The Axion Rotary Interface for Wheelchair Headrests can be attached to most headrests and hardware.  It allows headrests to freely rotate, improving the function of the user and reducing shearing on the rear of the head.  Compatible with the Savant Head Positioning, Apex Headrest Pads and other manufacturers.

The Axion is available in three versions, to fit two sizes of balls 1" (25mm),  3/4" (19mm) and to fit Snug Seat (R82) hardware and headrests.


Each version is available for 60 or 90 degrees of rotation.

How it works

The Axion comprises of the base housing, curved rail and ball on a stem. The Axion is an interface mounted between the headrest pad and the headrest mounting hardware. 

The rail rotates through the base and with the headrest. The base remains stationary.  The knob underneath permits locking out the rotation and can be engaged at any position on the rail. 


There are two rotation ranges, 90 or 60 degrees. 

The Axion-90 rail is longer than the Axion-60 rail. This longer rail may project beyond the edge of smaller headrests.  If in doubt, choose the Axion-60 series.


The rotation is 30° each way for the Axion-60 and 45° each way for the Axion-90.
