We are now able to supply the newly released enhanced CAT® tourniquet. The enhanced model has all the features and efficiency of its predecessor, (described below), and now features:
- a windlass rod twice as strong with increased diameter and improved grip
- a reinforced windlass grip
- a highly visible security tab with writeable area to record the time of application
The CAT® uses a self-adhering band and a friction adaptor buckle to fit a wide range of extremities combined with a one-handed windlass system.
The windlass uses a free moving internal band to provide true circumferential pressure to an extremity. The windlass is then locked in place; this requires only one hand, with the Windlass Clip™.
The CAT® tourniquet also has a Hook -and- Loop Windlass Strap™ for further securing of the windlass during patient transport.
