Headrest for chiropractor's table

Patent No. 6,374,441

Issued: April 23, 2002

Inventor:  Suzanne Begell  (1421 Butternut, Syracuse, NY 13208) 


A headrest for a chiropractor's table for supporting the user's head by direct engagement with the user's face by supportive engagement with frontal sinus, maxillary sinus and facial bone (especially zygomatic bone) areas of the user's face. By using such facial contours, the headrest of the present invention increases the surface area of contact in specific areas of the face, while the patient is in a prone position. The wider surface area reduces the pressure to the frontal sinus and maxillary sinus regions and the facial bones, thereby increases patient comfort substantially over the prior art.
