The Vertetrac was developed based on a new breakthrough concept to bring relief to people suffering from lumbar spine related injuries and disorders, including herniated discs, lower back, and Sciatica. The device is a patented ambulatory traction system offering an ambulatory treatment method as an alternative to surgery, body braces, or traction bed treatments.
What really sets Vertetrac apart from other lumbar spine treatments is its ability to enable traction in three dimensions (see diagram below). In effect, Vertetrac combines conservative traction with a horizontal force. This unique combination is what enables simultaneous 3D treatment with asymmetrical traction options.
Vertetrac has many other important advantages. First, treatment sessions are significantly shorter and can be completed with minimal interruption of the patient's daily routine (sessions last less than 30 minutes per day). Secondly, patients wearing the device have the freedom to move and perform light activities during treatment, including walking, standing, or sitting. Another advantage is Vertetrac's compact size. Since it is a small and portable unit, the Vertetrac does not take up valuable clinic space. Some users with chronic back problems even carry a unit with them while traveling to avoid missing treatment sessions. Finally, the Vertetrac is so easy to use, patients enduring long-term care can easily be taught to administer self-treatment from the comfort of their own home. Treatment and recovery, as a result, become more convenient and patients feel that they have more control over their lives.

The Vertetrac is the only unit that enables the patient to exercise on a treadmill and/or stepper during treatment.
The optional D.B.S. Scoliosis attachment can be attached to the Vertetrac to extend treatment possibilities.
