Aquatizer [QZ-240]

Advanced design concepts have led the way to a new generation of dry hydro massage beds.
The “Aquatizer QZ series” provided by Minato Medical Science who have always provided advanced devices with original design concepts in the dry hydro jet massage bed field. Using these results and technology, we have created the new dry hydro jet massage bed. This is the "QZ-240", in which advanced functions, such as 4 nozzles, foot airbags and an automatic height setting function, have been added to a futuristic design. You can find here a dry hydro jet massage bed with the most highly evolved sense of treatment, comfort and operability.

New sense of treatment with the 4 nozzle (wide jet)
This has created a sense of treatment not previously found in 4 base nozzles. By switching the number of nozzles depending on the massaged area and pattern, we provide massage with a high degree of variation.

Holds the feet softly with an airbag
The foot airbag prevents you from opening your legs and holds the legs in the optimal position. The jet provides precise stimulation from your calves to your thighs.

The sensors automatically detect your height
Equipped with sensor to determine the position of your head. It measures your height and automatically sets the optimal massage position. There is no need to separately set the height as before and this greatly reduces the workload of the staff.

All-in-one handrail makes it easy to get on and off
The body and all-in-one handrail located from the head to feet make it easy to get on and off the bed. Further, its smooth streamlined shape give it a really futuristic design.

Tractizer [TC-C1] (Available only for Japan at the moment)

The original tilting mechanism brings about a new style in cervical traction force treatment
With the TractizerTC-C1, contrary to previous cervical traction force unit, by controlling the seat tilting angle, a traction force position suitable for the treatment area can be provided. In addition, the high reproducibility of the traction force position encourages continuous treatment benefits.

With the tilting function, traction force can be performed at an angle suited to the treatment area
In cervical traction force treatment, the part on which the traction force operates changes according to the traction force angle (table below). With the previous traction force unit, the structure was such that the traction force angle was changed by contracting and extending the upper arm. For this reason, as traction force is applied, the upper body leans forward and the traction force angle tends to become shallower than the set angle, and it becomes difficult to maintain a suitable traction force angle.
With the TractizerTC-C1, the adoption of the tilting function has resolved this issue. By controlling the slant of the seat, traction force can be performed at an angle suited to the treatment area.

The traction force position can be set simply from the operating panel
The traction force position settings can all be set from the operating panel. The seat can be automatically tilted by selecting an angle in accordance with the treatment area in 7 stages from 10° to 40°. There is no need to adjust the arm for each patient individually like before and this reduces the work of the staff.
Using the “wide traction force function”, multiple traction force angles can be set during 1 treatment.

traction force treatment is possible in a relaxed posture

During Tractizer TC-C1 treatment, the patient just lies deeply in the chair. The patient can relax while maintaining a stable treatment posture.
Through stability in the treatment posture and tilting, the reproducibility of the treatment conditions has been increased and this is very helpful for continuous treatment.

Just push the angle setting button

The traction force position can be set in 7 stages between 10° to 40°.
Upper position (10° to 15°), middle position (15° to 30°), lower position (30° to 40°)
cervical treatment-compatible. The traction force position setting can be operated by just pressing a button. The tilting mechanism means that the traction force angle has a high level of reproducibility.

Super Track [ST-2L]

Addition of New Functions to “Super Trac ST-1L”
Realizing high functionality that is kind to people, through consideration for patients and a large-scale reduction in the effort required by medical staff.
Traction while simply sitting on the chair.
It is difficult for patients with lumbar pain to adopt the dorsal position...
Can’t the setting of the equipment be made more simple?
Our response to the various feedback we received from our customers is the “Super Trac ST-2L” that can provide traction treatment while the patient sits in the seat.
Automatically sets the ideal traction treatment position, to realize efficient treatment.
Further, there are only 2 settings required before starting treatment.
The “Super Trac ST-2L” is a more highly evolved traction device for our patients and staff.

Traction treatment method and position during traction

Traction treatment includes lumbar traction (pelvic traction) and cervical traction. The benefits promised by this method of treatment include improving muscle spasms in the traction area, massage benefits through intermittent traction and, by assisting in inter-vertrebal opening, lowering impact on nerve compression. With lumbar traction, it is desirable, at the time of treatment, to relax the hip and buttock muscles, and perform traction in an anteflexion posture that sufficiently bends the hip joint and knee joint. With “Super Trac ST-2L”, a seat shape has been adopted in which the posture appropriate for the treatment can be easily obtained and innovations have taken place to ensure that traction treatment can be performed efficiently.

Ideal traction angle by using the automatic slide Ottoman
Through further scientific study of posture, we have achieved an even better traction posture. By automatically sliding the Ottoman, it is possible to treat patients of various height differences in a stable manner. Further, the Ottoman can be extended and retracted as you desire with just one touch.

Leg hold function for maintaining a stable posture
Increased support for the feeling of being held, wrapping your legs in the power of soft air. By controlling with pressure sensors, it is possible to hold it at a fixed pressure regardless of the thickness of the legs, and adjust the hold strength in 3 stages. This promises relaxation benefits linked to the traction operation.

Lumbar mat focusing on the feeling of being held
The lumbar mat has adopted a deep form that gives the impression of wrapping your pelvis. Further, a heater is built in to the lumbar mat to provide a comfortable level of treatment.
