Finally, a Solution for Scalp Pain & Hair Loss for Wheelchair Users!

Do you or a loved one use a wheelchair and suffer from scalp damage, hair loss or discomfort as a result of your wheelchair headrest? If you spend much of the day in your wheelchair, your headrest might be the problem. When your head moves against your wheelchair’s headrest, the headrest resists movement and causes friction and shear. That friction and shear can lead to scalp pain and hair loss. Fortunately, there’s finally a solution that works – a solution that’s focused on protecting the heads and scalps of wheelchair users.

    Excellent!! Needed a new headrest cover for my sisters wheelchair. Great fabric and a great price. This one is way better than the original that came with her chair. Went on easily and looks beautiful. I’d definitely buy this again. PS customer service is wonderful. Great job.
