My halo brace keeps my neck and spine from moving. I have to wear it all the time – sigh. The halo part around my head is held in place by four screws (or pins) in my skull. The halo is attached by four bars to a stiff, lightweight vest that fits around my chest.
Sometimes the pins in my head can hurt so I’ve to be very careful to not get them infected and to go gently in my wheelchair.
