The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet-Wide (SOF®TT-W) is the results of an exhaustive 24 month research initiative compiling end-user research and laboratory studies to develop a more effective, easier to use tourniquet for all environments. High-strength, light-weight alloy components are used in critical areas of function ensuring reliability in the most challenging of circumstances and on the largest of limbs. This was once all accomplished even as reducing the weight by an amazing 25%. The high strength hook and buckle interface was once designed for security, strength and ease of application. The design allows for rapid routing of the tourniquet strap even as getting rid of need for re-threading the webbing through a buckle. By getting rid of the requirement to re-route the webbing the tourniquet is easier to use when operating under stress and reduces application time, either one of which may end up in reduced levels of blood loss and better quality patient care. The SOF®TT-W also has a true 1 ½” tourniquet strap providing a much wider compression pattern than most standard tourniquets, or tourniquets with a 1″ constricting band moving through a 1 ½” sleeve. This broader compression pattern allows for increased patient comfort and additional arterial compression. The tourniquet deal with is machined from a single piece of high strength aluminum bar stock. The strength of the deal with virtually eliminates the risk of product failure. It is then anodized to minimize the products signature in a tactical environment. Every tourniquet ships with two UV resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment.
True 1.5″ constricting band for increased constricting pressure and patient comfort
Quick-connect, snap-lock buckle design, allowing rapid re-routing of the band around trapped limbs without rethreading
Lower-profile, lighter weight alloy components, providing the required strength and durability only metal can offer
Single application method irrespective of location
25% lighter than the current SOF® Tactical Tourniquet and reduced size for easier storage
