PT-5 Patient-controlled tables are designed with patient comfort & control in mind. Patients control the cervical and lumbar mechanical traction using a controller. Patients increase/decrease traction to their tolerance and need. Traction amounts can be temporarily loosened for changed during use in order to re-adjust the belts and harnesses for effectiveness and comfort.
The PT5 additionally includes gravity traction also set using a controller. Tables include belts, harnesses, and vibration. They are designed to work in conjunction with the Pettibon Rehabilitation equipment. As such it is sold in a package.
Once positioned in traction comfortably, turn on vibration. There are many mechanical &/or gravity traction combinations. Some are more comfortable than others for patients. When traction session is complete, vibration is turned off before loosening both traction devices.
Disc hydration occurs during traction, increasing the disc size. Stretching and wobbling post-treatment relieves any discomfort from the newly acquired hydration.
