The Extended Chin Strap is designed to address edema of the neck, mandible and the lateral aspects of the face. It covers the lateral aspect of the head in front of and behind the ear. The open neck seam creates a pocket between the two layers of fabric which can accommodate your choice of padding. The Velcro straps at the back of the neck and top of head can be adjusted to comfort level, making the garment suitable for overnight wear. The garment can also be worn with the JoviPak Universal or Peri-Auricular Neck Pad based on the desired area of coverage.
