enreco is a pre-hospital cervical splint design under the New Spinal Injury Protocol - elimination of long spine board in emergency cervical-spine immobilization. A typical cervical collar requires combined use with the long board and the head blocks to maximize spine immobilization while enreco collar includes useful features from both eliminated equipment in one simple design.
Symmetrical fastening and symmetrical placement allow even alignment
enreco is inspired by Scoop Stretcher, which reduces the chance of undesirable movement of injured areas during transfer of a trauma patient, similarly, splitting the back splint of the cervical collar in half and slide the collar in from both sides of the neck will lower the chance of lifting the patient's head too high up or moving it from side to side.
Narrow V-shape back splint for easy insert behind the neck
Bar-shape adjusting knobs for more intuitive adjustment
Shoulder restraint strips to replace head blocks
