Noted as the best prehospital tourniquet in the February 2008 supplement of The Journal of Trauma!

The C-A-T is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Armys Institute of Surgical Research. Tests proved that the C-A-T completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.
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-Ts 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.
Special Features: Awarded as one of the Top 10 Greatest Inventions by the U.S. Army Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army Used by both conventional and Special Operation forces Proven to be 100% effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower extremities by the U.S. Armys Institute of Surgical Research True, one-handed application tourniquet Quickly controls life-threatening extremity bleeding Recommended by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care Designed to perform in all weather conditions Small and cost-effective
