Aspen CTO Spinal Brace combines highly effective motion restriction of the cervical and upper thoracic spine with a level of comfort that makes it well tolerated by patients. Substantially progressive motion restriction in going from a stand-alone cervical collar, to a two-post device, and then on to a four-post orthosis. For these reasons, the Aspen CTO system offers the greatest versatility available when dealing with cervical-thoracic problems in todays cost conscious healthcare environment.


  • Aspen CTO System provides a fully integrated approach for quantifiable motion restriction of cervical spine patients
  • By incorporating design elements that allow the Aspen System to be stepped down from a 4 post CTO, to a 2 post model and then to a stand alone collar, it is now possible to tailor the degree of motion restriction to the specific needs of the patient

More Information

  • Measuring for correct size:
    Use this guidelines to measure the patient for the correct size Aspen Collar.
    - Measure the chest circumference 1 inch below the tip of the Xiphoyd process.
    - For circumferences smaller then 39", trim the ends of the belt panels at the notch.
    - Attach the belt by aligning the keyhole over the aluminum rivet and pull to lock in place.
    - Do this on both sides.
  • Instructions For Fitting:
    - Supine:
      - Slide the CTO underneath the patient while compressing the mattress cover. Logroll the patient if needed.
      - Line up the control clamp to the center line on the chest and attach the Velcro loop.
    - Snap the shoulder straps into place and loosely tighten.
    - Bars may be bent to accommodate patient anatomy.
    Note: To relieve pressure at the front on the collar, bend bars away from the patient.
    - Use a phillips head screw driver to loosen screws to adjust the height of the bars.
    - Tighten the clamp after adjustment.
  • Warnings:
    - Aspen CTO can be altered to mirror changes in the patients condition. For supine patients where posterior support posts are desirable, a pillow may be used under one shoulder to minimize pressure caused by the posterior support post.
    - Be aware that excessive tightening of the shoulder straps will cause traction.
    - Do not use a full size screwdriver to tighten or adjust the support post clamps while the device is on the patient.
    - When advancing to a 4-post configuration, ensure that the post strap covers the support post.
    - For kyphotic patients or for others with postural abnormalities, it is possible to bend the support posts for a better fit.
    - To accomplish this, use a pair of bending irons or remove the posts from the clamp and bend using a vise to ensure that they remain symmetrical.
    - Be careful not to weaken the posts by bending them repeatedly or by bending them more than 45 degrees.
