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 (59 grams) design, less than ½ the weight of like products. Soldiers have come to rely on its compact design and ease of storage (folded 6 inch length) as they prepare to enter combat.
