Custom collars are specifically designed for patients that require a neck collar for day to day activities. Often, individuals seek a custom collar when they require their collar for lengthy periods of time and no other existing, pre-fabricated collar suits their taste or comfort level. Custom collars vary greatly depending on the need of the user, with price ranging also. As an example, one person with ALS had a collar consisting of a molded back rest to fit from his waist to the top of his head with a head band around his forehead. This meant that his neck had nothing around it, yet his head and neck were held in a good position for ultimate comfort.
