Abstract

Loss of spinal alignment can lead to neurological compromise in individuals with unstable spine injuries. We compared the ability of the Roto-Rest bed and the Stryker frame to immobilize an unstable cervical and lumbar segment in a cadaver. The Roto-Rest bed was superior to the Stryker frame in the immobilization of both cervical and lumbar fractures.
