The unique, integrated shape of the i2i provides a maximal, proximal foundation between the head, neck, and shoulders. The suboccipital along with the integrated low profile occipital components provide posterior support and limit cervical extension while offering resting support.The lateral components promote a midline head position and offer cervical supporting while maintaining range of motion.
Anterior stabiliser arms act as an anchor for the chin prompt and provide an anterior boundary channelling movement into a midline position.
The chin prompt is designed to provide anterior support, to keep the head more midline for meals, and to encourage neck muscle strengthening. It is designed with a curved contact surface and straps that allow it to slide when an unsafe amount of force is exerted, therefore preventing airway obstruction.
For safety, the chin prompt should ONLY be used under a caregiver’s supervision and is NOT to be used during transportation.
