The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet-Wide (SOF®TT-W) is the result of an
exhaustive 24 month research initiative compiling end-user research and
laboratory studies to develop a more effective, easier to use tourniquet
for all environments. High-strength, light-weight alloy components are
used in critical areas of function ensuring reliability in the most
challenging of circumstances and on the largest of limbs. This was all
accomplished while reducing the weight by an amazing 25%.
The high strength hook and buckle interface was designed for
security, strength and ease of application. The design allows for rapid
routing of the tourniquet strap while eliminating need for re-threading
the webbing through a buckle. By eliminating the requirement to re-route
the webbing the tourniquet is easier to use when operating under stress
and reduces application time, both of which can result in reduced
levels of blood loss and better quality patient care.
The SOF®TT-W also has a true 1 ½” tourniquet strap providing a wider
compression pattern than most standard tourniquets, or tourniquets with a
1” constricting band moving through a 1 ½” sleeve. This broader
compression pattern allows for increased patient comfort and additional
The tourniquet handle is machined from a single piece of high
strength aluminum bar stock. The strength of the handle virtually
eliminates the risk of product failure. It is then anodized to minimize
the products signature in a tactical environment.
Each tourniquet ships with two UV resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment.
- A true 1 ½” constricting band for increased constricting pressure and patient comfort.
- Quick-connect, snap-lock buckle design, allowing rapid re-routing of the band around trapped limbs
- without rethreading.
- Lower-profile, lighter weight alloy components, providing the required strength and durability only metal can offer.
- Single application method regardless of location.
- 25% lighter than the current SOF® Tactical Tourniquet and reduced size for easier storage.
