In cases of fracture of the femur, skeletal traction of the femur and suspension of the limb have been harmonized mechanically and dynamically by means of a simple adjustable splint which does not require special vigilance and which permits movements of the knee and the use of physiotherapy, thus giving more comfort and greater freedom of movement to the patient. At the same time, the traction is efficiently maintained and all disturbances at the seat of the fracture are avoided.
