Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9519744A1] A device for passive-motion treatment of the human body comprises: a body support platform (12) having a foot end and a head end and including a base section (14) and a back support section (16) which is movable relative to the base section (14) along a longitudinal axis (L) extending between the foot end and the head end of the body support platform (12). Means (15) may be provided for locking the lower body portion of a patient to the base section (14) of the body support platform (12) with the patient lying on the body support platform with his back resting on the back support (16), and for applying traction to the patient's spine under the force of gravity. The back support section (16) or at least one subsection (17-21) thereof is resiliently movable relative to the base section (14) and connected with a vibrator (23-29) by which the subsection is caused to vibrate in one or more directions.
