Aspen® CTO

In stock
Aspen CTO

The Aspen® CTO combines a high level of motion restriction of the cervical and upper thoracic spine with a level of comfort that helps make it well tolerated by patients. Research has shown substantially progressive motion restriction in going from a stand-alone cervical collar to a two-post device and then on to a four-post orthosis. For these reasons, Aspen CTO system offers versatility when dealing with cervical-thoracic problems in today’s cost-conscious healthcare environment. The Aspen CTO fits patients with torso circumference measurements of 26-53 in (66-135 cm).

Promotes Enhanced Motion Restriction

Promotes Enhanced Motion Restriction

The Aspen Cervicothoracic Bracing System™ (Aspen CTO) provides a fully integrated approach for quantifiable motion restriction of cervical spine patients. Physicians are now able to prescribe patient therapies based upon the needs defined at specific vertebral levels to help ensure the best possible outcomes.

Multiple Options
Multiple Options

By incorporating design elements that allow the Aspen CTO to be “stepped down” from a 4 post CTO to a 2 post CTO model and then to a stand-alone collar, the degree of motion restriction can be easily tailored to the specific needs of the patient.

Detailed Performance
Detailed Performance

Utilizing fluoroscopic technology, university researchers and practicing clinicians have quantified cervical motion restriction at each vertebral segment. In data compiled for each of the three different orthotic configurations, numerical results are shown in the table and graphically shown as insets on the photographs. The gold wedges show motion allowed in flexion and extension when moving from the 4 post CTO, to a 2 post CTO, and finally to an Aspen Collar.
