Mode of Operation

The MKS® Thorecta plus functions according to the 3-Point-Principle.
Front- and back piece straighten and hence relieve the vertebral column.
The wide thorax support limits the lateral flexion of the spine to further immobilize and relieve the vertebral column. The reclination straps straighten the vertebral column further and minimize rotation.
Focused compression between iliac crest and thorax relieves the lumbar vertebral column further.
