A New Device for Spinal Problem Treatment at BU

The Physiotherapy Clinic of the Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences at Bethlehem University announced last week that it has acquired a new device that will be used to treat Spinal Cord problems.

The new DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Device will be used both for the training of our students and for treating people from the community. 

This Non-surgical spinal decompression treatment for back pain has been designed to aid healthcare providers in their efforts in treating low back (lumbar) pain. Treatments using this device provide relief to patients suffering from chronic back pain or neck pain.

A special opening ceremony was organized at the clinic attended by a number of hospital directors and representatives from other universities and medical centers.

The device was donated by the Papal Foundation and was purchased from Excite Medical Company in Palestine.  The director of the company gave a presentation about the new device listing its major features.

In her opening remarks, Ms. Mariam Awad, Dean of Nursing welcomed the guests and expressed gratitude to the Papal Foundation for their generous donation that enabled the University to purchase this device.
