Description

The SWAT-T, Stretch, Wrap and Tuck Tourniquet is a unique and multipurpose dressing that uses a non-latex elastic band that stretches around an extremity and tucks into itself for hours of effective pressure.

Its name provides a description for usage Stretch, Wrap, and Tuck while the graphics on the band indicate proper tourniquet pressure.

The SWAT-Tourniquet allows a more rapid means to control extremity bleeding and allows application higher into the groin and axilla than other tourniquets. Its ease of application is one of its greatest benefits; individuals can effectively apply it in seconds with little to no prior training.

It can also act as an occlusive bandage, a pressure dressing, and as an elastic bandage.

The band has been applied thousands of times and used in the sub-zero temps of Antarctica and boiled in water with no strength degradation.

It was widely used to great effect during the 2017 Las Vegas Mas Shooting.
