The physiotherapeutic corrective couch KVS provides axial extension of the patient’s spinal column. Reaction to the vertical weight component is used as the extension force. Specific features of the physical effect of the KVS couch are discussed. Safety modes providing maximum efficiency of treatment are suggested. High efficiency of treatment is due to spinal column extension with intervertebral disk height increase, improved body mobility, and considerable reduction of pain syndrome.
