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 this design enables the collar to maintain skin contact pressures well-below the capillary closing threshold.
The motion restriction provided by the Aspen Collar has been scientifically evaluated. Utilizing video fluoroscopy, 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.
