New traction devices in service, thanks to Bolton Lions donation

Thanks to a £1,000.00 donation from Bolton Lions Club earlier this summer, the team has purchsed six sets of ’Kendrick Traction Devices,’ a relatively simple to apply traction device for arm and mid shaft of femur fractures.

These very lightweight sets, which pack away into a small and neat carrying case, will be placed into each of our six Trauma Rucksacs.

Please also see articles dated 22nd May 2007 and 26th February 2007, concerning this very kind donation by Bolton Lions.
