"This is where the future of cervical immobilization is headed"
-Bryan Bledsoe, DO, FACEP, EMT-P

Professor of Emergency Medicine
University of the Nevada School of Medicine
"Truly a milestone in the evolution of cervical spine care"
-Mike Smith, BS, MICP (EMS Magazine)
Mount Horeb Fire & EMS Agency
"We would like to express our pleasure with your product, the X-Collar. We have had the product in use for several months. The X-Collar provides superior support of the head and neck. Once immobilized the patient is a complete package and more stable when moving to the backboard. We are very happy with our switch to X-Collar".
Dr. Tamakawa's Testimonial - XCollar Training in Japan 2009
Dr. Tamakawa from Japan informed us in his e-mail that he and his rescue team members were happy to find that when they used the XCollar, they didn't need to hold the patient's head manually during treatment; describing the XCollar as "having excellent potential for keeping cervical stabilization". You can find the same statement in the conclusions of the study published in the 2009 April issue of the journal Pre-Hospital Emergency Care.

Kim Lamprecht, O’Fallon EMS, Illinois
"I am very pleased with the way that they prevent more movement of the cervical spine when applied as opposed to the collars we use now. Our system and ITLS is also advocating the use of them".
