Pronex Cervical Traction Device
Easy to use cervical traction treatment patients can take in the comfort of their home.
Pronex helps patients successfully manage their cervical condition by relieving pain, reducing muscle spasm and decompressing spinal structures.
Pronex is the only traction device that uses a bellows technology to provide a gentle, even distraction of the cervical spine. The Pronex design supports the natural curve of the cervical spine and provides two unique design advantages: inline and counter traction. This combination creates an even distraction in the anterior and posterior cervical discs providing a better overall treatment.
Additionally, because traction force is created by pressure applied to the occiput and the trapezius muscles, there is no strain on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
Support and versatility:
Pronex cradles the head and neck on two soft foam cushions. One cushion supports the back of the head and the other rests against the top of the shoulders. An air-inflated bellows between the foam provides up to 35 lb. of continuously adjustable traction. As the bellows expands, the patient's head moves upward and supports the cervical curve, maintaining an even force that creates space between the cervical vertebrae. Patients have total control over the amount of traction applied. Squeezing the single-hand inflator bulb increases the pressure; a release knob gently reduces it. While Pronex offers the advantage of inline traction, lateral neck flexion of 15 and 22 degrees can also be obtained by utilizing the flexion wedge. Provides up to 35 lbs of continuously adjustable traction.
User-friendly and without restraints:
Pronex is portable, comfortable and convenient. There is no assembly, no weights, no cables, no springs or levers. It is also restraint free. All of these features combine to encourage regular use by the patient at home, helping to break the chronic pain cycle.
Pronex offers advantages over other, more traditional cervical traction options including over-the-door traction, rigid pneumatic traction devices and manual manipulation.
