Evidence

Two Spinal Traction Units are currently in use in New Zealand: one in Christchurch Public Hospital and the other in Middlemore Hospital in Auckland.

In Christchurch, seventy reductions have been performed since 2008 using various Spinal Traction Unit prototypes with an 80% success rate. The success rate of the current device is approximately 90%. In unpublished data, the reductions that were done within the first 4-8 hours showed maximum motor gains with no Gardener-Wells pin cut outs. No patients had neurological deterioration.
