Aspen Cervical Collar
Effective Motion Restriction
The motion restriction provided by the Aspen® Collar has been scientifically evaluated. Utilizing videofluoroscopy, researchers 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.
Minimal Skin Breakdown
Aspen® Cervical Collars minimize skin breakdown while providing substantial motion restriction. The structural elements of the collars have been designed to spread support across broad contact surfaces there by eliminating "hot-spots" that can cause decubitus ulcers. Research has proven that skin contact pressures well-below the capillary closing threshold.
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.
Aspen® Replacement Pads are all about comfort. Dense, clickable foam offers superior cushioning to other leading collars and is your best defense against skin breakdown. Comfort is further enhanced by hypoallergenic, cotton-lined replacement pads that cushion the interface between the "structure" of the collar and the tender skin surface of patients. This attention to comfort results in better patient compliance.
