Windlass Rescue Tourniquet
The Windlass Rescue Tourniquet is a one-handed tourniquet.
Tests proved that this design completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.
The Windlass Tourniquet utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The Windlass Tourniquet's dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.
Features the red tip design and the mechanical advantage of a band within a band. Stabilization Plate - Reinforced, beveled contact bar, improved comfort.
