Head Retention Strap for Cervical Traction Device

Last winter my wife slipped on the ice and messed up her neck/shoulder. She has found a great Physical Therapist at Therapeutic Associates in Selah, WA and on one of her visits they put a clean pillow case over her head so that the strap on the device wouldn’t touch her. Sorry to say they didn’t take a photo but she did ask why they weren’t using easy to clean straps.

Measurements were taken and prototypes made. Remeasure and another round of prototypes and then they took her off that machine and on to a Saunders Cervical Traction Device. Another hard to clean strap there so we designed one using easy to clean BioThane material that the staff and patients seem to like.

This strap can be cleaned using disinfectants already on hand and in this era of COVID-19 that is quite important.
