Pad options

pad sizes

Standard pad

The standard pad is an ellipse shape and can be formed to conform to the individual’s head by creating a gentle concave.

Choose from 3 sizes: mini, medium and large. 

occipital pad

Occipital pad

Occipital pad cups the person’s head offering gentle lateral support to clients with hyperextension in the neck.

Choose from 2 sizes for better pressure distribution.

4 point headrest

4-point pad

This X-shaped headrest provides both maximum support to occipital and temporal areas with minimal pressure. By cradling the individual’s head, it provides gentle lateral support with lots of contact area and has a maximum impact on posture while not being too bulky or interfering with the ears.
