If you’re looking to elevate your level of care and improve performance, then this is a piece of equipment you can’t pass up.

Multiple Sizing Options
There are few pieces of equipment as customizable as the Laerdal Stifneck Select. This brace is constructed so that it can fit patients of various sizes, and it does so with ease.
It takes four simple steps: measure the patient’s neck, choose the right size on the brace, adjust the brace and then lock it.
The Stifneck Select comes in two varieties: adult and child. They look similar on an initial inspection, and you don’t want to accidentally use one in place of another. While the pediatric one is obviously smaller, we’ve also color-coded them for easy recognition. This ensures that the correct one is selected first without any mistakes or wasted time.
The pediatric one has a pink strap not found on the adult version. You’ll have no problem telling them apart now.
Imperfect adjustment can lead to more harm than good. An already compromised and injured patient can receive further injury if his or her neck brace is making their neck lean to one side. Proper immobilization demands symmetrical adjustment, otherwise you might face problems down the road with irate patients.
The Stifneck Select uses adjustment tracks that only allow symmetrical adjustment. This ensures that there’s no human error while adjusting the brace, as it will not allow you to incorrectly lock the brace.
Worried about forgetting the instructions? Scared you might hurt a patient if you don’t use these constantly? Laerdal is far ahead of you with that. Each brace has the instructions molded right into the unit itself. You’ll have no problem reading the instructions as you perform the adjustment. Whether it’s been a long time or you just forgot a step or two, just turn the brace over and you’ll see the steps right there.
The best patient immobilization equipment is made with doctors and technicians in mind. You want to reach and manipulate the important parts without removing or interfering with the immobilization equipment. This makes things easier for you and safer for the patient.
The Stifneck Select was made to keep certain areas exposed. You can easily check pulse points, perform airway procedures and check oversizedtrachea holes. Not only that, but the unit was made so that even medical professionals with large, thick fingers can still comfortably reach the exposed areas without moving the brace. It’s as good for the patient as it is for the professional.
Ready for Scans
Does the patient need an MRI, CT or other scan? No problem. This brace is made so that it can safely be kept on during all conventional scans, which keeps the patient safe and makes the work easier for technicians. All you have todo is ensure the patient is still the whole time as you run the scan.
The bane of medical professionals is an overstocked inventory. You want to have everything on hand for when it’s needed, but what if you only use a few pieces here and there? For example, you need every neck brace size, but it’s rare that they’re all used.
The Stifneck Select requires that you only keep two types of units: adult and pediatric. This reduces space and makes it easier to accommodate your patients, regardless of the size of their neck.
It’s difficult to find a completely utilitarian piece of equipment that can be used in every circumstance, but that’s exactly what the Laerdal Stifneck Select does. It keeps your patient’s neck immobile and fits every patient that walks through your door. This makes the whole process easier for you while reducing inventory space and costs. Not only that, but it’s simple to adjust and fit to your patient.
