Product Name: Kendrick / Optimum Traction Device
Ferno Product Code: SVTS-KTD
The Optimum Traction Device (previously known as the Kendrick Traction Device) is compact, lightweight and easy to use.
Because the Optimum Traction Device (OTD) can be fitted without rolling a patient or raising their leg, it can be applied by just one person. The OTD also provides the ability to work around any hip or groin trauma.
The OTD consists of a folding snap-out aluminum pole which easily adjusts for adult or paediatric use, color coded elastic leg straps, adjustable ankle hitch, and adjustable groin strap.The lack of ischial bar eliminates concerns of causing unnecessary pressure and additional pain to the patient.
The OTD's compactness, low weight and ease of use makes this device especially suited for first aid, wilderness rescue, ski patrols, tactical response medics, military field medics and more. The OTD comes complete within a very compact storage orange-coloured pouch with easy-to-follow instructions.
