Which Size Should I Choose?

In order to ensure that you buy the correct size, you will need to measure the circumference of your neck. To find the correct collar, please follow the following steps:

  1. Starting at your neck middle point, measure the circumference of your neck
  2. Add at least two inches onto the measurement of your neck (e.g. if your neck circumference is 16", you will now add 2" to this to make 18").
  3. Select the collar length that matches your neck circumference plus two inches (e.g. if your neck measures 16", a Medium would be the best size for your needs).
Size Collar Length
Extra Small 33.5cm (14")
Small 40.6cm (16")
Medium 45.7cm (18")
Large 50.8cm (20")
Extra Large 55.8cm (22")
XX-Large 61cm (24")

How Do You Fit the Cervical Collar?

The Cervical Collar is extremely easy to fit, featuring a simple touch and close fastening that can be fit by anyone including the person wearing the collar. The fastening uses Velcro, meaning that once secure it will not come undone during use. Furthermore, the use of Velcro ensures that you can fasten the collar from behind without having to see the collar yourself.

Why Should I Trust the Cervical Collar?

The Standard Cervical Collar may not look like much. However its simple design has won the hearts of our customers, with the majority claiming fast and comfortable pain relief. Its simple design works in its favour, well suited for keeping the neck raised in a specific position without causing unnecessary stress.

Can it be Used While Sleeping?

The major benefit of the Standard Cervical Collar is that it can be used while sleeping, which is ideal for users who both struggle to sleep because of neck pain, and users who need to keep their neck supported while they are asleep. Its comfortable and versatile design is actually comfortable to use while you sleep, in part because it is covered in 100% cotton stockinette cushions your neck through the night.

What Does the Standard Foam Collar Feel Like to Wear?

As mentioned above the Standard Foam Cervical Collar is covered in 100% cotton stockinette, making it feel smooth and comfortable on the neck. Its foam interior is extremely comfortable around the neck and can support your neck without you feeling like there's something uncomfortable surrounding it. It's so effective at dealing with neck pain, users have reported that headaches caused by neck pain have been completely relieved.

How Soft is the Foam Collar to Touch?

It is designed using medium density foam, meaning that the material has a lot of give and will bend easily when you can squeeze it in your hands. The foam is surrounded by cotton meaning that the collar is incredibly soft on your skin. Due to how soft it is, you can bend your neck to the side and downwards and the collar will provide support to your neck, and contour to the natural shape of your body.

Is the Foam Collar Suitable for Travel?

If you suffer from neck pain or need neck support, then the Standard Foam Collar is perfect for travelling with. Its trustworthy Velcro fastening will not come undone during use, so the chances of you losing the collar are reduced. However if you are expecting to spend a long period of time on a bus, train or plane, then we would recommend having a quick look at our Travel Pillows category.

Will it Get Hot During Summer?

During summer, ordinary braces, supports and bandages can be particularly uncomfortable, especially if you start to sweat and they begin to chafe. Thankfully, the Foam Cervical Collar is highly breathable, which means that the collar can stay fairly cool even if you yourself are sweating. The breathable fabric is comfortable during hot days, perfect for allowing you to make the most of summer.

How Much Will I Be Able to Move My Head?

The Cervical Collar is designed to allow you to move your head while supporting your neck. The slightly deeper option prevents more movement, however you should still be able to move your head from side to side and up and down.

What Depth is the Standard Cervical Collar?

If you look at the drop down menu above, you will see that you have a choice between a depth of 6.4cm and a depth of 9cm. This choice in depth reflects the type of injury you are recovering from and the size of your neck.

For more serious neck injuries such as whiplash or a herniated disc, we would recommend using the slightly thicker collar as this can provide more support to your neck while restricting movement a little further. The slightly thinner option is best suited to users who suffer from general neck pain, arthritis and other problems associated with ageing.

What is the Foam Cervical Collar Made From?

The Foam Cervical Collar is designed using medium-density foam, something that can support and cushion your neck while still allowing enough movement to get by. It is completely covered in cotton stockinette, a comfortable material that feels soft during use. The two materials are ideal for keeping comfortable while recovering from injuries.

Can I Wash the Cervical Collar?

We would recommend not machine washing or tumble drying the Cervical Collar is this could damage the design. However it is suitable for hand washing should you wish to clean the collar for hygiene purposes.

This collar was true to measurements stated, but I have had to replace the soft side of the velcro fastening with a longer piece as it turns out. I am now wondering why my old collar is still more comfortable for sleeping in bed than this ine- maybe I don;t need the chin notch?
