Power Headrest Systems
Many states, countries, and driver training programs require the driver to access turn signals, horn, dimmer, wiper, and/or cruise control functions without removing their hands from the gas, brake or steering controls. For individuals affected by spinal cord injuries or other disabilities with limited hand/finger usage, this can be a nearly impossible task. The EMC Power Headrest will meet your needs. The Power Headrest option is available in three different styles. The plain Power Headrest does not incorporate any switches, but can be used for head support. The 1-button Power Headrest includes a single switch for access to Digitone or VIC. The 6-button model incorporates six individual switches for access to multiple user-selected functions. All three Power Headrest options feature motorized activation to swing them into position for driving and retract them to the storage position for unencumbered exit and entry.

The single-button Power Headrest will operate up to eight functions when used in conjunction with Digitone, and can operate up to 16 functions when used with VIC. It utilizes one switch for access with natural head movement. The single switch mounted off to the side enables the drivers to use the headrest to steady themselves while driving without contacting switches inadvertently. Note: This style should be used by all individuals who require assistance with upper body stability while driving from their wheelchair.
The six-button Power Headrest will operate up to six functions utilizing one switch for each function. This style can be used by individuals who do not require assistance with upper body stability while driving from their wheelchair. Note: The six switches are mounted across the headrest and therefore do not allow the drivers to use the headrest to steady themselves while driving without contacting switches inadvertently.
