Thuasne Ortel C2 Plus Soft Collar Neck Brace
Suffering from discomfort and pain in your neck tends to make the seemingly easiest actions (e.g. turning around) extremely difficult let alone playing sports. The Thuasne Ortel C2 Plus Soft Collar Neck Brace is an analgesic support for the cervical spine. With its anatomical shape, the brace immobilises the area to reduce pain while remaining comfortable throughout use.
Who Can Make Gains with the C2 Soft Collar Support?
Suffering from a fall or trauma to your neck can cause pain and discomfort for a lengthy period of time. The Soft Collar Neck Brace is an analgesic support that helps support the area against discomfort and protect it from further injury. This is ideal if you've been told by your physiotherapist to rest and relax your neck before returning to your active lifestyle.
The Ortel C2 Plus strikes the perfect balance between comfort and effectiveness. Designed with rounded edges, the support is snug against your neck and doesn't dig into your skin. Inside the support is a semi-rigid structure that helps stabilise your neck, which is then covered with a compact supporting foam to help you remain at ease during use.
Sizing Information for the Soft Collar Neck Brace
The Ortel C2 Plus Soft Brace is available in three different sizes. To find the correct one for you, simply measure the circumference of your neck across the throat area as demonstrated in the image below.
Once you have this measurement, please consult the sizing chart below. If your measurement falls on a sizing boundary, we recommend you select a size large for optimum comfort.
|Neck Brace Size ||Neck Circumference (cm) ||Neck Circumference (inches) |
|Small ||28 - 33cm ||11 - 13" |
|Medium ||34 - 39cm ||13 - 15" |
|Large ||40 - 46cm ||15 - 18" |
Which Height Neck Brace Is Right for Me?
The Thuasne Ortel C2 Brace is available in three different height options. To find the right one for you, simply straighten your head and measure the distance between the edge of the chin and the top of the sternum.
If you are having difficulty finding your sternum, locate your collar bones and measure from the intersection at which they meet in the centre of your chest. This measurement should be taken "as the crow flies" from one point to another without running the tape measure along the chin and throat.
|Neck Brace Height ||Measurement (cm) ||Measurement (inches) |
|Short ||7.5cm ||3" |
|Regular ||9cm ||3.5" |
|Long ||11cm ||4.5" |
Why Is a Height Measurement Important?
This measurement ensures the brace you purchase will fit between the underside of your chin and the area at which the chest begins. If you have followed our sizing guidance above and are still concerned about this measurement, we recommend selecting a size larger than indicated.
How Do You Correctly Fit the Thuasne Ortel Brace?
To correctly apply the Ortel C2 Plus, undo the Velcro fastening, tilt your neck back and place the front side of the brace underneath your chin against your neck. Once in place, take the loose sides and attach at the back of the neck, fastening the brace in place using the hook and loop fastening attachments.
If you have a condition that greatly restricts movement, we recommend you seek assistance when fitting and applying your Orten C2 Brace.
