The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet is one of the top performing tourniquets
currently available. It is the tourniquet of choice for many of the
world's most elite and experienced warriors who have selected it for its
outstanding ability to control severe bleeding, high level of
reliability and ease of application. While some military units have
replaced their issue tourniquets with the SOF®TT, others military units
have implemented SOP's stating that the SOF® Tactical Tourniquet is to
be used on all lower extremity bleeds. That means the SOF®TT is the
tourniquet that trusted to control the most severe extremity hemorrhage
on the battlefield.
The key to successful implementation of a
device to be used in a high stress environment is training and ease of
use. For law enforcement officers, application of the tourniquet is
similar to the use of a hobble. This existing level of familiarity
reduces training time and aids in the effectiveness of the device.
Advantages of the SOF® Tactical Tourniquet
- 100% Effective. Proven to be 100% effective during US Army Institute of Surgical Research testing.
- Simple application.
The SOF®TT is applied the same to an arm or leg. Unlike other
tourniquets that require you to learn two methods of application and
implement the proper method when under stress, the SOF®TT is applied the
same way to an arm or leg. By accounting for the factors of human
performance in combat we have minimized the risk of failure. Applying a
tourniquet should not be a multiple choice exam, it should be simple
and straight forward. The SOF®TT provides the necessary effectiveness
with an unmatched level of simplicity to increase the overall
effectiveness of the device.
- Durability. The
SOF®TT is constructed of quality, high strength materials. The
tourniquet handle is machined from a solid piece of aircraft aluminum
and maintains its strength in extreme temperatures. The tri-rings are
molded Acetyl, a high impact plastic that will also maintain its
strength in extreme operating conditions.
The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet is designed to reduce the chance of
accidental release or mechanical failure. Unlike other materials
including Velcro®, the fastening system will perform when soiled, muddy,
frozen, or wet.
- Safety set screw prevents
accidental release of pressure during tactical patient movement. The
screw is not required to gain hemorrhage control, but it is recommended
if the patient will be moved in a tactical environment.
- Dual locking rings offer a back up locking system.
