ABC’s Boom Headrest


An aircraft seat headrest has been launched that is designed to maintain orthopaedic support of the passenger’s neck and nape, which can help them sleep – and means they would not have to take their own travel pillows on flights.

Many standard headrests, especially in economy class, do not provide nape or neck support, only allowing the head to lean on the back or wings (side supports). Advanced postural studies have shown that the ideal headrest must carry the weight of the head by tightly embracing the nape, neck and head.

Thus the ‘gooseneck’ multifunctional and adjustable mechanism of the Boom Headrest, designed by ABC International for retrofit or line-fit on many seat models, is designed to provide passengers with various neck and head support options.
