Antigravity Device for Intravertebral Rehabilitation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Low back pain is a serious health problem that affects a lot of people in productive age (López-Hernández in Análisis del Puesto de Trabajo de Policía para Investigar la Posible Etiología Laboral del Síndrome Doloroso Lumbar, Propuesta de Control. Universidad Instituto Politécnico Nacional, p. 13, 2010 [1]). In this research is presented an antigravity rehabilitation device, which is designed to allow the intervertebral decompression and the antigravity muscles rehabilitation of the lumbar area. In addition, the main components of the equipment such as the base, the frame and the iron where the patient lays down, is studied through a computational program (finite element method) that is used for developing a static-structural analysis. Finally, the automation of the equipment is shown since the execution times and movements used to decompression of the intervertebral discs and/or the rehabilitation of the spine (Asghar-Norasteh in Low Back Pain. InTech, pp. 33–34, 2012 [2]).
