English
Authors' objectives: To assess the safety, efficacy/effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of X Collar compared with conventional cervical collar for managing cervical problem such as cervical injury, cervical spondylosis and cervical sprain and strain.
Authors' recomendations: There was no retrieval clinical study conducted among patients with cervical problems to support evidence on the safety, efficacy/effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of X Collar compared with conventional cervical collar for management of cervical problem such as cervical injury, cervical spondylosis and cervical sprain and strain. However, there was a laboratory study conducted among healthy volunteers without cervical problem showed that X Collar provided more superior cervical stabilization in both seated and supine positions on the backboard without manual cervical stabilization when compared with conventional cervical collars. Such laboratory study was graded as low level evidence.
