It is made of high-density plastic material, large ear holes for monitoring the patient's ear canal.
It can be used with scoop stretcher and spine board at the same time.
Waterproof plastic coating makes it easy to clean and prevents bacterial growth on It.
The Head Immobilize provides safe and effective immobilization of the head and neck for patients suspected of a spinal injury, limiting flexion, rotation, and lateral bending, without limiting patient access to the patient. The wax-impregnated, water-resistant HID delivers secure immobilization under adverse clinical and environmental conditions. The dual adhesive strap provides maximum motion restriction while releasing easily during removal. The Head Bed II is designed and priced for single use so there are no clean-up or lost equipment problems. Compact and lightweight, Head Bed II is a universal product suitable for adults, children, and infants.
Only trials that directly compared the efficacy or safety of transfer methods and/or immobilization devices were included. Studies that measured voluntary head movement after the fitting of the cervical carthorses and those that did not evaluate motion across individual spinal segments were not included.

Results - A lift-and-slide transfer method with a full-body immobilization device creates less motion than a log-roll maneuver. Extrication-type cervical immobilization collars are limited in their ability to control neck motion in the Head Immobilize injured cadaver model.
Head Immobilizer is an emergency response product that can be used on spine boards and stretchers to prevent the injuries that may have occurred on the head or neck of the patients from being carried to further dimensions. In emergency situations after the accident, the use of the spine board or the connection belts on the stretchers allows healthy patient transfer by greatly restricting the head and body movements.
Used in conjunction with head immobilizers, backboards, and stretchers, it allows preserving the status quo by greatly restricting the movement of victims.
Head immobilizers can be used wherever stretchers and spine boards are used.
Conclusion - Allied health professionals responsible for the management of the cervical spine–the injured patient should become familiar with and employ a lift-and-slide transfer technique in appropriate situations and should not rely exclusively on extrication-type collars to immobilize the neck.
