BACK ON TRAC™ IS AUTOMATED LUMBAR MECHANICAL TRACTION WITH UNILATERAL AND BILATERAL FLEXION PERFORMED IN UNISON
BACK ON TRAC™is a Lumbar mechanical traction device
The ergonomically correct chair design allows the patient to comfortably start from a seated position
With the press of a button, BACK ON TRAC™ safely moves the patient into supine position with their pelvis and knees in the correct position for the session
BACK ON TRAC™ has no cumbersome restraints allowing for a very comfortable, relaxing therapy session
GOALS OF LUMBAR MECHANICAL TRACTION
Effects of Lumbar Mechanical Traction
Vertebra Separation, which may decrease intradiscal pressure and reduce bulging of nuclear material and may reduce bulging of nuclear material, and may enhance osmosis from vertebral endplates, increasing fluid/blood supply to discs.
Separation and gliding of the facet joints, establishing potential for the improved alignment, articulation, and joint mobility.
Tensing, if not stretching of the system of spinal ligaments.
Widening of vertebral foramina, allowing increased space for spinal nerve roots.
Straightening of spinal curves
Stretching of the spinal musculature, potentially decreasing its sensitivity to stretch and therefore decreasing muscle spasms/guarding. It is also possible that this stretch may improve blood supply to posterior soft tissues.
Indications for Lumbar Mechanical Traction
Spinal nerve root impingement:
Bulging and Herniated disc
Narrowing of the intervertebral foramen
Spinal nerve root swelling
Degenerative joint disease
Extrinsic muscle spasm and muscle guarding
Contraindications for Lumbar Mechanical Traction
Acute joint sprains, strains and inflammation
Spinal instability and general joint hyper mobility
Spinal Acute Fractures
Bilateral neurological signs – may indicate a cord compromise
Easily controlled with the remote
10 vibrators located upper body, lumbar, hip and thigh regions
Can be easily manipulated to provide massage therapy limiting the massage to specific areas of the body
Can be operated without massage therapy if preferred
Controlled with the remote
Heat therapy is located in the Lumbar region
Can be operated without Heat if preferred
Emergency Stop Feature
At any time during the session the Emergency Stop Feature can be enabled and the session will end immediately returning the patient to the seated position
