  • Publication number: 20080167684
    Abstract: A treatment table with a calf/foot assembly includes an upper body support section adapted to support a patient's body, attached to a system support; and a calf/foot assembly pivotally attached to a lower part of the upper body support section, the calf/foot assembly including a calf/foot support, a linear movement mechanism adapted to move the calf/foot support linearly, and a first rotational mechanism adapted to cause a first transverse movement of the calf/foot support transverse to the longitudinal axis of the upper body support section. The treatment table further includes a second rotational mechanism adapted to cause a second transverse movement of the calf/foot support transverse to the longitudinal axis and the first transverse movement. The method of using the treatment table to applying traction to the spine of a patient at varying angles is provided.

  • Patent number: 6923825
    Abstract: A foot-and-calf support and treatment table for extension, flexion, traction, distraction and lateral movement of the spine and lower body of a patient includes a base adapted to rest upon a floor, and a system support assembly having an upper end and a lower end integrally secured to the base, the support assembly including a pivot axis proximal to upper end. The treatment table also includes a selectable reciprocal extension element having an upper end and a lower end, one end pivotally attached to the system support assembly, the selectable extension elements providing reciprocal movement of the one end relative to an opposite end. The table further includes a rigid support platform having an upper end and a lower end, the platform pivotally secured to the pivot axis of the support assembly and, further, pivotally secured to the one end of the selectable extension element to provide a resultant rotational motion of the support platform.

  • Patent number: 5922011
    Abstract: A multi-function chiropractic treatment table for effecting extension, flexion, lateral flexion and distraction of the spine of a patient. The table includes a weighted platform adapted to rest upon a floor, and telescoping vertical elevation units having upper and a lower ends, each upper end secured to a transverse horizontal pivot axis, the lower end integrally secured to the weighted platform. The table further includes a rigid elongate support frame having an upper part and a lower part, the support frame secured to the horizontal pivot axis of the elevation units, the upper part defining a plane tilted convexly relative to a plane defined by the lower part and an assembly means for selectably rotating the rigid support frame upon the transverse horizontal pivot axis.

  • Patent number: 4915101
    Abstract: A rotatable treatment table for effecting extensions and flexions of the spine. The treatment table includes a weighted platform adapted to rest upon a floor. Rigid support elements having upper and lower ends are provided. Further provided is an extensible elevation member having a lower and an upper end, the lower end secured to the platform, in which the rotational movement of the upper end of the extensible elevation member relative to the lower end occurs. Yet further provided is a rectangular supportive frame proportioned to extend beyond the length of the body of a patient. The rigid support is pivotally secured near its center of gravity to the upper end of the rigid elevation member. Further, it is pivotally secured to the upper end of the extensible elevation member. The pivotal securements permit the support frame to define a selectable curved path relative to the platform.
