Saunders Cervical Traction Unit
The Saunders traction unit offers a solution to those looking to use traction therapy to relieve TMJ compression at home.
The Saunders cervical traction unit directs traction forces to the back of the head to help prevent compression of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ). These are the 2 joints that connect the lower jaw and the skull. The Saunders unit may be an appropriate alternative to surgical treatment of TMJ disorders such as compression.
The inclusion of an appropriate clevis enhances the cost effectiveness of the unit.
The Saunders unit is fully portable and is suitable for use at home, thus helping to improve patient compliance. It is a cost effective alternative to frequent clinical visits and use of a professional traction unit like the TX unit. It is also a useful alternative to those patients for whom social distancing is a priority.
