TEMS Solutions SWAT-T (Stretch, Wrap & Tuck Tourniquet) Developed by an operator with over 14 years of experience as both a USAF PJ and a DOD Contractor, the SWAT-T is a simple, lightweight, compact and cost-effective life-saving First Aid Tool.
But is it effective?
Yes! A 2014 study showed that out of 32,956 applications, there were ZERO First Time Use Failures, resulting in full occlusion of arterial blood ﬂow in all cases studied. A 2013 study revealed a lower incidence of neurological or muscular insult, a direct result of the design of the product using a wide pressure band, over twice the width of commonly available Windlass style Tourniquets. In addition to its exceptional track record in managing trauma in Adults, they are also ideal for use with small children who have less muscle mass in their extremities than adults.
The SWAT-T is also an excellent choice for managing hemorrhage in canine trauma due to the tapered structure of their limbs.
