  • “The bara SNAKE is a flexible and warming stabiliser for the neck. It has proved useful for patients with neck problems. Two qualities stand out that make this collar special. Firstly, it has to be adjusted by each user and as such is a good tool to teach patients control of their condition. Secondly, it looks more like clothing than an orthopaedic collar, which makes it great for people with chronic conditions. One size fits all, so the whole family can use The Snake, with or without neck problems. My family often uses it as a travel “pillow” that can be worn as a scarf and then wound up into a brace to support the head during long-distance travel. The Snake is a handy gadget to have at home as well as in the clinic, whether for neck support, first-aid or simply as a fun conversation piece.”

  • “After having been in 2 car accidents and suffered both back and neck pains it has been a great relief to learn about The Snake from Bara. It has made it possible for me to travel, both within the country (even on our potholed roads in the West Fjords) and abroad in coaches, which I could not possibly have done without The Snake. If I try the old foam neck piece it just doesn‘t do nearly as well and then everyone asks, what happened, and that‘s not comfortable either. But with The Snake from Bara I‘m often told, what a beautiful scarf, and that makes me feel happy.”

  • “The bara SNAKE is soft and comfortable and lies beautifully under my neck and over my shoulders. It’s simple to adjust it as needed so that it lies attractively around your neck and provides warmth and support for your sore neck muscles. Besides being a beautiful neck adornment it helps you have good posture and rests your neck muscles.”
