The RapidStop® Tourniquet combines ease and innovation to mitigate the risk of death arising from serious limb injury. The intuitive tourniquet requires only gross motor control to operate and achieves full blood vessel occlusion in 11 seconds.
An individual who has sustained a serious limb injury, and has fully severed an artery, has a window of about 60 seconds to stabilise the limb before falling unconscious and bleeding out. Quick application is crucial, and the RapidStop® Tourniquet is designed to provide just that.

Designed for single handed self-application, this tourniquet can be applied with only gross motor abilities. It does not move, spin, or twist and remains stable throughout the application process, even without the assistance of teeth or a supporting hand.
The RapidStop® Tourniquet has a tensile strength of 600N, which is three times that of the 200N required to completely obstruct blood flow. In place of velcro loops (which are more susceptible to dirt and grit), it features a quick-lock mechanical clasp, and once secured, rapidly achieves full occlusion on limbs ranging in circumference from 7 to 33 inches.
To use, follow the easy two-step guided instructions stitched on the product, or utilise the pocket-sized instruction cards or online instructional video.
The RapidStop® Tourniquet is recommended for treatment of traumatic injuries in high-risk industries such as construction, machinery, manufacturing and lumber yards, as well as extreme outdoor sports and emergency first responders.
