Description

SPECIFICATION

BACKACHE TREATMENT CHAIR TECHNICAL FIELD

The present invention relates to a treatment chair for providing treatment of patients suffering from backache. PRIOR ART

The basic reason of backaches is the spinal cord disorders. In order to provide treatment to this disease also called herniated disc, a method called drawing waist is used. In order to realize the waist drawing treatment, in hospitals, the patient is laid on a horizontal or inclined table in physical treatment units. Afterwards, the patient is drawn through belts connected to the waist and chest thereof, and the clearance between the vertebra of the patient is increased, and the hernia is placed to the own location thereof. This method can only be applied in hospitals with the accompanying of therapists. In the application with reference US4896659, a treatment tool is disclosed where the patient is suspended by means of a hanger passed from the waist of the patient, and the clearance between the vertebras of the patient is tried to be increased.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a treatment chair, for eliminating the above mentioned disadvantages and for bringing new advantages to the related technical field.

The main object of the present invention is to provide a treatment chair for treating of backaches resulting from spinal cord.

In order to realize all of the abovementioned objects and the objects which are to be deducted from the detailed description below, the present invention is a treatment chair for the treatment of backache. Accordingly, the present invention is characterized by comprising at least one back support section whereon the patient leans back, at least two carrier arms extending outwardly in the horizontal plane from said back support section and passing through the arm pits of the patient, at least one seat whereon the patient can sit at the vicinity ¾f the back support section and providing the patient to be suspended on said carrier arms by means of moving downwardly, and at least one foot support section whereon the patient presses at the vicinity of said seat and pushing the knees of the patient towards the body thereof by means of moving upwardly.

In a preferred embodiment of the subject matter invention, there is at least one seat motor connected to the seat in order to provide upward downward movement of the seat.

In another preferred embodiment of the subject matter invention, there is at least one foot support motor in order to provide upward downward movement of the foot support.

In another preferred embodiment of the subject matter invention, there is at least one control unit connected to said seat motor and said foot support motor. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE FIGURES

In Figure 1 and 2, the representative views of the subject matter treatment chair are given. REFERENCE NUMBERS

THE DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

In this detailed description, the subject matter treatment chair is explained with references to examples without forming any restrictive effect only in order to make the subject more understandable. As can be seen in Figure 1 and 2, the subject matter treatment chair comprises a seat (30), a back support section (10) and a foot support (40). Said back support section (10) is fixed to the floor. There are at least two carrier arms (20) extending outwardly in the horizontal plane through the back support section (10). The height of the seat (30) provided in the vicinity of the back support section (10) can be changed. In order to change the height of the seat (30), there are at least one seat motor (31) and at least one control unit (50) connected to the seat (30). When the patient sits on the seat, said carrier arms (20) remain at the arm pits of the patient. Said foot support (40) is positioned at the vicinity of the seat (30). The height of the foot support (40) is adjustable. There is at least one foot support motor (41) in order to adjust the height of the foot support (40). Moreover, said foot support motor (41 ) is connected to said control unit (50). While the patient sits on the seat, the foot support (40) remains under the feet of the patient. During the use of the subject matter treatment chair, first of all, the patient sits on the seat (30) such that the carrier arms (20) correspond to the arm pits, and leans against the back support section (10). Meanwhile, the patient presses on the foot support (40) by means of his/her feet. Afterwards, command is given to the seat motor (31) and to the foot support motor (41 ) by means of the control unit (50), and the seat (30) is lowered, and thereby the foot support (40) is raised. As the seat (30) is lowered, the patient is suspended on the carrier arms (20) through the arm pits thereof. Meanwhile, the upward movement of the foot support (40) provides the upward movement of the knees of the patient such that the knees approach to the body of the patient. By means of joining these two movements, the clearance between the vertebra of the patient is increased by means of the own weight of the patient, and the hernia is placed to the correct location thereof. After the patient remains in this position sufficiently, and command is given to the seat motor (31 ) and to the foot support motor (41) by means of the control unit (50), and thereby the seat (30) and the foot support (40) return to the beginning position thereof. Thus, the patient can comfortably get up from the treatment chair.

Thanks to said embodiments, the patient can use the treatment chair in a stand-alone manner when required. Moreover, thanks to its simple and modular structure, the treatment chair can be easily carried and it can be used in any desired location. The protection scope of the present invention is set forth in the annexed Claims and cannot be restricted to the illustrative disclosures given above, under the detailed description. It is because a person skilled in the relevant art can obviously produce similar embodiments under the light of the foregoing disclosures, without departing from the main principles of the present invention.
