A lot of friends have said they intend to drop by for a visit (and Tony was the first as he dropped in this morning… great to see you, and thanks Tony!). Just so people aren’t too surprised by what a Halo vest looks like here are a couple of photos.
It is basically a shoulder harness to support the rigid neck brace. The brace is held in place by 4 pins. (stop now if you’re squeamish).
There are few complications with a halo however the main ones all have to do with the pins. The pin sites need to be kept clean and they need to be maintained at a consistent tension. I _may_ get used to someone using a torque wrench on my head over the course of the 3 months I’ll be wearing this but I’m not convinced of that.
And yes I have hair. Not sure how I”ll shave my head with this on…
