From TalarMade’s website:
The Head Up Collar is a revolutionary new cervical orthosis device to replace conventional neck support collars currently used for conditions resulting in head drop.
Originally developed for Motor Neurone Disease patients the collar can offer a functional alternative for many conditions that require support for the head and neck.
The award-winning ‘Head-Up’ project was originally a collaboration between Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.
The team was brought together by the NIHR Devices for Dignity Healthcare Technology Co-operative. Talarmade were selected as the distributor of choice for the Head Up Collar due to their forward thinking and evidence based approach to healthcare interventions.
