i2i Head and Neck Positioning System

The i2i offers a complete head and neck positioning solution, providing effective support for keeping the head midline and preventing it from falling forwards or back.

For those with a great deal of extensor tone, but poor head control, the i2i provides lateral and posterior support, so that when individuals begin to extend their necks they will be gently invited back into a midline position. The sub-occipital and integrated low profile occipital components of the i2i provide posterior support and set a limit to cervical extension, while also offering a resting spot.

Individuals with poor head control can have trouble interacting with people who are out of their eye line; the i2i counteracts this by gently positioning the head so that users can see straight ahead. Other individuals may experience difficulty chewing and swallowing due to their poor head control and often find this becomes much easier with an i2i head support. 

The i2i helps with these issues and therefore increases the quality of life for the individual, who is then able to see the world eye-to-eye.

Benefits

Aligns the head to midline

The height can weigh 6kg or more, and needs considerable musclular support from the neck to keep it in place. For individuals with poor neck strength, it can be a challenge to hold the head in position all day. The i2i supports the neck to keep the head in midline, without the user having to exert their energy, allowing them to concentrate on daily activites.  

Supports Interaction, Drinking and Eating

Interaction is easier with the i2i, as the midline position allows for a greater range of head movement and field of vision, making it easier for the user to become involved in the world around them. 

The i2i can benefit individuals who find it difficult to eat and drink due to the position of their head. With the head in midline, it becomes easier to the user to chew and swallow effectively.

Encourages Neck Strengthening

The chin prompt is an optional addition to the i2i, and is designed to 'prompt' the chin to stay up in individuals with low tone. This encourages the indvidual to use their neck muscles, and over time the chin prompt can be moved further up until the user can support their head more easily. 

The chin prompt is completely safe and does not present a choking hazard, as it slides down the arms of the i2i when too much pressure is exerted.

Links

Links are essential while setting the right distance of your head pad from the back support. Depending on the distance, extra standard or offset links can be added or removed. The offset link can be used to smooth the link and ensure the head pad is placed at the shortest distance from the back support. 

Please Note: Links can only br added to the TWB range of mounting hardware

Tone Deflector

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tone Deflector

The Tone Deflector is a great addition to a head pad. It is designed for clients with extensive muscle tone, and acts as a great means of absorbing some of the energy of the head going backwards. This device absorbs quick impact compression and diverts angled loading. It offers 10 degree deflection of high tone impact in any direction. It is easy to assemble and is attached at the back of the head pad, making it discreet for the user.

Create Your Own i2i

Create Your Own i2i - What's Available

If an Off the Shelf i2i is not what you are looking for, depending on the complexity of the client, you can create your own i2i by selecting a profile, arms, chin prompt and mounting hardware stem.

Select Profile

The i2i is available in standard profile and low profile. Profile length is the distance from the top to the bottom of the sub-occipital pad. The i2i standard profile offers stronger occipital support while the low profile i2i can be used as a sub-occipital pad which is suitable for people who require more emphasis on midline head positioning.

Select Arms

In addition to the standard length fixed arm, a short arm version of the head pad is available, which is best suited to people who need less support and more freedom of movement. Laterally Adjustable arms in standard and short options are offered to allow unique positioning with a locking mechanism to keep them in place. They can be adapted to individuals’ needs and hence make positioning easier.

Select Chin Prompt

The chin prompt is a dynamic support that provides foundational anterior head positioning. Systematically raising or lowering the chin prompt can be an excellent therapeutic tool to encourage neck muscle strengthening. Chin Prompts are available in standard and trachea. Tracheachin prompt is now available for clients who require more space in front of the neck.

Select Mounting Hardware 

i2i head and neck supports are available with a flip down mounting hardware that helps flip down the i2i out of the way when it is not needed, without having to demount it from the chair. This is unique to Stealth products and helps during easy transfers. The flip down mechanism is smooth and allows for the i2i to slide off smoothly. The advantage of the flip down mount is that the mounting hardware does not have to be re-adjusted. It stays in position and does not lose its adjustments, and after being used it can be clicked back into the original position, easily.
