  • Slishman Traction Splint - Compact (STS-C)
    Introducing the latest innovation in femoral traction pre-hospital care....

  • Introducing the latest innovation in femoral traction pre-hospital care. 

    Compact, lightweight, and designed to meet military specifications, the new Rescue Essentials “STS-C” is a more compact version of the Slishman Traction Splint. And like the original STS, the STS-C generates a mechanical advantage using an internal pulley to apply precise femoral traction.

    Features and Benefits:

    • Radiolucent
    • One size fits all, from small children to large adults
    • Only 13 ounces, and measuring 13” packed, the STS-C is one of the smallest and lightest traction splints on the market
    • Single connected device—no loose parts, which may get lost
    • So simple, it can be applied in under a minute with minimal training
    • Can be used even in cases of lower leg/foot amputation
    • Includes the Slishman Pressure Wrap to assist with rotational stability

    STS-C is the ideal traction splint in cases where medical equipment must be packed into difficult or remote locations. Ideally suited for search and rescue, special operations, military medics, wildland firefighters, backcountry skiers, or anyone trying to minimize pack weight and cube space.

    Dimensions: 13" H x 3" W

  • TRECK+ Talon Rescue Emergency Clothing Knife
    Remove multiple layers of clothing, racing uniforms, leathers, turnout gear, and other obstructions from a trauma patient without the use of trauma shears....

  • Safer and Faster than Shears!

    The TRECK+ (Talon Rescue Emergency Clothing Knife) is an alternative to trauma shears and seat belt cutters, specifically designed by EMTs, paramedics, and firefighters to simultaneously remove multiple layers of clothing, racing uniforms, leathers, turnout gear, and other obstructions from a trauma patient without the use of trauma shears.

    With most articles of clothing and equipment, the initial cut and repetitive motions of squeezing the shears with your thumb and finger can be unsafe, tiring, and time-consuming. Shears can and sometimes do fail, and ripping can be a mess or not an option with many materials such as leather.

    Access wounds quickly, safely, and easily. With a single shear-less insertion, and by using your wrist and arm, the TRECK+ works best as you draw it away from the patient. This prevents contact and also allows the TRECK+ to slice through materials more effectively.

    • Easier to Use - Clothing is channeled to the blade with a new ballpoint-to-blade guide which widens effective cutting angle.
    • Smooth Cuts - The polymer-coated blade minimizes friction for easy and even cuts.
    • Purpose-Built - Patented design cuts multiple layers simultaneously including: thick jackets, leathers, and heavy uniforms like turnout gear.
    • No Blade Changes - Patented, corrosion-resistant, polymer-coated blade maintains original, razor-sharp edge. Replace about half as often as shears.
    • Safe - Pull away from patient to cut with minimal tension with a single insertion.
    • Fast & Easy to Use - TRECK+ features new, elevated blade angle and optimized ballpoint guide.
    • Saves Hand Fatigue - Single tool makes entire cut without constant squeezing of shears.
    • Effective - Razor-sharp, heavy-duty, serrated utility razor blade makes easy and even cuts.
    • Rescue Use - Handle with grips for use with gloves, bright color, and ultra-lightweight design.
    • Strong & Lightweight - Solid ABS frame weighs only 2.3 ounces.
    • Convenient - Use with Holster, Sheath, Silicon Blade Cover, or Carabiner as a carry item, or store in trauma bag.
    • Inexpensive - Long-lasting, autoclavable, multi-use tool as shears, seat belt cutter and O2 wrench.
    • Lower Force - Blade angle, Teflon coating, and ballpoint reduce bunching and friction vs. hook knife and other tools
