Bandages, Traction

Definition : Bandages designed to place and fit orthoses and other orthopedic devices. These bandages typically consist of wide strips made of crepe, linen, foam rubber or other materials with sturdy fabric backing and may include an adhesive layer. Skin traction bandages are usually placed on the skin and connected to hanging weights or traction units. They are intended to manage fractures (e.g., to keep bones aligned in the case of fracture or dislocation) or to immobilize a swollen or injured joint; traction bandages are more frequently used in elderly patients during orthopedic-traction procedures.
