22.99 29.99

The Fastest, Safest, Most Effective Prehospital Field Tourniquet

The Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) Generation 7

When we began work on the C-A-T GEN 7 we considered every element that defines a tourniquet designed for combat use. We challenged ourselves to find the best, most forward-looking way possible to enhance performance and maximize application success. But we didn’t do this alone. Leveraging input from after action reviews, researchers, material scientists and you, the end-user, we were able to create the most advanced C-A-T to date. Every component of the C-A-T GEN 7 is optimized for performance and reliability.

The C-A-T GEN 7 has a single routing buckle system that (1) allows for extremely fast application and effective slack removal (2) Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications.

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