The neck support collar was trialled in 10 sites across the UK and in Ireland and was very positively received by patients, carers and professionals.
Some of the comments included:
“This collar gives support but also more freedom of movement – I can wear it to drive.”
“Other, more rigid collars were painful – I couldn’t wear them for too long, I can wear this collar for eight hours straight – I wear it at work.”
“I’ve tried the soft foam collars before but they don’t give enough support, they just crumbled.”
“Looks good… everyone who sees me in it says it looked brilliant – like a polo neck. I’m less self-conscious now.”
