SOF® Tactical Tourniquet - Wide
"No other bandage offers so much versatility in such a small package"
Widely viewed as the first only real successor to the classic Israeli bandage, the Olaes® Modular Bandage offers fast, versatile bleeding control for all levels of care providers. Packed with features such as 3 meters of gauze, a removable occlusive plastic sheet (for sealing chest wounds and abdominal eviscerations) behind the dressing pad, and a pressure bar (that can also act as an eye cup), the advanced capabilities of the bandage are tucked neatly away and can be utilized if required or simply ignored.
Designed with direct input from some of the most experienced combat medics in the world, no detail has been left out. From the adhesive "brakes" on the elastic bandage that prevent accidental unrolling to the zig-zag packed gauze that easily feeds from the bandage, this is the most comprehensive feature packed bandage available without any added confusion.
No other bandage offers so much versatility in such a small package. Cover minor wounds, apply truly effective pressure dressings, apply occlusive dressings, and have the ability to pack severe wounds with one bandage.
During high stress situations, such as those involving casualties, stress effects on human performance often affect the fine motor skills of individuals. This makes simple tasks such as bandage application more difficult and time consuming. By creating a bandage where application involves only gross motor skills, no direction changes around hooks or bars, the Olaes® Modular Bandage significantly offers a simpler and more effective solution in bandage options. The elastic simply requires wrapping where the elastic stays flat instead of turning into a cord. Control of the elastic roll is maintained by the "Control Strips" should the elastic be dropped. You no longer have to open or carry a package of gauze and a separate bandage as both are included in the same package.
A True Pressure Cup
The unique pressure cup generates true focused pressure on top of the wound site when it is required, not circumferential pressure like an ineffective tourniquet. By generating this focused pressure it helps occlude damaged vessels at the wound site where it is needed. It also reduces the amount of manual pressure required to be held, freeing up the care provider to treat other injuries or casualties. The pressure cup can also be removed and used as an eye cup for treatment of ocular injuries as recommended in the new TCCC guidelines.
