An intelligent compact traction device for splinting lower extremities. The system is made up of a folding snap out aluminum pole, color coded elastic leg straps, adjustable ankle hitch, and adjustable groin strap. We have used these for years on ski patrol, but their compactness and ease of use is quickly making them the device of choice on aid rigs around the country. Fits in a 12” x 6” pouch, and since you don’t have to jack the leg up in the air ( like with Hares etc.) to use it, the KTD can be applied by a single rescuer!
