TRACTION TYPESFixed traction The pull is exerted against a fixed point.The usual method is to tie the traction cords to the distal end of a Thomas' splint and pull the leg down until the proximal, padded ring of the splint abuts firmly against the pelvis.Balanced traction Here the traction cords are guided over pulleys at the foot of the bed and loaded with weights; counter-traction is provided by the weight of the body when the foot of the bed is raised.Combined traction If a Thomas' splint is used, the tapes can be tied to the end of the splint and the entire splint is then suspended,
