English to Swedish translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Health Care / Head and chin positioning device
English term or phrase:extensor tone
Potential users fall into 2 general groups –
Those too weak to hold their heads up for any extended time.
Those with a great deal of extensor tone but poor head control (often resulting in their heads getting caught under or to the side of their current headrest and requiring constant repositioning by caregiver)
The goal for users in group 1 is to provide ample support in all directions especially anteriorly. The goal for the second group is to provide a system that would offer enough lateral and posterior support that when they begin to extend their necks they would be invited back into a midline position and not have to worry about getting caught or tangled up with head positioning equipment or have a surface behind the occiput that may provide the perfect spot to push off into neck hyperextension.
