We added a fixed support rod for the flexible lamp head to solve the problem of it slumping down with time and movement. If we had time for further prototypes, our hypothesis is that the supports could be pushed further with clamps. This would allow it to take advantage of the flexibility of the lamp head with the stability of the support rod.
We were glad we made the switch from the pivoting mirror to the flexible lamp head. With the flexible head, we could move it a little forward so it could be easily reachable by the wearer whether they had long arms or short arms. The rig could be operated entirely by the wearer without helpers.
