Our mission at RATS Medical is to provide fast, easy-to-use and completely effective gear that the ordinary person can use efficiently during extraordinary circumstances.
Stop the Bleed
The number one cause of death among combatants and outdoor enthusiasts is trauma and blood loss.
We believe that this can be solved.
The RATS Tourniquet uses the simple combination of a three finger loop, trucker's hitch, and tight but closely spaced wraps to stop the bleed and save yourself, or others. Use it in the dark, under stress, and one-handed.
WORK UNDER STRESS
We get it. Not every situation gives you time to think through what you're doing. The RATS Tourniquet has you covered. The simple and elegant design is so easy to use that it can be appleid in the dark and one handed. It's so simple, a kid could use it... and they have.
Works with Animals
The RATS Tourniquet isn't just for people - it works on animals, too. As in this image here, the principles of application and stopping bleed are the same, whether you have two legs or four.
