Spex Stylo 160
Head Support

For the simple, yet adjustable and adaptable head positioning solution

Stylo 160 is crafted to achieve the best of both worlds: simplicity and ease of adjustment, yet highly adjustable and versatile.

Clever use of twin ball joints means the head pad can be orientated to where the optimal support is required, through an available 45° of pitch; coupled with two hinge joints that offer infinite up and down, and forward and backward adjustment. The finished product… an extremely versatile mechanism that allows true adjustment of the pad position, creating a solution that is completely adaptable to the user.

Available in flip-back option for ease of transfers.

The Stylo Head Support is transport approved.

Stylo - The latest head support technology from Spex

Designed for the individual who:

  • Presents with increased thoracic or lumbar curvature of the spine and therefore requires the head support to be placed afar from the back support.
  • Presents with rotation or lateral flexion of the trunk and may require the head support to be positioned in a specific spot, offset from the back support.

Flip-back option

Flip-back option

Available on both the Stylo 160 and 260, the flip-back mechanism option is an excellent choice for individuals who require assistance with transfers in and out of the wheelchair. Simply slide the red collar up to disengage the stem and swing backwards.
