Symmetric Designs Headmaster Collar

The Symmetric Designs Headmaster Collar offers a cool and comfortable solution to the problems of patients with compromised physical abilities due to problems like ALS (a.k.a.  Lou Gehrig’s disease), arthritis, motor neurone disease and many other conditions that weaken the neck muscles.

Clear Selection

The Symmetric Designs Headmaster Collar is a comfortable head support with low heat retention to keep the patient cool. It is designed to be simple to apply and remove, courtesy of its quick release velcro. Maintenance (cleaning etc) is also straightforward. The patient will experience improved breathing and swallowing as the support opens the trachea and esophagus. This improvement in the ability to perform daily functions is one of the key benefits of using an orthopedic support for the treatment of conditions like arthritis. Patients suffering from other motor neurone diseases (like Lou Gehrig’s disease) can similarly benefit from wearing supports like the Headmaster Collar.

For the fitter, the Symmetric Designs Headmaster Collar offers good access to a tracheal tube if the patient needs one. It is also easy to fit and the fitter can simply bend it by hand as needed. If there is a need to modify its function, there are several accessories that are available for this purpose. Another advantage of the collar lies in the fact that all parts are replaceable. This makes for economical long term use, as you will not need to replace the entire device even if only one part is damaged or wears out.

In addition to these benefits, you will only need to perform a single measurement to determine the correct size.
