In brief: Do not waste your

Money on a repackaged form of traction.
If you want to try something that you can own for a fraction of the price, try an inversion table. There is no scientific literature that supports any spinal decompression system. Bulging discs are not abnormal and herniated disc symptoms may be temporarily decreased with traction.
