Abstract : The technic for fabricating a latex inflatable bladder to be used in conjunction with the commercially available Myo Cervical Collar has been described in detail. The latex material used is one which is simple to manipulate and possesses excellent physical properties for this type of application. Due to the dynamic nature of this appliance, a rather small assortment of sizes of both collars and inflatable bladders can be shelf stocked for ready availability to meet patient requirements.
