Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T®) - GEN 7, Black
Item code: 30001-02
When work began
on the C-A-T® GEN 7, every element that defines a tourniquet designed
for combat use, was taken into consideration. The challenge was to find
the best, most forward looking way possible to enhance performance and
maximize application success. Leveraging input from after action
reviews, researchers, material scientist and the end-user, they were
able to create the most advanced C-A-T® to date. Every component of the
C-A-T® GEN 7 is optimized for performance and reliability.
C-A-T® GEN 7 has a single routing buckle system that (1) allows for
extremely fast application and effective slack removal (2) Simplified
training with single protocol directions for all applications.
patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100%
effective by the U.S. Army's Institute of Surgical Research.
