Product Description and Benefits:
The STS was developed by Dr. Sam Slishman at the University of New Mexico to overcome many of the the design limitations of conventional traction splints. The innovative STS design 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. This innovative design change provides a number of outstanding benefits over conventional traction splints:

1. The STS Does Not Extend Beyond the Foot
    The traction splint stays anatomically contained from the patient's hip to ankle and  
    thus does not extend outside backboards, litters, and stretchers. This greatly reduces
    the risk of the splint being struck while extricating patients in space restrictive
    environments resulting in further injury to the patient.

2. Rapid Patient Application
    The unique design of the STS makes it the fastest splint to apply on the market. No poles
    to assemble or mechanisms to set up. When you need to immobilize the patient quickly
    for rapid extrication the STS won’t slow you down.

3. The STS is Not Contraindicated in Lower Leg Injury or Amputation
    While other traction splints are contraindicated with lower leg injury or amputation, the
    STS’s unique design allows the ankle strap to be alternately positioned proximal to
    the calf. This allows femur traction to still be applied and leaves the lower leg
    accessible for other splinting or bandaging.

4. Lightweight and Compact
    The STS weighs only 21 ounces and is 23” W x 3” H in size. It takes up little space
    in vehicles or aircrafts and can easily be strapped to trauma bags and backpacks. 

5. One Size Fits All
    The STS works with both adults and peds. No need to carry two different splints. If  
    your agency requires you to carry two traction splints, two STS splints can be
    carried for bi-lateral splinting.

6. Traction Mechanism Accessible During Transport
    If traction adjustment is needed while enroute, the STS traction adjustment is
    accessible at the patient’s hip, not jammed up against the door or airframe at the
    patient's foot.

7. Radiolucent

8. Lifetime Warranty
