Emergency cervical collars are used as orthopedic braces for patients who have suffered traumatic head or neck injuries, and can be employed in treating chronic conditions. These are available in various sizes to accommodate adults, children, and infants suffering from cervical injuries and disorders. The use of emergency cervical collars has increased with increase in incidence of trauma-related injuries. For instance, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimated that 14,390 neck fractures were treated at the U.S. hospital emergency rooms in 2009, out of which 2,692 were related to sports.
The major factors that drive the emergency cervical collar market are increase in incidence of cervical disorders, mainly cervical spondylitis, rise in geriatric population who are more prone to neck & head pain, growth awareness programs, and technological advancements in developing new cervical collar products. In addition, high incidence of road accidents and sports-related injuries, and change in lifestyle of the people are expected to propel the market growth. However, cervical collars increase intracranial pressure, and therefore they are uncomfortable for patients, which restrains this growth. The introduction of new innovative products by key vendors to replace the uncomfortable hard cervical collars and development in healthcare infrastructure in untapped emerging economies are expected to provide new market opportunities in the near future.
