Anatomotor Bed - Decompression Therapy

Treatments can be claimed on most insurances or as a tax deduction
Relax
Anatomotor Bed has a controlled, deep-kneading massage and is equipped with a moving table top that glides the patient back and forth just under the normal respiration rate, approximately eight times a minute.
During this rhythmic movement of the table top, the stationary back rollers can be raised or lowered to create a soothing massage to the spinal muscle structure.
The legendary traction methods used with the Anatomotor Bed is a time-tested treatment for lumbar, cervical and bucks traction, safely and effortlessly

Comfort
The desired deep-kneading massage action between the hyphotic and lordotic curvatures may be controlled by independently raising or lowering the rollers for a back massage.
Once a comfortable pressure is obtained the massage aspect of the Anatomotor induces muscle relaxation, breaks down adhesions, and increases circulation, lymphatic flow, and spinal mobility

Traction
The traction can be programmed to automatically stop in the relaxed position for the lumbar, cervical and bucks traction at the end of treatment time. The time can be up to 30 minutes. Usual treatment time is 7 to 10 minutes.

Intermittent or constant traction to the fourth and fifth lumbar area is easily applied. The traction harness is secured around the crest of the ilium; counter traction, under the rib cage. During lumbar traction, the rollers can create a slight flexion of the lumbar spine, helping eliminate lumbar lordosis. A flexion stool can be used to help flatten the lumbar curvature. Unilateral traction or rotation under traction may also be achieved.

Lumbar Traction Often used in treating sciatica, traction can be applied to the lumbar region through one or both legs. If desired, the traction force can also be directed to the knee and hip area.

Arm-Shoulder Traction, is applied to the thoracic area by using the hand gripper bar. Pressure also may be concentrated to the concave side of a scoliosis, helping to counteract a curvature.

Arm Traction, is achieved through the body weight of the patient. This technique is effective for shoulder and elbow traction.

The Anamotor Bed Cervical Device, eliminates all pressure on the chin during cervical traction. This device is an easy way to administer cervical traction and is particularly comfortable for patients with TMJ problems.

The Head Halter, concentrates the traction pull to the occiput. It is also adjustable for angles of pull and full rotational movement. The upper back rollers will relax the upper thoracic area and help increase circulation to the cervical region.

The Anatomotor Bed has Heat and Vibration that can be used in combination with traction and massage. This is mounted inside the table. Soothing warmth is directed up through the rollers creating comfort and relaxation, and a gentle vibration is felt through the back rollers, relaxing the patient and increasing circulation.

The Anatomotor Bed, has leg rollers that can be set in four different positions to relax muscles and increase circulation from the ankles to the buttocks. A venous-return technique may also be applied.

The degree of passive exercise to the knees and hips is governed by the position of the the leg rollers in the slotted bar. The simultaneous use of lumbar rollers with passive exercise will tend to rock the sacrum.
