From the Experts:
I have introduced the Faretec CT-EMS to the students in all my WFR, WEMT and ski patrol classes since the first model became available. They are always impressed with the light weight and ease of application. In particular, the mechanical advantage of the pulley system makes it easier to apply adequate traction than with other types of traction splints; and the detachable ankle hitch (which can be secured in seconds) makes it easy for one rescuer to assemble and connect the splint while another applies manual traction. It would be a very practical choice for wilderness rescue teams that need to carry their equipment in their packs.

We have received the CT-6 Traction Device. It’s a perfect product, we used it in our courses, our students were very positive after training with the CT-6. We introduced it at the Medical training centre of the Dutch army.

I have used the Faretec traction splint several times. It is easy to use on both adults and children. I love that it is so light weight. It has been good for aeromedical and search and rescue emergency care. It holds enough tension to provide some relief for pain associated with femur fractures. Also, it has been a great educational tool during my PHTLS courses.

We have used your CT-6 traction splint for training many times in the ED. I demonstrated them at several university hospital programs around the country. I think that this is an excellent device and I have recommended its use often in my travels.

The CT-6 has been our obvious choice of traction device to use, teach and distribute. It offers distinct advantages for the environments that we operate in and teach others to provide casualty care in. Simple things, like the fact that it comes out of its pouch in one piece mean that no pieces get lost in the dark or fall down the slope, and the 4:1 mechanical advantage adjustment is a huge improvement in applying traction to the leg. From the perspective of a user, teacher and distributor, this is truly the best traction device in its class.
