Inflatable Collars For Comfortable & Custom Neck Support

Inflatable collars provide a custom fit those who need options when using collars that are not available with traditional neck collars. In addition to both comfort and level of support, the inflatable collars offer the addition of cervical traction, lifting the weight of the head from the neck and shoulders. The amount of traction differs for the different types of inflatable collars, along with options for control of each side individually. This can be beneficial for those who have scoliosis or need support for weak neck muscles.

inflatable collars

In general, these inflatable collars should not be applied with traction force to a recent injury to the neck. Some of the inflatable collars provide a great deal of traction design to relieve symptoms of degenerative cervical spine conditions, pinched spinal nerves and chronic muscle spasm. Applying the inflatable collars to a recent injury could possibly cause more damage, so consult your heath care provider.

When using inflatable collars for support, you should only apply the amount to achieve a comfortable support and no more. The benefits are increasing support as the condition progresses and the ability to control the level of support as compared to a standard one size collar.

All of these use latex in the collar itself and/or in the inflation bulbs.
