The name of this product not only describes the communities it was designed for, but also it's function: Stretch, Wrap, And Tuck. This tourniquet is designed for teams that operate in environments with high incidences of penetrating trauma. Given that two thirds of preventable deaths in the operational environment are from extremity bleeding, a solid solution is required. The SWAT-Tourniquet provides a more rapid means to control such bleeding and allows application higher into the groin and axilla than other tourniquets. Its ease of application is one of its greatest benefits; individuals can effectively apply it in seconds with little to no prior training. At a third of the cost and weight of other combat tourniquets, the SWAT-Tourniquet should find its way into the kit of every tactical operator. The SWAT-T comes in UV-protective packaging that gives it a 5-year shelf life.
