Shampoo bowl neck support.

The Zero Flex[TM] Hair Care System, available from Direct Supply, makes hair care safer and more comfortable for residents and staff. Designed by a geriatric specialist, Zero Flex eliminates the potential stroke-inducing neck hyperextension caused by traditional salon shampoo bowls. This phenomenon is often referred to as Beauty Parlor Stroke Syndrome and studies indicate that the elderly are more susceptible to it than others.

The Zero Flex System protects residents by allowing hair to be shampooed with the neck in a safe, natural position. It also protects staff and stylists from back strain because they can shampoo hair in an ergonomically correct position.

Residents can remain safely seated in their wheelchairs--no transfers necessary. Because the Zero Flex keeps water from splashing on a resident's face or clothing, it is helpful for residents with Alzheimer's. This portable system is fully compatible with any existing shampoo bowl, sink, or backwash station.
