For Stabilisation of Pelvic Fractures with the Correct Force
The SAM Pelvic Sling II was designed not to over-tighten or under-tighten, unlike other commercial binders which allow unlimited force to be applied to the patient. Researchers at Legacy Health System utilised cadaver studies and clinical trials to determine the optimum range of force required to safely and effectively close an unstable pelvic fracture.
The SAM Pelvic Sling II’s patented Autostop buckle is programmed to stop your pull once the correct compression force has been obtained. This is vital in high stress environments where over-tightening by emergency medical personnel under duress could potentially be extreme and harmful.
Trauma surgeons around the world recognize the importance of stabilizing pelvic fractures during the critical first “golden hour” following severe trauma. Because of the potentially devastating hemorrhage associated with such fractures, standard first aid protocol includes applying some type of circumferential binder around the victim’s hips.
Newly Improved One Piece Design
The SAM Pelvic Sling II improves upon our groundbreaking original pelvic sling. It is still the only force-controlled circumferential pelvic belt scientifically proven in peer-reviewed studies to safely and effectively reduce and stabilize open-book pelvic ring fractures.
The SAM Pelvic Sling II is an improved, simpler design with no detachable hardware. It is more compact, easy to use (only three steps) and quick to apply (usually in less than one minute). The standard size fits (without cutting or trimming) 98% of the adult population. It does not require a fine touch to operate and gives clear feedback by sound and feel to confirm correct application.
The sling is durable i.e. not affected by extremes of moisture, temperature or by exposure to hard or sharp objects. It is also radiolucent, MRI safe and cleans for re-use with common detergents or anti-microbial solutions.
Based on in vitro testing, the SAM Pelvic Sling™ II will not present a hazard or risk to a patient undergoing an MRI procedure using an MR system operating at 3-Tesla or less. The SAM Pelvic Sling™ II contains ferromagnetic springs in the buckle. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the SAM Pelvic Sling™ II is firmly applied to the patient prior to entry into the MRI environment (as stated in the labeling for this device). Accordingly, there will be no hazard or risk to a patient undergoing an MRI procedure. The SAM Pelvic Sling™ II should not be removed from the patient while in the MRI system room.

Why Does Controlling Circumferential Force Matter in the Treatment
of Pelvic Fractures?
At the time of initial evaluation, the exact type of fracture is usually unknown. In some cases, too little force will not close or stabilize the fracture; in others, too much force can collapse the pelvic ring. The SAM Pelvic Sling II stands alone as the only pelvic binder pre-programmed to apply the safe and correct force for all pelvic fractures.
