Military Combat Application Tourniquet®

Modern military soldiers rely on the C-A-T® tourniquet to stop arm or leg blood flow due to injury on the battlefield.

Since 2004, the C-A-T® tourniquet has been issued to over one million military personnel.  Its effectiveness as a life-saving instrument for our military soldiers on the battlefield has played a significant role in improvement of modern warfare combat injury medical care.  Soldiers now take comfort in the fact that they will go to battle with a proven design combat medical care tool in their possession.  They may even elect to carry 2 or more C-A-T® tourniquets with them in the event of a warfare disaster.

The C-A-T® has revolutionized battlefield care for the military user, given its ISR (Institute of Surgical Research) confirmed effective function and its lightweight design, less than ½  the weight of like products.  Soldiers have come to rely on its compact design and ease of storage as they prepare to enter combat.
