the same thing on the lower latch, and snap in. And really, it needs to be snug, it’s
really really important to be nice and snug. And now she’s ready to create traction
by squeezing the bladders. Another great feature to the traccollar is the ability for the patient, not only to create traction for themselves
passively, but also to do some active
rehabilitative exercises. So Nicky, what I’d like you to do is I’d like
you to pump up the collar for me please. You can see the traccollar inflating
on both sides to where she’s feeling some distraction. And
then when I like to do, I’m gonna have her actually flex her head
to the left. You can do that three times. Good, and let’s go to the right three
times. And were simply doing is kind of a combination isometric, isotonic exercise where she’s
actively engaging the muscles against resistance. And this is a great way for patients to

not experiencing any arm symptoms right now, is that correct Nicky? It’s a great way for her
to do active exercise using the unit. You can now deflate. And we’ll also show you how easy it is for
Nicky to take this unit off. So literally, in a matter of seconds,
she’s gonna take her fingers, press on the snaps, and voila, it’s off.
