Since 1982 more than 40,000 health care providers have chosen the Saunders HomeTrac Cervical Traction Device to use in their clinics. But when many of their patients tried to use seated over-the-door traction at home, they…
Couldn't relax because traction applied while sitting has been shown to cause higher levels of muscle activity than supine traction, making the traction less effective.
Risked aggravation of the TMJ or "jaw joints" because of forces applied to the jaw through the chin strap.
Couldn't achieve the amount of force required by their health care professional (over-the-door devices are limited to 20 lbs).
Couldn't achieve the proper angle of force delivery required by their health care professional.
Were uncomfortable-many patients had to return to the clinic for most costly cervical traction treatments.
The Saunders Cervical Traction HomeTrac Device is one of the most popular devices on the market for producing clinic-like results in the comfort of your home. The Saunders Cervical Traction HomeTrac Device has a comfortable head rest that is adjustable for providing the appropriate incline for treatment, and features an adjustable pneumatic hand held pump designed to apply up to 50 lbs of traction. The neck wedges swivel to accommodate different widths of necks and grab onto the mandible of the jaw to prevent loosening around the neck.
