Abstract: front page image
(EN)One embodiment of the present application is directed to shaping a neck support (22) to conform to a neck of a patient while the neck is configured with a desired lordosis of a cervical spine of the patient, performing a surgical procedure on the cervical spine of the patient based on the desired lordosis, and during or after the surgical procedure, holding the neck of the patient in the neck support (22) to configure the neck with this desired lordosis, and pivoting the neck cradle about two or more different pivot axes as the neck is held to evaluate two or more different ranges of motion of the cervical spine of the patient.
(FR)Un mode de réalisation de la présente invention consiste à façonner un support cervical (22) de manière qu'il se conforme au cou d'un patient, le cou étant configuré avec une lordose voulue de la colonne cervicale du patient, à exécuter une intervention chirurgicale sur la colonne cervicale du patient basée sur la lordose voulue et pendant ou après l'intervention chirurgicale, à maintenir le cou du patient dans un support cervical (22) afin de configurer le cou avec la lordose voulue, et à faire pivoter le berceau cervical autour de deux axes de pivot différents ou davantage à mesure que le cou est maintenu afin d'évaluer deux gammes différentes de mouvement ou davantage de la colonne cervicale du patient.
