Slishman Traction Splint, Compact


Extremely compact and lightweight, the Slishman Traction Splint, Compact (STS-C) is designed for situations where medical equipment must be packed into difficult or remote locations. Ideally suited for search and rescue, special operations, military medics, wildland firefighters, backcountry skiers, or anyone trying to minimize pack weight and cube space.

The new STS-C is a more advanced version of the Slishman Traction Splint. Like the original, the STS-C generates a mechanical advantage using an internal pulley to apply precise femoral traction.

Application Information:

The distal hitch on the STS-C is applied just proximal to the calf or patella. Coarse positioning is accomplished using a spring button to extend and lock the outer tube. Fine traction is accomplished by pulling on the cord, followed by locking with a downward pull into the V-notch. With all traction at the hip, easily make adjustments as conditions change.
