Triton Traction is an innovative medical device used by physiotherapists to perform static and intermittent spinal traction on patients with cervical and lumbar spine conditions.
Traction therapy is used to open the intervertebral discs and foramen to relieve painful pressure and promote the flow of fluid from the epidural space into the disc space, promoting healing. The therapy is also used to straighten spinal curvature and stretch spinal musculature.
The patented Triton is a world first in this product category with its pivoting colour touch screen interface, EMG triggered therapy module, patient data card system which captures treatment details and Quick-Link multi-media card for optional clinical and user protocols, and anatomical and pathological library.
