Physical manipulation or mobilisation has long been accepted by physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors to be the primary treatment for mechanical disorders of the spine.
Although it is possible to achieve a degree of movement to the spinal column as a whole through exercise and physical therapy, generating movement manually between individual vertebral segments is difficult and very time consuming.

Because the handset uses compressed air to move the feet there is no predetermined machine cycle, the feet will only push at the pressure level that has been selected by the operator and will stop moving if they meet any resistance beyond this, the operator ultimately controls the treatment regardless of what settings have been selected, because the handset cannot exert force unless the operator applies an equal force.
The treatment has a wide range of parameters allowing the operator to mobilise the spine slowly and progressively with the air pressure ramping up and down between strokes in the Progressive mode, or to use rapid hammer like strokes in the Rapid mode to stimulate muscular responses. In the Momentary mode single rapid strokes can be utilised with variable delay periods to allow muscular responses to subside before the next stroke.
