The C-A-T® utilizes a durable windlass system with a 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 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.

  • Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army
  • Proven to be 100% effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower extremities by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research
  • Single Route Buckle:  Decreases application time to reduce blood loss, allows rescuer to easily remove slack from tourniquet on initial application to decrease number of turns on the windlass to control bleeding, reduces training confusion as there is only one set of instructions for application as one-handed and two-handed application are now the same.
  • Windlass Rod: Slightly increased diameter windlass rod to add even more strength and external ribbing for improved grip when twisting rod.
  • Windlass Clip: Bilateral buttress added for additional strength to reduce clip flexing under extreme pressures.
  • Windlass Securing Strap/Time Stamp: Sonic weld to clip for better securing. On the black color C-A-T®, the strap is now gray in color to provide a subdued look. The orange and blue trainer strap will remain white.
  • Stabilization Plate: Reinforced for additional strength, beveled edges to reduce patient discomfort on application and the logo and manufacture information is now molded instead of printed on the stabilization plate.
