Sager Emergency Traction Splints are the world's only emergency traction splints with Quantifiable, Dynamic Traction™. Their patented system permits you to document exactly how much traction you have applied to your patient. Many orthopedic surgeons refer to a maximum of 15 pounds traction - and caution against excessive traction!

Besides being quantifiable, Sager traction is dynamic. The dynamic function permits the traction to decrease as the spasm releases. You will always have the correct amount of safe, secure traction. Static traction splints cannot compensate for relaxing muscle masses during emergency traction splinting unless the attendant notices patient discomfort or loss of traction and makes adjustments. In addition, any compensation with static traction is an unknown variance and may result in further nerve, vascular or tissue damage and patient discomfort.
