Extremity tourniquets have been on the market for several years. but, unfortunately, as noted by numerous papers on extremity tourniquet failure, lives have been lost due to inappropriately applied tourniquets.
Slack in the tourniquet strap is the main cause of failed tourniquet application, not achieving sufficient pressure to tamp the flow of blood. This can manifest itself from the first tensioning leaving too much slack to be taken up by the windlass.
SAM Medical has developed an innovative approach to help mitigate tourniquet failures, and preserve more lives. SAM XT‰۪s TRUFORCE‰ã¢ Buckle technology auto-locks at a predetermined amount of circumferential force, eliminating nearly all tourniquet slack.
This is achieved with an innovative baseline force control that activates locking prongs into the tourniquet strap.
Simply click, twist, and secure for a life-preserving tourniquet application.
This groundbreaking design, quality craftsmanship, and attention to detail make SAM XT an essential part of any first responder, military, medic, or disaster mitigation kit.
