Details

The special properties of the cervical collar are using a plastic with high durability attached to softer non-allergenic and resilient foam. This makes the collar feel softer and more comfortable than the traditional hard plastic used in most philadelphia collars. This, along with holes for ventilation, greatly improves comfort for the user. The collar is resistant to liquids and cleans easily with mild soap and water.
