IT´S ALL ABOUT TRACTION
Traction splints are a critical component of pre-hospital emergency medicine. More specialized than most other splinting devices, traction splints are most commonly used to reduce and stabilize femur fractures. We provide the finest traction splint on the market: Rescue Essentials' own Slishman Traction Splint™ (STS). This revolutionary traction splint is lightweight, ultra-strong, easily applied and adjusted, and requires minimal training. Objections to traction splints have usually centered around the time it takes to apply them and the training and retraining that most traction splints require. The Slishman Traction Splint (STS) overcomes both of these objections
NO EXTENSIONS BEYOND THE FOOT
The compact design of the STS won’t jam up against ambulance doors or prevent you from placing patients into aircraft. When extricating or hoisting the splint stays safely contained within the board, litter or basket.
No risk of striking the splint resulting in further injury or pain to the patient.
RAPID PATIENT APPLICATION IN UNDER 60 SECONDS
The unique design of the STS makes it the fastest splint to apply. No poles to assemble or mechanisms to set up. No long transport delays. Four step application process in rapid and easy.
The STS is radiolucent and will not interfere with patient imaging or exam. No need to remove the splint. The STS can stay on a patient all the way to surgery.
The STS is Not Contraindicated in Lower Leg Injury or Amputation
While other traction splints are contraindicated with lower leg injury or amputation, the STS’s unique design allows the ankle strap to be alternately positioned proximal to the calf. This allows femur traction to still be applied and leaves the lower leg accessible for other splinting or bandaging.
ONE SIZE FITS ALL
The STS works with both adults and peds. No need to carry two different splints. If your agency requires you to carry two traction splints, two STS splints can be carried for bi-lateral splinting of peds and adults.
