  • A biomechanical study utilizing videofluoroscopy to analyse motion restriction in cervical collars found the Miami J collars unsurpassed in their ability to provide stability and safeguard the patient (J of Rehab Research and Development, 2003, Vol. 40, No. 6).
  • With regard to pressure ulcers, a study analyzing the skin pressure patterns produced with cervical collars found the Miami J collar to be very “patient-friendly” and to provide superior comfort. In contrast to collars such as the Philadelphia and the Stifneck, the Miami-J collar design was found to exert pressures well below the capillary closing level (J. Trauma. 1994 Nov;37(5):714-720).
  • A 2004 study comparing four cervical collars judged the Miami-J superior in restricting cervical range of motion and in producing low mandibular and occipital pressures. It concludes that the design of the Miami-J collar may markedly reduce the risk of occipital pressure ulcers without compromising immobilization (J. Trauma. 2007;63(5):1-7).
  • A 2014 study ranked the Miami-J cervical collar superior in both comfort and immobilization, concluding that it was a good all-round collar for both emergency and long-term treatment treatment (Scan J of Trauma, Resus & Emer Medicine 2014. 22(37)).
