Unparalleled commitment to research driving innovation.
Upper Spine Research
Aspen has innovated several different products focused on treating ailments in the cervical spine. Historically, the flagship Aspen and Vista Collars have provided motion restriction for traumatic injuries and have been shown to effectively minimize the likelihood of skin ulcers. When evaluating motion restriction of a cervical collar, it is not only important to evaluate the degree of gross motion restriction offered by the orthosis, a clinician should also consider the impact on an individual intervertebral level. When evaluating a collar’s impact on skin integrity, evaluation of pressure generated is important, however, ultimately, review and outcome in a clinical setting is most telling due to the complex nature of wound prevention.
Aspen Upper Spine braces have been clinically tested to provide optimal motion restriction while minimizing the likelihood of causing skin breakdown.
