Tracheotomy Philadelphia Cervical Collar.
This cervical collar is made specifically for patients who need to immobilize the head and neck movements because of a spinal cord injury and also have to live with a tracheotomy, permanently or temporarily. The inhibition of head and neck movements, allow the spine off time to heal. This product is particularly popular among those patients because of it's comfort, ease of adjustment and efficient support. It's design is very lightweight and is made of molded plastazote foam and sits on rigid plastic occipital and mandible posts so you feel as little discomfort as possible holding your head highly through out your day.
There are many kinds of collars patients can be prescribed; cervical, chandler, four post and Philadelphia. Their differences are in their designs and are designed for different patient needs. If your physician has prescribed a Philadelphia Cervical Collar, you know that you are in need of a rigid, yet adjustable neck brace that offers support and a personalized fit. This product is shaped to fit the contours of the chin and shoulder and is perforated for ventilation and hygienic purposes. For medical purposes and ease of use this Cervical Collar is fully radiolucent (transparent through x-rays) and has an open space for your tracheotomy needs, something that not all Philadelphia cervical collars have in common.
With 4 available sizes, XS-XL and the double hook 'n pile closure, the fit is sure to be most comfortable and effective at supporting the neck and head properly. Sizes are determined by neck circumference and height measurement from the sternal notch to the chin. It's appearance is as sleekly designed as a cervical collar can possibly be, especially considering it's neutral color and adjustment simplicity.
Please consult your physician for an accurate measurement to determine your correct size and a thorough explanation on how to use and care for the device.
Sized according to neck circumference and height measurement from sternal notch to chin.
