Anatomotor Traction Therapy
The Anatometer is designed for soft-tissue massage, intermittent and constant traction, heat, and vibration. The Anatomotor has a moving top on which the patient glides back and forth just under the normal respiration rate. Two sets of adjustable-height massage rollers straddle the spine and rhythmically loosen taut muscles. This deep-kneading massage effectively prepares the patient for traction which actually separates the spinal vertebrae. Traction is created as the gliding top pulls against the controlled resistance of the traction unit. Traction force is regulated between 0 to 200 pounds and can be applied in several different forms from cervical to full lumbar-sacral traction.
