How To Measure for the Looking Forward Head Support ®
The head ‘LIFT’ benefit is achieved by the length of the band and how it fits the recipient
For this reason, the band is made in different lengths so that there is enough ‘Pull’ but not too much
“Play” to get the required head lift.
When the band or cap is correctly placed on the head (cap) or forehead (band), cross it behind the
neck and then PULL THE ENDS OF BAND DOWNWARD TOWARD YOUR HIPS TO GET AS MUCH STRETCH
FROM THE BAND AS POSSIBLE.
Keeping the band taunt, bring the two ends of the band around to the front of your body and secure
it under the breast. This pulling and stretching will assure you get maximum head lift. The crossing,
pulling and stretching of the band is how the head lift is obtained.
The band should be worn on top of an undergarment (Tee Shirt or Camisole) so measuring should be
done including the garment being worn with the Looking Forward.
