The Rescue Essentials Slishman Traction Splint (STS) has the traction mechanism positioned at the patient’s hip. Femur traction is applied through the extension of the pole segments creating a pushing force on the ankle strap instead of pulling distally from the foot.

The STS boasts a red toggle at the end of the shorter traction cord for a better grip. The STS’s improved labeling and superior red color coding enable quicker patient femur fracture stabilization and application.
