Occian Back perfect add on for comfort.
Miami J NECK BRACE NOT INCLUDED
Clinical evaluations in leading trauma centers demonstrate that, by simply replacing the standard back of the Miami J® or Miami Jr®. with the Intuitech™ pressure-relieving foam of the Occian Back, medical professionals can virtually eliminate occipital breakdown for multi-system trauma patients, without sacrificing c-spine stability.
Universal Size easy fit to any Miami J neck collar.
