Gel Ovations has expanded its range of cranial stabilisation products with the launch of a new multifunctional forehead stabiliser designed for clients with cerebral palsy, motor neurone disease, Huntington’s disease and spinal injury.
Part of the company’s Sta-Rite range of rehab solutions, the new unit combines a headrest and multi-adjustable Forehead Stabiliser.
It has been designed to provide users with ‘head drop,’ a higher level of comfort and skin protection compared to traditional forehead straps.
Developed in consultation with OTs, rehabilitation specialists and end-users, the new unit has been designed for use in a variety of applications including wheelchairs, shower chairs, and children’s functional seating.
The Forehead Stabiliser incorporates Gel Ovation’s dimensional gel padding for added support and comfort.
Encased in an easy-clean neoprene cover, the gel inner core provides cooling, whilst eliminating shearing, friction and pressure.
Adaptors are available enabling the client to use the stabiliser with their existing headrest.
The cranial equilibrium maintained by the unit, says Gel Ovations, makes the Sta-Rite unit particularly suitable for users who use eye controls to operate their computers and smart devices.
Constructed from high-strength lightweight aluminium alloy, the Forehead Stabiliser has been designed to be easily adjusted to the user’s exact physical needs, locking securely in place for maximum user safety and stability at all times.
