The Cervical Neck Pillow is made from a soft and flexible, hypoallergenic, polyurethane foam. The foam product has been specifically developed to have very fast recovery characteristics from its compressed storage stage. The foam combination of different chemicals has allowed this product to ensure comfort and longevity. This foam product is one that has a ‘spring’ to it, but is still soft. It is designed and moulded into a specific shape to aid recovery from neck pain, injuries or post operatively. The neck support cushion is shaped to fit the contour of the neck’s natural curve. The foam product is covered with a very light and soft, but durable, skin-friendly cover, which is ultrasonically tape sealed to provide a completely airtight and waterproof device. A pressure vacuum valve is inserted into the product to create a vacuum. This makes the product compact, lightweight and easy to travel with. It can be stored in a small space.
This product can sustain the rubber cycle autoclave procedure, which is ideal for multiple client use. This high-quality medical device is environmental friendly, controls cross infection and makes it easy to apply medication.
