Tourniquet, SOF TOURNIQUET GEN 4, Wide
The SOF® Tourniquet Generation 4 (SOF®TT-W) is a true generational upgrade to the most effective tourniquet on the market featuring 4 key upgrades:
1 Retention Clip
The Retention Clip helps to secure the windlass by locking it in place once the tourniquet has been applied. This is especially helpful for one-handed applications, resulting in faster application times and doubling the security of the device in combination with the tri-ring during patient movements.
2. 5.5″ Windlass
The increase in length eases the process of securing the windlass into the clip and tri-ring, increasing the effectiveness of the dual retention system. It still maintains its distinct conical ends while being machined from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum bar stock and anodized to minimize the product’s signature in a tactical environment.
3. Quick-Compression Buckle
The Quick-Compression Buckle, added to the tourniquet last year, allows for smoother buckle manipulation due to its rounded edges. This also allows for easier one-handed application and overall faster application time.
4. Reinforced Material
Yes, we found a way to make the strongest tourniquet even stronger.
The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet Wide (SOF®TT-W) is the result of an exhaustive 24-month research initiative compiling end-user research and laboratory studies to develop a more effective, easier-to-use tourniquet for all environments. High-strength, lightweight alloy components are used in critical areas of function ensuring reliability in the most challenging of circumstances and on the largest of limbs. This was all accomplished while reducing the weight by approximately 15%.
The high-strength hook and buckle interface was designed for security, strength, and ease of application. The design allows for rapid routing of the tourniquet strap while eliminating need for re-threading the webbing through a buckle. By eliminating the requirement to re-route the webbing, the tourniquet is easier to use when operating under stress and reduces application time, both of which can result in reduced levels of blood loss and better quality patient care.
The SOF®TT-W also has a true 1.5″ tourniquet strap providing a wider compression pattern than most standard tourniquets or tourniquets with a 1″ constricting band moving through a 1.5″ sleeve. This broader compression pattern allows for increased patient comfort and additional arterial compression.
The tourniquet handle is machined from a single piece of high-strength aluminum bar stock. The strength of the handle virtually eliminates the risk of product failure. It is then anodized to minimize the products signature in a tactical environment.
Each tourniquet ships with two UV resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment.
