Armrest and Neckrest

Armrest Options

For many people, armrests are very important for offloading the upper limbs and sometimes people have issues when they cannot get adequate upper limb support, because the armrest is not correctly positioned under the arm. This is normally because the armrest is too wide. Another common problem is that the armrest is not height adjustable and or retractable, and as a result, it is difficult for the user to get sufficiently close to the desk. We at Ergochair have developed a range of armrests that can be used for nearly every upper limb need. If you are not sure which armrests will best suit your needs, please contact us.

Upholstered Armpads

Description: If the standard armrest height does not meet your needs, it is possible to increase or decrease the height by 50mm using a specialised bracket.

Headrest:

Description: The headrest is a large diameter flat support designed to be positioned behind the back of the head. The rest is not really designed to support the head weight in an upright position, but does provide great positional feedback to the user to ensure that they position their headrest far enough back.

  • Height: 180mm
  • Width: 220mm

V- Rest:

Description: The V-Rest is essentially a hybrid of a neck roll and a headrest. The support is flat enough to be used as a headrest, which is great for giving users feedback on the position of their head. Equally, however, it can be rotated into a highly supportive neck rest that can take some of the weight of the head.

Key Measurements:

  • Height: 170mm
  • Width: 280mm
