October 2006 (Chicago, IL) — The International Museum of Surgical Science recently opened a new exhibit featuring the Accu-SPINA® device, a physiotherapeutic spinal treatment device manufactured by North American Medical Corporation.While the museum features over 7,000 medical instruments which are considered to have historical significance within the medical community, the Accu-Spina represents one of the first exhibits reflecting the more recent trend in healthcare towards less invasive procedures.

The museum was opened in 1954 and is a division of the International College of Surgeons. Its mandate is to provide education on pioneering and innovative medical devices from around the world.The patented and patent pending Accu-Spina® system is the only spine care device certified to perform IDD Therapy® treatment, a computer directed treatment protocol that applies mobilization to specific spine levels to relieve pressure and spasm effects while promoting internal healing.
