WHAT IS THE MECHANICAL UNLOADER AND HOW CAN IT HELP ME?
Our Mechanical Unloader is an unweighting/gravity reducing system designed to help patients in a wide variety of safe and controlled ways. This unique system utilizes a hydraulic pressure control mechanism to reduce the patient’s body weight to relieve the pain and discomfort associated with compressed vertebral discs, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, whiplash related injuries, and many other generalized back and neck problems.
Unlike many other mechanical traction systems, our Mechanical Unloader not only promotes pain relief through unloading, but also allows the patient to actively exercise to promote increased oxygenation and blood flow to injured tissues, promoting quicker recovery.
OTHER INJURIES OUR UNLOADER CAN HELP TREAT?
Neurological conditions (post-stroke, traumatic brain injury, gait ataxia, transverse myelitis, etc.)
- Post-surgical hip, knee, ankle, foot conditions
- Arthritic related conditions
- Balance disturbances
- Sports Injuries (allowing safe and earlier return to running)
