The Slishman Traction Splint weighs 595 grams in the case.
The carrying case dimensions are 56cm x 7.6cm x 7.6cm.
Included are 3 telescoping aluminum poles with 2 easy-to-use thumb screw locks, a neoprene ankle hitch, an adjustable nylon groin strap with quick- release buckle, and an optional mid-leg neoprene strap that can be applied for added rotational stability.
Telescoping poles are made of light weight, high tensile strength 6061 aluminum.
Aluminum is barely visible on X-ray. Thumb screws on locks are steel, and are therefore, visible on X-ray.
