Cervical spine rehabilitation system

, : Cervical spine rehabilitation system. Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1286(2), Sep 14

A system for restoring the natural lordosis of the cervical spine is provided. The system comprises at least a base pillow having areas of varying thickness, and including a protuberance. A central portion of the base pillow preferably includes a depression for receiving a patient's head. A thicker edge portion provides support for the patient's neck, while the protuberance provides support for the patients thoracic vertebrae. A second pillow is positionable adjacent the base pillow to provide further elevation for the patient's head. The system may include yet another pillow having a size greater than the second pillow to provide still further elevation for the patient's head. The system may also include additional pillows having shapes smaller than, larger than, or in between the size of the other pillows. A method of using the pillows to treat a cervical spinal disorder is also provided.

IgE-binding protein (epsilon BP) is a beta-galactoside-binding animal lectin identified by its affinity for IgE. We have reported that epsilon BP also binds the mast cell high-affinity IgE receptor (Fc epsilon RI), via lectin-carbohydrate interact...
