Device relieves pressure on spinal disks to diminish back pain.

Do you suffer from low back pain? Did you know 80% of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lives?
I developed a herniated disc that was work related.
I visited a chiropractor who used a therapy machine to eliminate the bulge in my disc pressing on the nerve in one of my legs. I didn't want to end up in a wheelchair.
He paid One Hundred Thousand dollars for this and charged six thousand for 20 treatments. It was built on the premise of an ancient torture rack run by a computer.
I saw relief after the 12th treatment only to find I would need follow-ups which I couldn't afford.
I decided to build a portable model that operated on gravity, now I could use it whenever. I showed it to professionals who praised it as a beneficial device.
The right person who sees the potential could find it extremely lucrative.
The spinal disk relief device has a frame configured to carry the body weight of a patient. It is designed to be used vertically. The frame has three sides. The right and left side is at approximately a right angle to the back side when the device is ready for use.
It includes a belt and pads configured to provide under arm support to the patient. The belt is mounted to the frame by four straps. The back side comprises a lower bar configured to support shins of the patient to remove weight from the feet thus puts the patient in a dangling position.
The patient is supported by the apparatus to experience a reduction of compression on the spinal discs through the use of gravity thus alleviating back pain.
The three sides fold to make transportation and shipping possible. also it uses little room and does not depend on doorways to use.


Financial information

I am open to an outright sale, or possibly a license with something up front and royalties. It can be used by chiropractors, or in the home of people suffering from back pain from compression in the back.

Because of the simplicity of this device compared to computer run horizontally designed devices that cost thousands of dollars, It can be more affordable and therefore allow more people to live pain-free lives while using this device in the comfort of their home.
