Product Feature: SAM Medical: Pelvic Sling II

The SAM Pelvic Sling II is the first and only force controlled pelvic belt scientifically proven to safely reduce and stabilize open-book pelvic ring fractures. This belt was designed to not over-tighten or under-tighten, unlike others which allow unlimited force to be applied to the patient. Through research and clinical trials they were able to determine the range of force required to safely and effectively close an unstable pelvic fracture, and this sling will do the trick.

The auto stop buckle is programmed to stop your pull once the correct compression has been obtained. The importance of stabilizing pelvic fractures during the critical 'golden hour' following severe trauma cannot be stressed enough. Because of the potentially devastating hemorrhage associated with such fractures, protocol includes applying some type of circumferential binder around the victims hips.

  • Scientifically and clinically proven to provide safe and effective force to stabilize pelvic fractures
  • Buckle maintains correct force; cannot be over-tightened
  • Standard size fits 98% of population
  • "Click" provides clear feedback to confirm correct application
  • Pulling gradually and symmetrically increases sling tension and reduces the pelvis
  • Low friction posterior slider facilitates transfers
  • Front of Sling is narrow and tapered to facilitate urinary catheterization, interventional radiology, external fixation and abdominal surgery
  • Fabric does not stretch and cleans for reuse with standard detergents or antimicrobial solutions
  • Radiolucent (allowing for X-rays without removal)
  • Ease of application: just insert belt through buckle, pull strap, and secure
  • Velcro on strap and sling for quick and easy fastening
  • Reusable, not a onetime use device
  • Latex free
