A new cervical orthosis with multiplanar adjustment



A new cervical orthosis with multiplanar adjustment



La Chirurgia Degli Organi di Movimento 82(2): 111-115



It is the purpose of this paper to introduce a new cervical orthosis with multiplanar adjustment. Many orthoses are available to the physician today, but all of them may be classified based on function into two groups: 1) orthoses that immobilize the neck in a fixed position; 2) orthoses that immobilize the patient in a position that may be set in the sagittal plane. At present no orthosis are available to immobilize the neck in a position to anything but the sagittal plane. This new orthosis, with four tridimensional swinging posters, allows for immobilization of the neck in the desired position, according to the clinical evaluation performed. This treatment offers advantages in terms of patient compliance and functional results. An alternative model, with increased stability, has especially been planned for the treatment of pathology at C1-C2.
