Rush Countersupport

The Rush Countersupport was designed primarily to aid reduction and x-ray during surgery. It has since proven to have many other valuable uses. Pinning of the tibia shaft fractures can be greatly facilitated by the use of the countersupport, in both closed and semi-closed operations. For the shaft of the femur it is invaluable for allowing traction with the flexed knee and to elevate the lower fragment. Often referred to as the "leg holder" it has proven to be indispensable in the emergency room as well as the operating room.
