The newest evolution of the SOF Tourniquet the benchmark for prehospital tourniquets. Purposeful upgrades allow for smoother and faster one-handed and two-handed applications for the most effective bleeding control.
Its innovative design comes from years of extensive research, material testing, and end-user feedback on and off the battlefield. It continues to evolve with your changing medical response needs when bleeding control is needed most.
The SOF Tourniquet easily slides over an arm or leg. It unclips at the buckle to fit around hard-to-reach areas, such as a trapped limb.
The feedback gathered is shown in the tourniquet’s improved design and effectiveness. It is stronger, lighter, and easier to use so you can stop the bleed anywhere life takes you.
UPGRADES IN THE NEW SOF TOURNIQUET:
1) Performance Compression Band Completely redesigned webbing maximizes compression during the application process. At a true 1.5” (3.8 cm) width, the new performance material glides through the Rugged Buckle for quick, snag-free operation and minimizes loss of pressure over time after application.
2) Slack Indicator Wedge Stitched into the Performance Compression Band below the windlass. The contrasting wedge offers a visual confirmation you have pulled all excess slack from the band. This is a critical step for proper tourniquet application and results in fewer windlass rotations required to reach occlusion.
3) Rugged Buckle Engineered to remove excess slack in a single fluid motion. The buckle’s shape stabilizes the Performance Compression Band at any angle of engagement. The new Rugged Buckle is an advanced, lightweight composite design with superior strength over previous versions.
The high-strength hook and buckle interface was designed for security, strength, and ease of application. The design allows for rapid routing of the tourniquet strap while eliminating need for re-threading the webbing through a buckle. By eliminating the requirement to re-route the webbing, the tourniquet is easier to use when operating under stress and reduces application time, both of which can result in reduced levels of blood loss and better quality patient care.
The SOFTT-W also has a true 1.5" tourniquet strap providing a wider compression pattern than most standard tourniquets or tourniquets with a 1" constricting band moving through a 1.5" (3.8 cm) sleeve. This broader compression pattern allows for increased patient comfort and additional arterial compression.
The tourniquet handle is machined from a single piece of high-strength aluminum bar stock. The strength of the handle virtually eliminates the risk of product failure. It is then anodized to minimize the products signature in a tactical environment.
Each tourniquet ships with two UV resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment.
A true 1.5" (3.8 cm) constricting band for increase constricting pressure and patient comfort
Newly designed quick-compression buckle technology
Rapid re-routing of the band around trapped limbs without rethreading
Smoother buckle manipulation
SOF Tourniquet from Tactical Medical Solutions was designed by a Special Forces medic while on deployment in Afghanistan in 2003 to save lives. It is still the preferred tourniquet for elite military forces and emergency responders worldwide.
