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 shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, hand and thoracic spine can also be treated. For safety sake, prior to treatment the patient is handed the emergency off switch.
