The adhesive and non-adhesive skin traction kits are used to apply traction to limbs following injury or surgery. The kit contains a foam lined stirrup, with two flexible adhesive side straps used to attach the stirrup to the leg. Traction is applied via the cord fixed to the stirrup. The adhesive skin traction kits provide a non-invasive method of applying traction to a limb. They are secured by use of hypo-allergenic adhesive straps, with an extra long retaining bandage to hold the full assembly in place on any size of limb. The adhesive strapping, conforms well to the contours of the leg.
