TOTAL CONCEPT TRACTION DEVICE - QUANTIFIABLE DYNAMIC TRACTION.

The Sager 204 provides increased safety, comfort and manoeuvrability for child or adult, whilst treating single or bilateral lower limb fractures. The Sagers lschial Perineal Cushion duplicates the Thomas Full Ring function. Counter traction against the ischial tuberosity, pubic ramus and the symphasis pubis is attached comfortably for both sexes of all body sizes.

No ishial bar to interfere with interochanteric, sub capsular and other proximal femoral fractures. Pelvis and body reclination remain natural for straight and sublime alignment.

Sagers Dynamic Traction flows with the patients injury to allow for relaxation or contraction which invariably occurs. The quantifiable feature allows easy visual reference to control the recommended 15 pounds (6.8kg) traction at all

The Sager system permits you to document exactly how much traction you have applied to your patient. Many orthopaedic surgeons refer to a maximum of 15 pounds traction and caution against excessive 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 damage, loss of blood, or patient discomfort.
