C TRAC Carpal Tunnel System

C TRAC | CTS Device – Medium


C-TRAC is a pneumatic and dynamic hand traction device designed to increase the area of the carpal tunnel through a progressive stretching program. When the device is on the hand and the air bladder is inflated and a ‘three-point’ action force is exerted on the hand. This provides a stretching force along the transverse carpal ligament. X-rays taken with and without the C-TRAC in place showed an increase in the distance between the trapezium and the hook of hamate and between the scaphoid and pisiform bones up to 3 mm [62].

No NSAIDs, splints or injections were used while patients used the C-TRAC device. At the 4-week follow-up, there were no reported side effects or complications in all patients. Results demonstrate a reduction in symptoms at both 4 and 7 months of follow-up. At the 7-month follow-up, eight of the 18 patients had no symptom recurrence, and ten had minor symptom recurrence. A total of 12 of the 18 patients reported the need to use the device an average of once every 2 months to manage their symptoms.
