Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT) – GEN7
Combat Application Tourniquet CAT.
Since its combat introduction by the U.S. Army in 2005, the Combat Application Tourniquet® – a true one-handed tourniquet – has decreased the mortality rate due to extreme exsanguination by 85%. The U.S. Army Institute of Research deemed it to be 100% effective.
Now, C•A•T Resources has developed the all-new C•A•T® GEN7. Following extensive field reviews, the C•A•T® GEN7 has been completely re-designed, making it the most effective Combat Application Tourniquet® to date. The new GEN7 is simpler to use thanks to a single application protocol, single buckle routing system and further improvements to its components and construction.
1. SINGLE ROUTING BUCKLE
Decreased blood loss, effective slack removal, fewer windlass turns, simplified training with single protocol application standards
2. WINDLASS ROD
Increased diameter, enhanced strength, aggressive ribbing improves grip
3. WINDLASS CLIP
Bilateral beveled entry, rapid windlass lock, bilateral buttress, added strength
4. WINDLASS STRAP
New reinforced strap, gray color for tactical considerations (Black only)
5. STABILIZATION PLATE
Reinforced, beveled contact bar, improved comfort
6. FREE-MOVING INTERNAL BAND
Patented band within band, truly even distribution of circumferential pressure
