Torture Device 2005(beta) Edition

My poor 16-year-old sister has just had this torture contraption installed into her mouth. Apparently, her jaw is too narrow and that is affecting her spine. (I don't know how those two are related.)
On a daily basis, she will insert a thin metal tool to turn the screw which is right in the middle on the contraption) in order to increase the width of the metal device. Yes, it does hurt. Each round she turns the screw, her jaw gets pushed apart a quarter of a millimetre.
She sounds like Darth Vader when she tries to suck out the food that gets stuck in between the contraption and her upper palete.
Everybody say "Aw!'
