For 30 years, the Headmaster Collar has been the collar of choice for people requiring head and neck support as a result of:
Dropped Head Syndrome (DHS)
Radiation Fibrosis Syndrome
Motor Neurone Disease and many conditions resulting in neck muscle weakness
The Headmaster Collar supports the next and distributes the weight of the head after an injury. The extension pad option comes with two pads (collar sold separately) that increase lateral support. The neck pad (collar sold separately) is moldable and offers form-fitting posterior support. Both accessories are used at the back of the neck with the collar.
The Headmaster Collar is available in sizes ranging from infant to large. Using the perfect size is crucial for an effective and safe recovery. To get the most accurate size, measure from the chin to the corner of the jaw.
This cervical collar is made to comfortably treat neck injuries and conditions. Accessories are available to make minor adjustments to the fit. The Headmaster Collar offers great support and helps create optimal positioning.
