Scary Looking Vertical Traction Kit For Neck Pain

This device certainly isn't new, but it's one of those obscure, scary looking medical contraptions that make you feel uncomfortable just looking at it.

The prescription kit is intended to treat neck disorders by stretching the muscles and spinal column using a counterweight bag filed with water and a sling. I'm sure it provides relief, but the design is juuuust a little off-putting. [Spinalbrace via Core77]
