Section 1:
1.1
Introduction
Introduction to the MTD 4000
Thank you for purchasing the MTD 4000 (Mettler Traction Decompression) system from Mettler Electronics
Corp. The microprocessor controlled MTD 4000 provides cervical or lumbar traction by exerting therapeutic
pulling forces on the patient's body with enhanced reliability and ease of use.
The MTD 4000 system is an easy to use device that offers static, intermittent, and cyclic traction with user
definable hold, rest, and treatment times. It gently pulls the cervical spine or lumbar spine in opposite
directions to draw the soft tissue around the cervical or lumbar joints and separate the distance between
bone sections of the vertebra.
The MTD 4000 may be used to help relieve peripheral radiation/sciatica and pain associated with: herniated
discs, spinal root impingement, bulging discs, hypomobility, protruding discs, degenerative disc disease,
degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, posterior facet syndrome, compression fractures, acute facet
problems, radicular pain, discogenic pain and prolapsed discs.
Some of the features of the MTD 4000 are:
 Easy to use
 Active displays show all treatment parameters and progress.
 Multiple sensors and safety controls
 High strength traction rope
 Smooth, quiet operation
 Fits almost any existing table platform
 Clinician can save up to ten treatment setups
 Adjustable Hold/Rest times
 Continuous and Intermittent traction with multiple speed selection
 Two year limited warranty

Section 3 — Indications, Safety
Concerns, Contraindications and
Precautions
3.1
Indications
The MTD 4000 traction device provides traction and mobilization of skeletal structures and skeletal muscles.
The MTD 4000 may be used to relieve peripheral radiation/sciatica and pain associated with:
 Protruding discs
 Bulging discs
 Herniated discs
 Degenerative disc disease
 Posterior facet syndrome
 Acute facet problems
 Radicular pain
 Prolapsed discs
 Spinal root impingement
 Hypomobility
 Degenerative joint disease
 Facet syndrome
 Compressions fractures
 Joint pain
 Discogenic pain
The MTD 4000 achieves these effects through decompression of intervertebral discs, that is, unloading due
to distraction and positioning.
3.2
Safety Concerns
Be cautious of the following when setting up or using the MTD 4000:
Read this operation manual carefully before treatment.
Please contact Mettler Electronics Corp. if this operation manual is incomplete.
If the MTD 4000 functions or operates abnormally, please contact Mettler Electronics Corp. or
your distributor for service.
Clinicians should instruct their patients to power off device by pressing the patient safety switch,
if they experience any discomfort.
The MTD 4000 may be susceptible to interference originating from shortwave or microwave
diathermy devices operating in close proximity to it. Avoid operating the MTD 4000 adjacent to
and simultaneously with operating shortwave or microwave devices.
When a traction session is completed, clean the harness, table and chair, which came in direct
contact with patient’s skin according to the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions.
Avoid use of the MTD 4000 in unclean environments.
When the MTD 4000 is in use, make certain to maintain good ventilation around the unit to avoid
heat buildup. Avoid use of this device on soft or uneven surfaces since that may potentially block
the ventilation holes.
When you are not using this device, place it in the Standby mode to save power.
Avoid spilling liquids into the unit. This may damage the device or harm the patient.
Avoid using this device in conjunction with other equipment on the same patient.
Power off and remove power cord before cleaning the MTD 4000.
11
Mettler Electronics Corp. — Rev.M_11/19/14
Do not store in direct sunlight.
Warning: The MTD 4000 may be susceptible to interference originating from shortwave
diathermy units operating in close proximity to it. Avoid operating the MTD 4000 adjacent to and
simultaneously with operating shortwave devices.
Please use device in a dry environment. Water, steam, and other liquids will have significant
deleterious effects on the electronic components.
When using an extension cord with this device, do not use the same extension cord with other
devices simultaneously to prevent surges, shorts, and possible electrically-caused fires.
Please do not open the MTD 4000. Mettler Electronics reserves the right to repair and service
only unopened devices.

Electromagnetic environment guidance
Portable and mobile RF communications
equipment should be used no closer to
any part of the MTD 4000, including
cables, than the recommended
separation distance calculated from the
equation applicable to the frequency of
the transmitter.
Recommended separation distance
d = 1.2√P
d = 1.2√P 80MHz to 800 MHz
d = 2.3√P 800MHz to 2.5 GHz
where P is the maximum output power
rating of the transmitter in watts (W)
according to the transmitter manufacturer
and d is the recommended separation
distance in meters (m).
Field strengths from fixed RF
transmitters, as determined by an
electromagnetic site survey, a should be
less than the compliance level in each
frequency range.b
Interference may occur in the vicinity of
equipment marked with the following
symbol:
NOTE 1 At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
NOTE 2 These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption
and reflection from structures, objects and people.
a
Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land mobile radios,
amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the
electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If the measured
field strength in the location in which the MTD 4000 is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the MTD 4000
should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such
as reorienting or relocating the MTD 4000.
b
Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.

Recommended separation distances between portable and mobile RF
communications equipment and the MTD 4000
The MTD 4000 is intended for use in an electromagnetic environment in which radiated
RF disturbances are controlled. The customer or the user of the MTD 4000 can help
prevent electromagnetic interference by maintaining a minimum distance between
portable and mobile RF communications equipment (transmitters) and the MTD 4000 as
recommended below, according to the maximum output power of the communications
equipment.

Section 7—Maintenance and
Troubleshooting
7.1
Cleaning the MTD 4000
1. The MTD 4000 can be wiped off with a damp cloth. The power cord should be disconnected from the
unit before this is done. In the case of stubborn dirt a gentle household cleaner can be sprayed on the
cloth and then wiped on the unit. If this method is used, remove any cleaner residue with a damp cloth.
Do not spray cleaner onto the unit.
2. Do not use any cleaning agents containing high contents of phenol derivates, alcohol, compounds of
chlorine or peracetic acid. It is recommended to use aldehyde-based disinfectants. The device is not
suited for heat sterilization or for sterilization with gases.
3. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning all harnesses and treatment table surfaces after use
on each patient.
7.2
Routine Maintenance
1. To assure accurate performance of the MTD 4000, calibration should be performed on an annual basis
by a qualified biomedical technician.
2. Standard medical electrical safety checks should be performed annually by qualified biomedical
engineers or technicians trained to perform these procedures.
3. Inspect the traction rope for wear. It should be replaced if signs of wear are noticed.
4. The manual calibration indicated in the instruction manual should be performed routinely.
5. Annually, the auto-calibration should be performed by a qualified biomedical technician.
6. Replace the traction rope every two years. This service should be performed by a qualified biomedical
technician.
