“If you are a therapist or chiropractor, this is a great device to use for some of your clients with cervical issues, either in office or for continued therapy at home."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Milliken Medical to offer the Pronex® I Pneumatic Traction System to a wider consumer market. This user-friendly and innovative device creates an even distraction in the anterior and posterior cervical discs while supporting the natural cervical curve. It exerts force gently and evenly without aggravating the temporomandibular joint. Comfortable, portable and restraint-free, this simple traction device has no weights, cables, springs or levers and doesn't require any assembly.
Cradled on two soft cushions, the reclining patient's neck and head are supported by one cushion that specifically supports the occiput, while the other supports the upper trapezius. The patient controls the amount of traction applied by squeezing an inflator bulb to increase pressure, while a knob is used to gently release traction. The air-inflated bellows between the two cushions of the Pronex® provides up to twenty pounds of continuously adjustable traction which supports the natural cervical curve as the bellows expand, lifting the head upward. Lateral neck flexion of 15 degrees to 25 degrees can be achieved by employing chin tuck protocols.
This unique traction system is available in three different sizes to correctly fit each individual user's requirements, and the system includes a headstrap, flexion wedge, lightweight carrying case, instructional DVD and an operation manual. “We are proud to introduce the Pronex® I Pneumatic Traction System to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “If you are a therapist or chiropractor, this is a great device to use for some of your clients with cervical issues, either in office or for continued therapy at home. This traction system can help a wide variety of cervical spine problems, and everyone will find it simple to operate.”
