What to buy with Danmar Head Support

How to measure Danmar 6810 Hensinger Head Support?

  • Take accurate measurements. There are 2 which are needed per the chart provided in the product specifications.
  • Take neck circumference and round off to the nearest 1/2".
  • Measure vertically between the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the ear lobe and round off to the nearest 1/2". Then subtract 1/2" to allow for ear clearance and head movement.
  • Consider all the variables. Some examples are as follows:
    • If a chest support is used with the head support, subtract its thickness from the "B" measurements. Straps or trunk supports that are 1/8" or less should not affect the fit, but anything thicker than 1/8" should be taken into consideration.
    • Decisions about mounting options should be made depending on the type of seating system utilized.
    • Consider additional options for the increased comfort and functional abilities of the person using the headrest, such as size a reducer (Item # 6821, Narrow or Wide) and High Back (Item # 6809).
