Title Commentary. A functional explanation for a proprietary external head weighting device: A commentary on proposed neurophysiological mechanisms
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2013 Fall;2013(4):Online access only p 73-76
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Objective: The purpose of this commentary is to provide theoretical constructs as to how a head weighting device may work in human populations.

Discussion: A patented headweight device has been previously tested and published in the scientific literature. While these studies show the ability of this headweight device to make postural changes, the mechanisms behind this headweight device remain largely unknown. Theoretical constructs as to how this device may work in human populations are discussed.

Conclusion: The neuromotor control of posture may be affected by repeated external stimulus such as the headweight device described here. In the future, dosage, weight, and placement guidelines should be created to help physicians appropriately apply this postural headweight device.
