Maintenance And Troubleshooting for a Saunders Cervical Traction


You can clean all surfaces of your Saunders Cervical Traction device using a disinfectant or mild detergent. Do not immerse the device in the water. If you move it to different users, clean after every use all surfaces paying particular attention to the ones that come into contact with the body; we recommend using a new head strap.


Your Saunders Cervical Traction device should be placed in its protective case.


The Saunders Cervical Traction pump has a precise, sensitive gauge. The pump is specifically designed not to leak in the “HOLD” position. If the pipe is in the proper sitting position, but you notice a drop in the gauge reading in the “HOLD” setting, it’s probably because you’ve shifted or relaxed. If an event such as this takes place, return to the “PUMP” position and pump back to the required force, then return to “HOLD.”

The proper operation of the Saunders Cervical Traction device depends on the air system being practically leak-free. If the traction force isn’t maintained, there may be a leak somewhere within the system.

If the unit is leaking air, try the following:

  • Check the air hose connections at the cylinder and the pump and gently tighten as necessary. Do not over-tighten as the threads may strip.
  • Make sure that the unit has not slipped and gone to full excursion
  • Perform a POP test. With no one in the unit, pump up the pressure until the unit makes a loud pop (at about 50 lbs.,) then rotate the gauge to the release position, and proceed with your treatment.
