Prof. Samo K. Fokter, MD, specialist in orthopaedics, Chairman of the Council of Experts for Orthopaedics of the Slovenian Medical Association:
"The method of dynamic traction with the GammaSwing device combines the positive experience of the classic extension therapy with the innovative approach of controlled swinging in a floating position of the body. It is based on the relevant physiological principles, so we can hope that further prospective studies will confirm its usefulness for certain patients with lower back pain. Recently, scientific literature has even published reports of positive effects of intermittent and continuous traction on changes due to the wear and tear (osteoarthritis) of the knee joint cartilage."
Lepa Veljanovič, MD, specialist in physical and rehabilitation medicine, Terme & Wellness LifeClass, Portorož:
"In our clinics, we regularly meet people with back problems who mostly complain about pain and tense muscles. We effectively alleviate these problems with complex physiotherapy. A special role in this treatment is played by tractions: horizontal on the traction table and vertical. In addition to vertical traction and the stretching of the body and legs by using the body's own weight, the GamaSwing stretching device adds controlled swinging to the treatment, which effectively relaxes tense muscles and improves blood circulation in the relieved part of the back."
