As a single piece, that requires no assembly, the Stifneck Select Collar is an easy choice for patients requiring spinal immobilization.
Strong quality and molded directions on the back of the collar mean that providers will always be able to administer proper sizing and application. The locking mechanism ensures symmetrical adjustments, and gives providers the peace of mind the collar is locked safely into place.
Quick and easy fitting
In 4 steps your patient is ready for further transport:

This video demonstrates how to achieve the proper application and sizing of the collar.
The Stifneck Select Collar has an oversized tracheal opening for advanced airway procedures and pulse checks, as well as a rear panel opening for c-spine palpitations, ventilation, drainage and visualization of the neck. The Stifneck Select Collar performs well regardless of weather conditions, due to its in-molded Velcro® fastenings. Because the collar packs flat it is also spatially efficient.
Stifneck Select Pediatric Collars
For pediatric patients there is a specially sized Stifneck Select Pediatric Collar with 3 different sizing options: Pedi, Midi and Mini. This enables providers to adapt care to any patient. The Stifneck Select Pediatric Collar is also fitted with a pink strap for easy recognition in an EMS bag.
None of Laerdal’s collars are made with natural rubber latex. The collars are radiolucent, MRI and CT-scan compatible.
