Description

 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.

The tourniquet band is made of a self-adhering Velcro, making it easy to apply to all extremities regardless of diameter.

The free end is pulled through the friction adaptor buckle, which provides maximum hold and can block snow and sand from getting in.

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.
