The Faretec CT-6 Military Leg Traction Splint is designed for pre-hospital care and patient transport, specifically in combat scenarios. It is primarily used on patients with mid-line femur fractures. The CT-6 helps relieve patient pain and prevents further damage to surrounding muscle and tissue while reducing the risk of death caused from severed arteries.
The CT-6 is made of carbon tubing which snaps together via an internal bungee. A Cobra buckle secures the Ischial strap to the upper leg and groin. These buckles prevent accidental releases and are commonly used by U.S. military forces. Traction is achieved with a four to one purchase system using a small line to apply tension. This method results in a very precise and delicate form or traction that is also powerful enough to be effective on extra-large adults.
The CT-6 is extremely compact, light and strong.

It is very small right out of the package and with a simple shake it puts itself together. (Most of the time) The device can be applied in about 60 seconds with very little training. Great for just about anywhere you want fast traction!
