Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT) Gen7

Calculated at Checkout

The patented C-A-T® Generation 7 is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research.

Tests proved that the C-A-T® Gen7 completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.

The C-A-T® Gen7 utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity.

Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place.

A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation.

The C-A-T®’s unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.
