A traction splint is typically used to treat severe mid shaft fractures of the femur. The femur is the longest and strongest bone in the human body; the surrounding muscles (quadriceps) are also incredibly strong. When the femur breaks, the surrounding muscles spasm, pulling the bone ends past each other, which results in immense pain, bleeding (internal or external), and muscle and nerve damage. Because of the femur’s proximity to the femoral artery, it is possible to hemorrhage to death from an isolated femur fracture
Our traction splint effectively realigns a fractured femur to proper position, effectively reducing pain, restoring profusion and inhibiting vascular, nerve, bone and muscle damage.
These splints feature a unique telescoping design along with easy-to-follow directions printed on the nylon leg straps to ensure quick application.
