The Spencer Contour head immobilizer has been studied to assure the optimum head immobilization of traumatized patients. If used in combination with a spine board and a rigid cervical collar, it enables the transportation of a patient in critical condition during long or uncomfortable journeys. Contour head immobilizer is composed of two mono blocks, made of a soft plastic material and a base with belts to fix to various kinds of stretchers. The two shells are positioned with a very resistant Velcro fixation system on the purpose made base, which is fixed onto any type of spine board with the belts provided or by using the Velcro system. Holes have been made inside the two shells, which allow the inspection of the aural pavilions, permitting the verification of any loss of blood or liquids.
The base can be used to fix two mono blocks for adult and pediatric patients, thanks to an additional cushion that can be removed.
The material used for the production of the shell is impermeable and avoids the absorption of organic liquids (blood, vomit, mucous). It cannot be damaged by chemical substances or solvents cannot be modified by physical agents and stays soft even when the temperature varies. It can be easily cleaned and is X-ray compatible.
