The Savant Headrest™ is custom mouldable gel support for the head.  

Cool, light-weight and easily shaped by hand.



*Savant + Carbon Cover

The Carbon Cover is a new option for the Savant that offers a durable and low-shear material which reduces friction from head movement. The Carbon Cover can be easily wiped with a cleaning solution or disinfectant to maintain a clean and low-profile head positioning device.

The Savant + Carbon Cover offers the same custom gel head-positioning as the original Savant but with the added benefit of reduced friction and easy infection control.
