1. Elastic traction may be used to shorten materially the length of time necessary for the correction of club feet.

2. This traction provides a constant, effective pressure which brings about change in position slowly, and permits the circulation to readjust itself to the changing position.

3. By means of elastic bands a variety of different units of force can be applied, making this form of traction adaptable to practically all types of club feet.
