Historical Vignette: The "Chariot Rotator for Mobilization of the Vertebral Column", Serving Neurosurgeons of the Montpellier School in the Early 19th Century

In the beginning of the 19th century, in Montpellier, four innovative neurosurgeons, Gruveilhier, Lallemand, Rech and Delpech, introduced the on sight use of the "chariot rotator for mobilization of the vertebral column". This wooden machine was at the era used to mobilise de novo a defected spine, in order to restore its normal form, as surgery was considered traumatic and most probably fatal.
