The Saunders Clinical Traction Device is a patented device that eliminates the problems patients have had with traditional cervical traction devices and saves hours of set-up time. Studies have shown that cervical traction is more effective in the supine position and that traditional head halters can aggravate TMJ dysfunction. The Saunders Clinical Traction Device is used in the supine position and pulls from the occiput, not the chin, resulting in safer, more effective traction.
THE SAUNDERS CLINICAL TRACTION DEVICE:
* Eliminates TMJ pressure
* Neck wedges rotate through a 30 degree arc and are removable for easy cleaning or replacement. The rotation of the neck wedges combined with the ability to adjust the width ensures that even patients with extra large or extra small necks can achieve a perfect fit.
* Features large adjustment knobs for easier access
* Vinyl head pad provides an easy to clean surface
* Allows complete control of head and neck positions in both flexion and extension.
Adapts easily to fit virtually any commercial traction machine.
