Pneumatic system for the stabilisation of pelvic fractures
The pelvic sling (for single use) is a non-invasive, external pelvis stabiliser for compression and stabilisation of unstable pelvic fractures. The inflatable cuffs exert a lateral pressure to the pelvis for external stabilisation of the pelvic ring to restore the anatomic conditions. Hemorrhage is reduced by reduction of the intra-pelvic volume.
Slide Splint / Knee Fixation
To slide the pelvic sling underneath the patients pelvis. After removal used as knee fixation.
Lateral compression of the pelvis due to pneumatic cuffs. Minimal mechanical manipulation on the fractured pelvis.
Visual control of the applied pressure
For a leak free transport
For inflation and deflation of both cuffs. Removable for MRI use.
Pelvic sling in situ with slide splint used as knee fixation.
- Due to the positioning line at the level of the trochanter
major a correct placement of the pelvic sling can be
- The slide splint facilitates the application of the pelvic
sling and can help to consider the important internal
rotation of the lower extremities
Internal rotation of the lower extremities
Maintenance of the important internal rotation of the lower extremities when using the slide splint as knee fixation. In this case there is no need for other additional aids which do not belong to the pelvic sling (1, 2).
Compact pack size
The pelvic sling is packed in a compact size bag, ready to use. Pack size: 42 cm (L) x 19 cm (W) x 7 cm (H)
