The cervical traction technique used by some of the world’s most advanced medical devices, including the Jawbone Up app, is the first step towards a safer cervical spine for people with cervical cancer.
Cervical traction technology was developed by the University of Texas in Austin to aid in cervical injury rehabilitation.
The technology uses electrodes attached to the cervical spine to move a small ball through a fluid-filled mesh.

The procedure involves inserting a thin plastic tube called a microsurgical instrument (MSI) through the cervix to stretch and compress the blood vessels, nerves and other tissues.
A small piece of plastic then passes through the device and into the cervical spinal fluid.
The procedure has proved controversial due to concerns that the device might cause more damage than it prevents, which is the case with cervical traction devices that have been used in clinical trials.CVS, a major U.S. pharmacy chain, announced this week it will start selling the Jawbones Up app in Canada.
It will also sell the cervical devices.
A spokesperson for CVS said it’s a safe and effective tool to treat pain in the neck.
The company has also announced that it will offer free shipping to anyone who has used the Jawboost app.
Cory Doctorow, a medical writer and journalist, and the co-founder of The New Inquiry, an online publication for the left-leaning blogosphere, has been vocal in his criticism of the Jawbits, which he calls “jawbones.”
He recently tweeted that they “cannot have a safe cervical spine” because of their technology.
The technology has been criticized as ineffective and harmful.
In a 2012 article for The New Yorker, Dr. Emily Blunt, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University at Buffalo, and Dr. Joseph Fagenson, a fellow at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, wrote that the technology “does not prevent cervical pain.”
