The top section of the Body Bender Machine is stationary, with the lower section moving up to a 45 degree angle and down to a 30 degree angle. The patient lies supine on the table, with buttocks above the hinge of the two sections.
The Body Bender stretches hip flexors, trunk, (anterior and posterior), and will help to prevent kidney problems by increasing circulation. A variable speed control mechanism allows the therapist a selection in the number of revolutions the patient will experience per minute. The speed can be reduced to as low as one RPM.
