Supine traction with the CET-1 Traction device generally requires a traction fulcrum (not included with the CET-1 Traction Unit) for proper comfort and support. Different doctors have different preferences and there’s no real right or wrong. It’s simply a matter of having a fulcrum on hand that will support your patient properly yet comfortably during the traction process.
Here are several styles for your consideration. These aren’t expensive items. I suggest just keeping a few of each on hand in order to accommodate your patient’s needs.
