Cervical Orthotic
Services

SOFT CERVICALCOLLAR

The soft collar is a common, lightweight orthotic device made of polyurethane foam rubber with a soft cotton stockinette cover and Velcro closure straps. The soft collar offers various benefits:

  • Warmth
  • Head Support
  • Relief from muscle spasms
  • Relief from cervical strain

It should be noted that soft or foam cervical collar offers the least amount of immobilization to the cervical spine.

Hard CERVICALCOLLAR

Hard Cervical Collars are made of plastizote, which is a rigid polyethylene material. Hard collars are more durable than soft collars. These collars offer various benefits:

  • Head support for neck pain
  • Relief of minor muscle spasm
  • Interim stability and protection during halo application

Hard plastic or metal support collars are used to hold the neck of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis (MS) and other degenerative diseases where the muscles are too weak to support the weight of the skull.

SOMI

The Sternal Occipital Mandibular Immobilizer (SOMI) Orthosis. It is a rigid three-post cervical thoracic orthosis which consists of a rigid malleable chest plate that extends from the pectoral region to the xiphoid. The head sections are height adjustable. It is used for patients with rheumatoid arthritis, immobilization for neural arch features, controlling flexion at the atlantoaxial and C2-C3 segments.

LERMAN MINVERVA CERVICAL OTHOSIS

This 2 Post Cervical Orthosis consists of a thermoplastic anterior and posterior vest extending distally to the xiphoid region and secured to the body with Velcro straps.

HALO

It is used for optimal control of the cervical region. The brace consists of an adjustable metal halo ring coupled to a rigid thermoplastic thoracic jacket by means of an adjustable metal framework. The entire assembly can be adjusted for optimal alignment and stabilization of the cervical spine.

LERMAN NON-INVASIVE HALO

It is a pinless halo system developed with the goal of providing cervical spine immobilization and control similar to the standard halo in a less invasive fashion. The non-invasive halo stabilizes the head with a cervical ring and pads located on the forehead and occiput.
