Short for “Stabilize In Place Quickly,” the new SIPQuik Vacuum Cervical Splint recently developed by Care 2 Innovations, addresses some major challenges with the rigid C-collars currently being used in the field. (Independent Studies Show a Better Cervical Collar). Unlike traditional cervical collars, the one-size-fits-all SIPQuik is soft, conforming to the body with a micro-bead filling so the patient can remain as comfortable as possible during stabilization. A built-in vacuum pump quickly removes the air and locks the collar in place to custom fit the patient’s anatomy.
The SIPQuik is easier for first responders to use and far more comfortable for the patient (already usually in considerable pain) to wear than rigid C-collars. And not only that, it’s safer. Indeed, recent studies have demonstrated that rigid C-collars can actually cause more harm than good, by stretching the neck and restricting jugular venous return. By solving these issues simply and elegantly, the SIPQuik by Care 2 Innovations proves itself as a win-win product for both medical professionals and patients.
