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.
- Does Not Extend Beyond the Foot: Stays anatomically contained from the patient's hip to ankle
- Rapid Patient Application: No poles to assemble or mechanisms to set up
- Not Contraindicated in Lower Leg Injury or Amputation: Unique design allows the ankle strap to be alternately positioned proximal to the calf, allowing femur traction to still be applied, and leaving the lower leg accessible for other splinting or bandaging
- Lightweight and Compact: Weighs only 21 ounces and can easily be strapped to trauma bags and backpacks
- One Size Fits All: Works on both adults and pediatrics
- Traction Mechanism Accessible During Transport: Traction adjustment is accessible at the patient’s hip
- Radiolucent: Aluminum is barely visible on x-ray. Thumb screws on locks are steel, therefore, visible on x-ray
- Corrosion and Shock Resistant: Telescoping poles are made of lightweight, high tensile strength 6061 aluminum
Each set includes:
- (3) Telescoping aluminum poles with two easy-to-use thumb screw locks
- (1) Neoprene ankle hitch
- (1) Adjustable nylon grain strap with a quick-release buckle
- (1) Optional mid-leg neoprene strap that can be applied for added rotational security
