Finding the proper size cervical collar to fit a pediatric patient can be a challenge. It often seems as if Goldilocks is choosingÛone is too small, another is too big and finally one is just right. Ossur NecLoc Kids Collars use the Broselow-Luten color-coding system to ensure proper weight-based sizing. The ergonomic, two-piece, clamshell design folds flat and has a retaining strap for ease of placement. In addition to being easy to size, smaller NecLoc collars have a back piece that forms to support the larger occipital proportions of the infant and toddler.
