The Aspen Cervical Neck Collar was designed to optimize support and comfort, two key components for better patient outcomes. The structure of the collar is engineered to provide substantial motion restriction without producing painful pressure points that can lead to skin breakdown or poor patient compliance.
For ultimate comfort, all of the collar's contact surfaces are cushioned with cotton-lined, breathable foam padding.
Aspen Cervical Collar Features:
Aspen Cervical Collars minimize skin breakdown while providing substantial motion restriction.
The structural elements of the collar have been designed to spread support across broad contact surfaces there by eliminating "hot spots" that can cause decubitus ulcers. Research has proven that this design enables the collar to maintain skin contact pressures well-below the capillary closing threshold.
The motion restriction provided by the Aspen Cervical Collar has been scientifically evaluated. Utilizing videofluoroscopy, researches have documented both the translation and angulation of each vertebral segment through the entire range of motion.
Results show the Aspen system to be unsurpassed in its ability to safeguard the patient.
Aspen's unique CushionFlex Tabs allow the collar to conform to each patient as it is tightened for a true custom fit. Tightening the Occipital Support Strap further customizes the collar by creating an adjustable, three dimensional "shelf" that cradles the back of the head. Comfort is further enhanced by hypoallergenic, cotton -lined replacement pads that cushion the interface between the "structure" of the collar the the tender skin surface of patients. This attention to comfort results in better patient compliance.
