“I have been in the volunteer fire service for eighteen years and your Sager Splints have performed flawlessly every time I needed to apply one to a patient with a Femur fracture. … This summer we had to use the Sager on a young woman who had hit a tree in a full-sized pickup … We applied the splint in less than two minutes and transported her to the local hospital where the x-rays confirmed that the leg was fractured and that the Sager had reduced the fracture back to a normal position. … I think that every emergency response system should have this piece of equipment; its functionality is unsurpassed in the realm of emergency response and patient care. Once again thank you for this truly innovative equipment.

- Sager Traction Splints are indicated in 93% of all femoral fractures (treats mid-shaft and proximal third fractures). As such, they have a much broader range of application and use than other traction splints.
- From field to hospital: When applied, Sager Splint model SX404 is radiolucent to all areas of a femoral fracture. Radiolucent design enables X-Rays and Catscans to be taken without removing the splint.
- Provide Quantifiable, Dynamic Traction: You always know how much traction you’ve applied. Traction decreases as spasm releases. You will always have the correct amount of safe, secure, traction.
- Universal: treats adult or child (5th to 99th percentile of patients) and treats single or bilateral fractures (model S301 – single fractures only). Models SX404 and S304 have 4X the potential of other traction splints.
