Title
(EN) INFLATABLE SPIRAL TRACTION DEVICE, SYSTEM, AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE TRACTION EN SPIRALE GONFLABLE, SYSTEME ET METHODE ASSOCIES
Abstract
(EN)
Traction devices, systems, and methods for their use provide simultaneous axial distraction and one of flexion, extension, or lateral flexion of the spine. The devices permit aligning at least a portion of the spine prior to traction. Traction is applied through air chambers (140, 150, 160, 170) configured and dimensioned to independently apply traction to the chin, and both occipital processes. Spiral traction procedures use sequential inflation of the air chambers, thereby providing axial distraction with spinal joint decompression and simultaneous paraspinal soft-tissue mobilization and/or manipulation. Automated systems and methods are also provided.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des dispositifs de traction, des systèmes et des méthodes associés à utiliser pour une distraction axiale simultanée et soit une flexion, une extension ou une flexion latérale de la colonne vertébrale. Ces dispositifs permettent d'aligner au moins une partie de la colonne vertébrale, avant une traction. Une traction est appliquée à l'aide de chambres à air conçues et dimensionnées pour appliquer indépendamment une traction sur le menton, ainsi que les deux procédés occipitaux. Des procédures de traction en spirale font appel à un gonflage séquentiel des chambres à air, ce qui permet d'obtenir une distraction axiale accompagnée d'une décompression articulaire vertébrale, et simultanément d'une mobilisation de tissu mou paravertébral et/ou d'une manipulation de tissu mou paravertébral. L'invention concerne également des systèmes automatisés et des méthodes associés.
