Since its combat introduction by the U.S. Army in 2005, the Combat Application Tourniquet® – a true one-handed tourniquet – has decreased the mortality rate due to extreme exsanguination by 85%. The U.S. Army Institute of Research deemed it to be 100% effective.
Now, C•A•T Resources has developed the all-new C•A•T® GEN7. Following extensive field reviews, the C•A•T® GEN7 has been completely re-designed, making it the most effective Combat Application Tourniquet® to date. The new GEN7 is simpler to use thanks to a single application protocol, single buckle routing system and further improvements to its components and construction.
FAST. SAFE. EFFECTIVE.
THE GEN7 ADVANTAGE.
The Single Routing Buckle is a direct response to in-depth reviews of field and testing reports. Featuring a new single-routing buckle system, the C•A•T® GEN7 allows for simpler and faster application with more efficient slack removal resulting in decreased blood loss with fewerr windlass turns.
WHEN EVERY SECOND COUNTS
Despite the proven effectiveness of the Combat Application Tourniquet®, the new C•A•T® GEN7 goes even further toward making it easier and faster to use. All six components of the Combat Application Tourniquet® have been re-designed and improved on the C•A•T® GEN7.
1. SINGLE ROUTING BUCKLE
Decreased blood loss, effective slack removal, fewer windlass turns, simplified training with single protocol application standards
2. WINDLASS ROD
Increased diameter, enhanced strength, aggressive ribbing improves grip
3. WINDLASS CLIP
Bilateral beveled entry, rapid windlass lock, bilateral buttress, added strength
4. WINDLASS STRAP
New reinforced strap, gray color for tactical considerations (Black only)
5. STABILIZATION PLATE
Reinforced, beveled contact bar, improved comfort
6. FREE-MOVING INTERNAL BAND
Patented band within band, truly even distribution of circumferential pressure
