Lumbar spine traction device


For diagnosing abnormalities of the spine and spinal cord using MRI, a device is needed to apply weight to the lumbar spine of the patient. This simulates the body weight pressing on the spine as if the patient were standing during the MRI scan, leading to a more accurate diagnosis. The lumbar spine traction device for MRI is specifically designed for use with MRI machines, specifically designed for easy use.
