A travois was a type of small sled used for transport over land.

In 2373, Quark fashioned a travois to carry Odo after their runabout crashed on a class L planet and Odo broke one of his legs. Quark was able to pull Odo on the travois for a time until Quark collapsed, suffering from hunger and exhaustion. (DS9: "The Ascent")

The use of the term comes from the script. The term is also used in the synopsis of "The Ascent" in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion.
