Motorized Headrest

As ALS patients lose mobility of the neck, most end up in wheelchair headrest like the Savant. This headrest is designed to hold the head rigidly in one position. This could result in further reduced mobility. If the patient had some control of the position that may extend mobility. 


  • Savant Headrest 

  • Control by Eyegaze 

  • Safety software that keeps pALS from being stuck without access to Eyegaze

  • Powered by chair

  • Motion:
