The D.B.S. has successfully been used to treat juvenile, adolescent, and adult scoliosis. It attaches to the Vertetrac and combines the vertical traction with a horizontal pressure force at the apex of the curve. Unlike traditional braces used in the treatment of scoliosis, which are worn for 23-24 hours a day, the D.B.S. treatment is effective with only 30 minutes of wear time per day.
The Cervico can be worn in the patient's position of comfort, although mobility during treatment is encouraged to achieve a maximal healing effect through increased blood flow. With a set-up time of under a minute, the patient wastes no time getting started on their exercise program.
