Table Review: The AccuSpina

Posted on 04 Sep 01:03
One popular spinal decompression table is the AccuSpina made by North American Medical Corporation.  The AccuSpina spinal decompression treats both cervical and lumbar spinal decompression patients which is always a plus.  The AccuSpina motor is very smooth and almost imperceptible to patients.  This leads to patients being comfortable and relaxed, a major contributor to good decompression and effective results.  Although they claim to have several patents on their decompression head,no one has ever been able to explain the difference between their decompression head and any other decompression head on the market.  For this reason we don’t feel that their decompression is any different than any other table on the market. There are some cons to this table.  First and foremost is the cost.  While the days of paying $130,000 + for this table are thankfully long gone, the retail price is still considerable more than most tables on the market that actually do much more.  With what patients are actually willing to pay for spinal decompression nowadays this table would simply take way too long, if ever, to gain a significant return on your investment. Another common problem with this table is a faulty load cell.  Whenever AccuSpina table owners call us for a diagnosis on a malfunctioning AccuSpina table 90% of the time it is because of a faulty load cell.  Not only is this faulty load cell a common occurrence (every 1-2 years per table) it is a very dangerous malfunctioning as the table will keep pulling(even when a patient is on it) and nothing will stop it unless it’s unplugged and the battery back up is turned off.  This can lead to serious consequences for a patient, ultimately leading to serious consequences for the clinic. The final concern we have is that the AccuSpina table like other tables such as the DRX9000, SpineMed and others only allows a doctor to treat patients in a supine position.  While this may help a good percentage of patients, younger patients with true disc herniations will many times respond better when placed on their stomach and into an extended position.  For that reason we would typically not recommend a table that has only the ability to treat a patient in the supine position. While North American Medical is still one of the only spinal decompression makers in business, prices for supplies are still on the expensive side.  Fixing these tables is still very costly.  And it takes a professional and $2000.00 + to move one of these machines.
