Since 1982, more than 40,000 health care professionals have chosen the
Saunders Cervical Traction units as the best in their class. Due to the
ease and safety for home use and because of the difficulty with
over-the-door units, this neck traction unit was named the Saunders Cervical Hometrac.
Here's more info:
Overcoming Muscular Resistance to Traction: there is inherent
difficulty relaxing while traction is being applied. Research has shown
that much of this muscle resistance is reduced with supine or reclined
traction. This unit was engineered to maximize relaxation and increase
the effectiveness of traction therapy.
TMJ discomfort: The TMJ (jaw joints) are often compromised during traction with competitive units.
Patient Compliance: Hometrac users follow-thru better than those using over-the-door traction.
BENEFITS OF THE SAUNDERS HOMETRAC:
- Allows users to receive the benefits of traction in a relaxed position customizable inclination from 15o to 25o at the push of a button
Directs traction forces toward the occiput (back of the head) thereby preventing compression of the TMJ by forces transmitted to the chin.
- Provides a comfortable and cost-effective option to continuing clinical traction treatments.
