors should be considered:

  • Enhancement or maintenance of breathing function.
  • Improvement or maintenance of swallowing/drainage capabilities.
  • Head contact areas: Head supports maintain the head in a central position. Identifying the base area, where the head and neck connect with the support, is vital for providing optimal comfort and support. Selecting the incorrect base area could impede breathing, swallowing, blood circulation, and could result in jaw discomfort.
  • Proper body positioning: Head support should be complemented with suitable trunk and pelvic support.
  • Head control: The appropriate level of head control and support should be determined by a professional.
