    Bouncing head

    Hi, I am looking for advice and helpful tips. I am placing it in more than one help section, I hope that is okay but I did not know exactly where to place it.
    When travelling in my wheelchair in a WAV or an ambulance I can’t stop my head from ‘bouncing’ around. Does anyone have any tips or Devices that they use to stop this happening. It’s just because I have not got the strength any more in my neck. Also, some of the roads are in desperate need of repair.
    Thank you.

    David

    I have a new wheelchair headrest that has helped a bit with this although I still get a fair bit of wear and tear on my poor neck, especially from going over potholes. I think it is called a Contour headrest that has good padding and sides/wings that can be adjusted and cushion my head, stopping it bouncing too much.

    What sort of chair, seating and headrest do you have?

    I drive from my wheelchair and dont use anything as a driver as angle good

    As a passenger in a normal car seat that dont support me like my chair does i use a U shape travel neck pillow. I use this if travelling up back in power-chair in the boot area.
