The femur isnÌt an easy bone to break, unless youÌre participating in extreme sports or recreating them in off-road areas. Transporting equipment to these areas and then transporting the patient back to civilization is made more difficult with a heavy, bulky traction splint. TheOptimum Traction DevicefromEmergency Products & Research replaces the traditional aluminum pole with a state-of-the-art carbon fiber pole that can adjust instantly for adult and pediatric use. ThereÌs no ischial bar, so concerns over unnecessary pressure and additional pain are alleviated. A single provider can properly apply the device in less than one minute.
