What is the traction force when using Mastercare?
The traction force is measured with the following formula:
Ftraction = W x sin a
In this formula W stands for the weight of the patient and a stands for the angle of the table with the horizontal plane.
As the table is during the study maximum 15° inverted, we can easily determine the maximal traction force:
Ftraction = W x sin 15°
Ftraction = W x 0,26
Thus, using a 15° inclination:
Maximal traction force = 26 % of the bodyweight
Why do you have a moving backrest?
Why have you limited the inversion to 30 degrees?
As well, if the Mastercare® Back-A-Traction® is placed on the workplace they could not recommend the table where there’s a risk to get stuck upside down. Therefore, we limited the inclination for both health and safety reason.
One of the effects you strive to attain with the unloading (decompression) is to increase the circulation in the musculature. If you hang upside down the muscles will contract and the effect will not occur.
Can I allow my employees to use the Mastercare® Back-A-Traction® by themselves?
I have an old Mastercare® Back-A-Traction®. Are there spare-parts available?
Yes, we have spare-parts for the most versions of Mastercare® Back-A-Traction® that has been manufactured throughout the years.
Why are the buttons so hard to push down?
I don’t have space for it, what shall I do?
A good advice is to place it in the bedroom.
Mastercare is easy to fold for storage.
instead, which takes very little space when folded.
It’s also portable and great when travelling!
I just unpacked my Mastercare MINI and the back-rest is not “moving”... What do I do?
This bolt should then be located in the vertical slot situated directly above it. It should be aligned with the matching hole situated on the sliding frame beneath the backboard. There are four vertical slots on the sliding frame and this hole is situated at the top of the bottom slot.
