ReSolve® Halo

ReSolve® Halo

  • The industry’s only MR-Conditional halo system (Tested safe at 3-Tesla)
  • The only halo proven to minimize the risk of dangerous scalp burns resulting from halo pin heating phenomena
  • Glass composite ring and ceramic-tipped pins are non-conductive and induce no dangerous current flow
  • MR images are clear and artifact-free

More Spinal Traction

Why are the number of threaded holes so important?

A. Studies have shown that 13 - 28% of halo patients develop pin site infections. Bone remodeling is also possible. Either of these conditions may make it necessary to relocate the affected pin site. Ossur halos provide the most threaded holes, i.e., more options initially, and when pin relocation is necessary.

What is a Low Profile Superstructure, and why is it different?

A. Low Profile means that the uprights usually do not extend above the ring. Also, they are angled slightly so they don't project straight up from the vest. This means that ambulatory patients will be less likely to get "hung up" on door frames, car doors, etc. All Ossur halos utilize Low Profile Superstructures.
