The Gen.5 Tourniquet, like its predecessors was developed for the fast treatment of life-threatening bleeding on the extremities. It can prevent massive blood loss and replaces classic pressure bandages in today's combat units. The Tourniqet is standard personal medical equipment in many military units. It can use it to treat comrades or yourself quickly in order to give medical personnel more time for treatment in an emergency.
To do this, it is placed on the injured limb and then the lock is closed. The time is noted on the top of the white Velcro tape in order to loosen the pressure at regular intervals preventing the body tissue from dying.
- Overall length: approx. 94 cm
Note: The tourniquet is not an original and therefore not suitable for medical treatment. For training purposes only on dummies, NEVER use a Tourniquet on a human body for training purposes.
