The RATS uses a solid vulcanized rubber core with a nylon sheath. Combine thatwith the unique locking mechanism, and this becomes an incredibly fast tourniquet to apply to self or others. No other tourniquet compares to the RATSwhen being used under stress in terms of time or ease of use.
The RATS is:
- Easy to learn and use
- Simply designed and allows for one handed use
- Small and takes up minimal space allowing you to store them almost anywhere
- Designed to also allow for use on small limbs, i.e. working dogs
- Proven to be effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower extremities by the U.S. Army's Institute of Surgical Research
- Patented U.S. Pat. No. 9,168,044
