The C-A-T is a
true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S.
Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. Tests proved that the
C-A-T completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a
traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.
utilizes a durable windlass system with a free-moving internal band
providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once
adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked
into place. A hook-and-loop strap is then applied, securing the
windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The
C-A-T’s unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws
and clips, which can become difficult to operate under survival stress
or where fine motor skills are compromised.
