Patent No. 6,007,568

Issued: December 28, 1999

Inventor: Eric Harrell and Robert Berry, Ithaca, NY


A table that corrects postures when looking at the anterior aspect of the person. 

The table will be mirror-imaging their postures including: Right and left head translations, right and left thoracic translations, and right and left lateral bending of the thorax. The table is made up of two movable sections (cervical and thoracic) and a stationary seat having a pelvic support. The head is placed in between two padded walls, and the cervical section is slid to one side and gets locked down, placing the head of the patient in the mirror-image translation. The thorax of the person is strapped down to the thoracic support, which is then slid to one side and locked in place, causing the thorax to be in mirror-image translation and/or lateral bending posture.
