Back Raft & Head Blocks

I am evaluating the Back Raft and have a question about using it with a head immobilizer. We use the Multi-Grip Head Immobilizer pictured in the attachement. We place a folded towel over the headpiece of the Back Raft to maintain neutral c-spine. After doing this and sliding the immobilizer between it and the patients head and inflating we have very little support for the headleft on the round immobilizer blocks. Any thoughts on this immobilizer or an alternative for use with the Back Raft.See More
