How to use the Saunders Cervical Traction Device?

Preparing the Saunders Traction Unit

  1. Place the Saunders Cervical Traction device on the floor or other firm surface. Check to make sure that the air hose is not being pinched by the bottom of the unit. Make sure you have enough room left to lie down in a comfortable position.
  2. Separate the neck wedges by rotating either of the black adjustment knobs so that your neck fits easily between the wedges. You can make additional adjustments after you lie down in the Saunders Traction device.
    Note: Do not over-rotate the adjustment knobs. This will result in stripping the internal gear.
  3. Loosen the adjustable head strap.
  4. Ensure the device is in the starting position - neck carriage should be touching the base. If not, rotate the gauge housing to the “Release” position.
  5. Set the traction angle prescribed by your health care provider by squeezing and sliding the tabs on both sides of the Angle Adjuster until it locks into place.
    Angle Adjuster Positions:
    • Top - 15 degrees
    • Middle - 20 degrees
    • Bottom - 25 degrees
    Note: If your health care provider did not specify the angle of pull, leave the Angle Adjuster in the top position.
  6. Place the pump in such a position that you can reach it during treatment.
  7. Set a timer for the length of treatment (not included).
You are now ready to use the Saunders Cervical Traction unit.

Applying Neck Traction with Saunders

  1. Lie down on your back, positioning your body so the neck wedges cradle the middle or narrowest part of your neck and your head rests comfortably on the head pad. The neck wedges should contact your neck midway (between the tips of your earlobes and the top of your shoulders).
  2. Turn either of the adjustment knobs until the wedges have moved firmly against both sides of the neck.
  3. As you settle into the Saunders Neck Traction device, the neck wedges may slightly rotate and self-adjust to the contour of your head and neck. You can rotate the wedges manually as needed for the most comfortable fit.
  4. Secure the head strap over your forehead, just above the browline. This strap should fit snugly.
  5. Apply traction using the pump.

  • Do not immerse the traction unit in water.
  • If unit is transferred between different users, all surfaces should be cleaned using standard cleaning techniques paying particular attention to the components that come in contact with the body.
