Quality Traction Splints Delivered Throughout Australia
In the event of a long bone fracture of the thigh, traction splints are often required to control bleeding and minimise pain suffered by the patient. The unique structure creates an anchor with straps over the pelvis or hip and a metal rod for increased stability, then mechanically applies traction to the affected limb.
The use of a traction splint is important in a variety of prehospital contexts, and Rapid Rescue offers multiple designs to keep you fully equipped. Our distributors span the country, meaning you can conveniently order your equipment online and have it promptly shipped to your doorstep.
