What do you use to support a bobbly head in the shower? My shower chair only comes up to my mid back and I don't have the neck strength to keep my head up in the shower.

I can't imagine a way to do that. You need a shower chair with tilt and recline.

I agree. You need a tilt recline shower chair. If you have a bobbely head now, just imagine when the rest of your trunk becomes paralysed.

We did not have a tilt shower chair (no room) but used a spa pillow such as people use in the tub, combined with the neck rest.

Your shower chair obviously doesn't have a neck rest. Is there a way to add one? If not, I think most all of us will recommend a new chair.

We have a shower chair from nuprodxs (I think thaTs the name). It reclines and has a headrest. Courtesy of the Gleason Foundation. They are wonderful. Wanted many measurements and the chair fits and works in our space.
