Mississippi Patent of the Month – April 2024

VerteCore Technologies, LLC has introduced a game-changing solution for spinal decompression with its innovative portable device. Traditional methods of spinal traction and decompression have often been bulky, limited to specific body types, and required users to remain in a stationary position. However, VerteCore’s invention addresses these limitations by offering a portable, adjustable, and user-friendly solution.

The device consists of an upper thoracic belt and a lower lumbar belt, both made of stretchable material for maximum comfort and flexibility. These belts are easily adjustable to fit the user’s chest and waist, ensuring a proper and secure fit. Attached to these belts are one or more rods, along with a traction assembly capable of extending these rods bi-directionally.

What sets VerteCore’s device apart is its versatility and ease of use. Users can wear the device while carrying out their daily activities, thanks to its portable design. Whether standing, sitting, or lying down, the device provides therapeutic relief by applying traction forces to the spine, promoting spinal disc decompression.

The traction assembly, equipped with an actuator mechanism and quick release mechanism, allows users to adjust the distance between the upper and lower belts with ease. This facilitates spinal decompression from the upper thoracic region to the lower lumbar region, addressing a wide range of spinal disorders such as radiculopathy and myelopathy.

The device’s ability to maintain the rods in an activated position for a customizable time period ensures optimal therapeutic benefit for the user. Once the desired duration of use is completed, the quick release mechanism allows for easy retraction of the rods to a neutral position.

VerteCore’s portable spinal decompression device represents a significant advancement in the field of therapeutic decompression. By combining portability, adjustability, and user-friendly features, this invention offers hope to individuals suffering from back pain and spinal disorders, allowing them to lead more active and pain-free lives.
