Headmaster Collar Choosing Size
Sizing: See chart. If measurements fall between sizes, choose smaller size. Measure front center of chin to angle of mandible in a straight line, just below the ear.
The head support must fit properly as shown below, please use the following instructions when determining the correct size.
Take a measurement with a ruler and measure starting at the center part from the chin, in a straight line to the corner or where the jaw angles about an inch below the ear – measure under the jaw.
Choose the size collar which most closely matches the measurement. If the measurement falls between two size collars, select the smaller sizes.

How Do I Order The Headmaster Collar?
First, take a measurement. Look at the picture to see how. Start from the angle of the jaw, about an inch under the bottom of the ear and slightly forward. Then measure to the center, front of the chin. Take the measurement under the jaw line. Choose the size and color of the collar from the dropdown menu. The colors available are Gray, Beige & Black. If needed, choose add-ons: neck pad, extension pads, anterior support, extra chin pad or extra strap. These are sized according to the collar. From the dropdown menu, pick the size; they are one size to fit 2 collars. So, the large collar takes a large/medium size accessory. Choose accessory color. If you are not sure about an accessory, contact us, or you can always come back and order at a later time.
How Do I Clean The Headmaster Collar?
The cloth material is Veltex. To wash the chin piece, we recommend hand washing with a mild detergent and lay flat to dry. Same method would be used to wash the large strap ( make sure to rinse well so there is no soap residue to hurt the skin). The material on the collar itself can also be washed like this or just wipe with a damp sponge.
Can I Use The Headmaster Collar in Water?
The collar has a core of spring steel (which is welded together to form the “hoop”), this is covered by rubber tubing which is glued together. This is then covered by the fabrics. So, water can get into the steel, and yes it will rust. We do know that some people use them in water (whether the shower or pool), and just replace them when they rust out (because they do – eventually!)
We have been asked about using it for water activities, and it is not “water proof” as indicated above. If you take the fabric off, it is possible that the rubber joint could be sealed, which should prevent the steel core from rusting. It might wind up being a little cosmetically challenged, but it could work. This is purely hypothetical – and not really recommended.
Does The Headmaster Collar Contain Latex?
Yes, the collar made with a natural rubberized latex material. We do have latex free headmaster collars in Gray Only. All the other parts for the collar are latex free and can be ordered above.
Radiation Fibrosis Syndrome
Many people are not familiar with this cause of drop head syndrome or loss of head control. Those with head and neck cancer are often treated using radiation. This can lead to damage of neck muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Radiation Fibrosis Syndrome (RFS) is a progressive disorder where excessive scar tissue forms and the effects may not be evident for months after treatment. The condition is permanent. Dr. Stubblefield’s article on RFS explains details about this condition. To help treat symptoms and improve quality of life, he recommends using the Headmaster Collar.
