LOWER BACK PAIN RELIEF WITHOUT COMPROMISE
Back On Track Decompression Equipment
Dynamic, Tri-Planar, Ambulatory Traction Device
The Vertetrac, Meditrac’s lumbar ambulatory decompression system, is an innovative and cost-effective approach to the treatment of spinal injuries and disorders. Common indicators include lower back pain, scoliosis, sport injury, herniated discs, and sciatica.
Two characteristics integral to the Vertetrac allow it to outperform all other traditional lumbar traction methods:
First: its unique delivery of tri-planar decompression forces: vertical, horizontal, symmetrical and asymmetrical.
Second: its engineering and design allow for complete freedom of movement during treatment.
While wearing the Vertetrac traction unit, the patient is encouraged to partake in active rehabilitation in order to facilitate accelerated recovery.
Struggling to treat a patient who cannot tolerate restraints? Experiencing difficulty trying to treat a patient suffering from such acute pain that prolonged supine positioning is intolerable?
They will benefit from the ambulatory traction treatment that the Vertetrac equipment provides.
What is ambulatory traction?
Vertetrac is a revolutionary ambulatory traction device which combines dynamic rehabilitation with lower back decompression to provide pain relief.
The indications for its use include: lower back pain, sports injuries, scoliosis, herniated discs, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. Any type of spinal fusion or fixation, as well as spondylosis or spondylolisthesis are contraindicated.
How does the Vertetrac ambulatory traction device work?
Unlike other back traction equipment in its class, the Vertetrac does not employ body entrapment systems or immobilization. Vertetrac is a compact device which can produce a decompression force of up to 50% the patient’s body weight.
While traditional traction equipment delivers a vertical distraction, our ambulatory traction unit delivers a horizontal distraction force as well, thus modernizing and streamlining this classical treatment approach.
How does Lower Back Decompression promote spinal healing?
The ambulatory traction unit is fitted while the patient is standing, the spine placed in its natural lordotic position, ideal for maximum lower back decompression benefit.
Once the device is properly tightened and adjusted, the patient is encouraged to walk or participate in their typical dynamic rehab routine.
The increased blood flow and fluid transfer which are facilitated by the decompression are further aided by the active muscle contractions, the natural products of exercise.
This is the tenet of our Traction on the Move protocol, which is designed to promote active healing and pain relief in patients suffering from acute and chronic low back pain through ambulatory decompression.
Due to the inherently static nature of the other decompression equipment on the market, the Vertetrac holds the advantage in the treatment of the source of back pain by providing ambulatory traction.

ALTERNATIVE TO SURGERY
15-30 MINUTE TREATMENTS
DRUG FREE PAIN RELIEF
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
TRACTION ON THE MOVE
USE AT HOME
SPEED UP YOUR RECOVERY
- Only 30 minutes per treatment session
Treatment sessions are significantly shorter and can be completed with minimal interruption to the patient’s daily routine.
- Complete freedom of movement
Patients wearing the device have the freedom to move and perform light activities and physical exercise such as walking, standing, or sitting during treatment.
- Compact, portable, and easy to use
The Vertetrac is a small and unit which does not require valuable floor space in the clinic. Due to its portability, patients with chronic pain are easily able to carry a device with them while traveling to prevent interruption of their treatment care plan.
- Spinal Insurance reimbursable for clinic use and patient purchase (USA)
Patients who require long-term care can easily be taught to self-treat at home. This allows patients to regain control over their lives and well-being.
Noa, Disc Herniation
“After the third, fourth treatment I felt much better. The first time I came I couldn’t even stand for more than 5 minutes and after each treatment you get back home and you feel it, you can walk more, you feel more stretched out, the pain is less.”
Dr. Steve Horowitz, Disc Herniation
“This device saved me! I first bought the Cervico for me, not for my patients, and used it for 10 days in a row and the pain was gone. Now I use it on a regular basis, 2-3 times a week, and I feel great. It is much better than any other traction unit that I have had in my office for 20 years.”
Yaniv Zilberman, Neck Pain
“After a week of treatment with the Cervico device the pain reduced significantly. I’m sleeping very well at night and I’m feeling much better”
Dynamic Ambulatory 3D Traction
Disc disorders are accompanied by muscle spasm and reduced transfer of intra-discal fluid which accelerate disc degeneration. Research shows that uninterrupted fluid transfer is essential for normal disc biomechanics, which necessitates spinal movement.
Meditrac’s Traction on the Move treatment protocol is founded on this principle. During the course of treatment, traction decreases intra-discal pressure on the nerve root and dural sac to reduce pain, while mobility increases overall circulation to facilitate healing.
Patient: 47-year-old female with acute low back pain, severe sciatica with left side radiation, and neurological symptoms. Imaging displayed severe left neural foraminal herniation of the disc (red arrow above) causing stenosis with mild cord pressure.
Plan of Care: Two weeks of daily treatment sessions with the Vertetrac, followed by 2 months of treatments every other day.
Results: Patient has no further complaints of pain, sciatica, or neurological symptoms. The MRI shows no herniation of the disc, with only a mild residual edema of the left root. No apparent spinal cord pressure.
Indications for use:
- All lumbar disc disorders of primary and secondary origin
- Lumbar back disorders caused by malalignment of the apophyseal joints.
- Lumbar back disorders caused by Spondyloarthrosis
- Sports injury
- Spinal Stenosis due to disc herniation
- Idiopathic Scoliosis (juvenile, adolescent or adult)
Contra-Indications for use:
- Cauda Equina Syndrome
- Pott’s Disease and all infective or inflammatory diseases of the vertebrae
- Cardiac or circulatory disease and severe respiratory problems
- Pregnancy after the fourth month
- Contusions and stretching injuries of the lower back (damage of muscles, tendons, vessels, and nerves can be aggravated by traction)
- Post-operative patients within 3 months of back surgery
- Vertebral fracture within 6 months of initial injury
- Fusion with internal fixation
