Rated 2 out of 5 by louise7273 should come as standard
this is comfortable and is so much a must when using cardio board it should be part of the machines as standard and not an expensive add on as it is difficult to jump without it..my machine has now severed in several places after very little cardio use so just use when stretching

As with other reviewers...not much to say except would recommend, particularly when rebounding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by emra uncomfortable
After reading the great reviews I ordered this but when I tried it I just found it uncomfortable. The support was just too firm. As a result I felt my neck was pushed to an angle that didn't feel right no matter which way round I used it so I decided to return it. It seems to suit others but it did nothing for me. Also it does seem to cost a lot for so little.

I suffer with shoulder and neck problems so after reading the reviews on this I thought I'd give it a go. I am so glad I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gednkerry High price - does the job :0)
I think its a good idea but - its a high price to pay, I agree with other customers it should be in with the Pilates machine as its not cheap to begin with.
I have a bad shoulder which effects my arm - neck - back, it does what it says but it does move around a lot, It does support these areas much better then just the normal headrest on the machine.
I would also like to say - I have been going to the upper limb gym physio sessions avery long time (afew yrs on/off, then the last yr intense every week after surgery - this Pilates machine to go with this headrest is just fabulous - I do little (5-10min) every other day, I'm feeling more stable in my movements, it has taken me 3 1/2 yrs to lift 0.5kg, I'm sure this will help me so much more, most of all I'm really enjoying myself & I do as much or as little as I feel I can to that day. All My physio's have said how well I'm doing, they all think its the best buy you can buy for a long term injury, low impact & u feel very safe doing it, please don't forget to get the right exercises from someone like gp or Physio if you have an injury like myself - I can only do certain movements, but i feel I'm improving every day.

I decideed to buy this as I have an areopilates machine and have been using a small pillow to give me extra support whilst using the rebounder. Oh what a difference this makes now to my rebounding. It allows my shoulders and head to remain steady and in sync with the rest of my body. I can now rebound in ease and really enjoy the whole workout.

Really good addition to the machine and makes a massive difference when rebounding. If you are serious about have the best results then this is an investment worth making

Rated 4 out of 5 by LaBionda Should be included with machine.
Like many people I am the not so happy owner of a "dodgy" neck that can be a real nightmare. I bought the larger width Aeropilates reformer and love it.
It's very comfortable to lie on apart from the neck stand. Didn't realise just how out of alignment my neck was without this support 'til the moment I used it and felt a vast difference. Especially when using the cardioboard.
I personally would expect it to be included with the reformer as so many people have neck and shoulder problems which can so easily be exacerbated.
I wouldn't expect it to be free but the cost could be factored into the price. Useful, as the support is often out of stock so you're forced to use the machine without it whilst waiting for the new.
Seems a tad dear for the substance of it, but to me now it's worrth the weight in gold due to the improvement I've felt.
