Slightly Used. Sterno-occipital-mandibular ImmobilizationDevice (SOMI)
A sterno-occipital-mandibular immobilization device (SOMI) is a rigid cervical brace that positions your neck in straight alignment with your spine. This brace supports your neck by preventing your head and neck from moving. This level of immobility will allow the damaged structures in your neck to heal faster.
This rigid brace has a front chest plate, along with bars that go over the shoulder. The brace is secured with straps on the bars that attach to opposite sides of the front chest plate. There are no bars that go along your back. The SOMI brace also has a removable chin piece and optional headpiece for added support.
The SOMI brace may be used as a treatment for a severe neck injury or for cervical pain caused by a chronic condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis. It may also be prescribed as a recovery aid after cervical spine surgery.
