TRAComputer with couch

Perfected traction therapy

Product description

Using the TRAComputer, traction is applied on the horizontal plane, while exact metering is possible due to the application of relief-bringing intermittent and pulsed traction. Aside from 60 programs with various traction sequences, individual therapy times, patient weight and pulse frequency can be entered over the control key pad. The gentle gradual increase of traction avoids psychogenic stress to the patient. Furthermore, during relaxation periods, minimum traction is maintained to provide permanent relief to the joint for the duration of the treatment.

Besides lumbar and cervical traction, with additional accessories the hip can also be treated. For safety sake, prior to treatment the patient is handed the emergency off switch.

Therapy information

The recognised spinal traction therapy effects relief to the spine and surrounding tissue. Reducing pressure on the intervertebral foramen (IVF) relieves the intervertebral discs and soothes irritated nerves. Conventional methods are mostly based on traction forces on the vertical plane, which in combination with the strong physical stressing of the patient, may cause psychogenic muscle tension and blood stasis. By contrast, horizontal traction provides patients with a pleasant treatment alternative, permitting both exact metering and pulsed or dynamic intermittent traction relief.

A combination of traction and high frequency therapy can achieve cumulative and potentiating effects.

Selected use cases

Traction therapy is beneficial within a broad range of applications, including, but not limited to:

  • Disc herniation with radiculopathy
  • Facet joint syndrome
  • Radiculopathy
  • Disc herniation without radiculopathy
  • Radicular syndrome
  • Spondylarthrosis
