The Combat Application Tourniquet®, introduced to U.S. Army in 2005 is a true one-handed tourniquet, widely credited with decreasing mortality rates due to extremity exsanguination by 85%. After an exhaustive study, the U.S. Army Institute of Research deemed it to be 100% effective.
Following extensive field reviews, the CAT GEN7 has been completely re-designed, making it the most effective Combat Application Tourniquet to date. The new CAT GEN7 is simpler to use thanks to a single application protocol, single buckle routing system and further improvements to its components and construction.
Single Routing Buckle
Faster application and effective slack removal resulting in decreased blood loss and fewer windlass turns to achieve arterial occlusion
Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications
Increased diameter for enhanced strength
Aggressive ribbing for improved grip
Bilateral beveled entry for rapid windlass lock
Bilateral buttress for added strength
Sonic welded to clip for constant contact
Color changed to Gray for tactical considerations (Black CAT Only)
Reinforced, beveled contact bar maintains the plate’s integrity and decreases skin pinching.
