ProCare Adams Semi-Rigid Collar
Although whiplash is usually associated with victims of car accidents, it can actually be caused by impact while playing sports. This makes it particularly common when you're playing contact sports like boxing or rugby. The ProCare Adams Semi-Rigid Collar is constructed to stabilise and support your neck following a whiplash injury, allowing you to recover quickly.
Semi rigid in design, the support holds your neck in a neutral position to provide it with the time necessary to heal. This means you'll spend less time in recovery than if you were to simply let the injury heal without wearing a collar.
Who Can Make Gains with the Adams Semi-Rigid Collar?
We understand how difficult it can be to lay off exercising until your soft tissue injury is fully healed. The Adams Semi-Rigid Collar is designed to speed up your recovery, allowing you to return to sporting activities as quickly as possible. The support also helps stabilise your neck, meaning you can get back on your feet for light exercise even when the injury hasn't fully healed.

Indications for the ProCare Adams Collar
Designed to provide semi-rigid support to your neck, the Adams Semi-Rigid Collar is ideal for use if you've experience soft tissue damage (i.e. whiplash) in the area.

Sizing of the ProCare Semi-Rigid Support
Available in three different sizes, the ProCare Adams Collar fits your anatomy well. To find out which size you require, please measure the circumference of your neck with your head straight and check the table below. If your measurement falls within two of the sizes, it is advised that you choose the larger of the sizes for a more comfortable and less restrictive fit.
|Size ||Neck Circumference (cm) ||Support Height |
|Small ||27 - 34cm ||12 - 13cm |
|Medium ||31 - 38cm ||12 - 13cm |
|Large ||35 - 42cm ||12 - 13cm |
The Adams Semi-Rigid Collar contains mouldable polystyrene beads that can be adapted to suit your physiology. This not only helps improve the fit of the support, but it also helps you remain comfortable for use over long periods of time. These beads are covered by a 100% cotton, naturally coloured stockinette to protect your neck against the beads in the support.
Maximises Patient Compliance
Extremely easy to adjust and apply, the ProCare Adams Collar maximises patient compliance. This facilitates healing, allowing you to make a speedy recovery without fear of re-injury.
Owing to the polystyrene beads within the support, the Adams Semi-Rigid Collar couldn't be easier to clean. The beads permit a quick hand wash using water not exceeding 40°C in temperature.
Do not machine wash as this results in shrinkage.
