It is INTUITIVE - The RapidStop® Tourniquet relies on key technologies to achieve rapid, intuitive and easy one-hand self-application. Application is even faster when a responder uses both hands to apply the tourniquet to a victim.
It is STRONG - The RapidStop® Tourniquet achieves full occlusion reliably and rapidly. It requires only gross motor control, allowing self-application to be readily possible. The RapidStop® Tourniquet is appropriate for controlling haemorrhage for injuries to both the arms and legs.
LIFESAVING is as easy as 1-2-3! Three simple and fast steps set RapidStop® Tourniquet apart from the competition. Guided by instructions on the product, pocket-sized instruction cards and video format. Integrated instructions on the RapidStop® Tourniquet are included using stitched waterproof vinyl tags resistant to any wear and tear.
Why tourniquets are vital to the modern emergency services and security staff - An individual who has sustained an injury to the arm or a leg and fully severed either the brachial, radial or ulnar artery has a window of approximately 60 seconds to stabilize the limb before decreasing blood pressure renders the individual unconscious. Shock can set in even sooner. Achieving full occlusion in the shortest time possible is critical. Faster application means the injured are stabilized sooner and/or more victims can be saved.
- MILITARY For use as a life-saving device in high-stress trauma situations where application time is critical. Only gross motor skills required to operate the RapidStop® Tourniquet.
- CIVILIAN FIRST-RESPONDERS Police, firefighters and EMTs are often first on the scene in civilian medical emergencies. RapidStop® Tourniquet can be easily carried and deployed by these service personnel to save lives.
- HIGH-RISK INDUSTRIES In places where people work daily with dangerous equipment on a construction site, oil rig, lumber yard, machine shop or distribution warehouse, RapidStop® Tourniquet should be at hand to mitigate the risk of death through serious limb injury.
