There are currently five Posture Pump cervical traction devices in the product line ranging from the lower cost models that only focus on one area, to the models 4100 and 6100 which will focus on both the neck and lower back simultaneously. All models are made in the USA and are very lightweight and portable. Here is a list of what they offer.
Cervical Disc Hydrator® (Model 1000)
The Cervical Disc Hyrator (Model 1000) is the base model. If it’s neck pains your suffering from, this may be all you need in a Posture Pump. The up and down motion of the device helps to promote lubrication of the joints and separate the compressed regions of your vertebrae.
Elliptical Back Rocker™ Model 2000
The Elliptical Back Rocker (Model 2000) is geared towards stretching and separating the joints in your lower back. It features two air cells that slowly inflate to separate your discs and its base is designed to let you rock back and forth. This helps with comfort and to adjust yourself while using it. They also say to you use this feature to help strengthen your abdominal muscles. Keeping your mid section strong has a huge impact on how hard your back muscles have to work. If its your lower back that’s bothering you, this device is more than worth a try.
Penta Vec™ (Model 2500)
The Penta Vec model uses a very similar approach as the Elliptical Back Rocker with the main difference being the ability to position the legs and feet easier. Using five simultaneous force vectors, the lumbar spine is expanded and lifted while the pelvis is rotated up and away. This exercise is meant to cease the coiling of the lower discs in your back.
Deluxe Full Spine Posture Pump® Model 4100
The Full Spine Posture Pump is a combination of the other models, offering both back and neck decompression exercises in one device. Both the Cervical Disc Hydrator and the Elliptical Back Rocker are attached by a pad which will stretch out to fit your body while also making it easier to carry around by allowing it to fold up and lock together. If your suffering from both neck and back pain or discomfort, this is the one you want.
Disc Hydrator® Model 6100 (Fully Automated)
The new Disc Hydrator 6100 is the premier model. It is essentially the same device as the Full Spine Posture Pump but with full automation. Six different built-in programs ranging from 15 – 30 minutes allow you to experience the disc decompression and hydration exercises in the easiest way possible. The air cells will inflate and deflate on their own according to the program you have selected and all you have to do is relax and enjoy the benefits.
