RATS Gen 2 (HiVis Green)
The Rapid Application Tourniquet System (R.A.T.S. U.S. Pat. No. 9,168,044) is the fastest tourniquet on the market and is used to stop massive hemorrhaging due to trauma. The R.A.T.S. uses a solid elastic core of proprietary material with a polyester sheath, combined with a patented locking mechanism to make an incredibly fast tourniquet to apply to self or others. No other tourniquet compares to the R.A.T.S. when being used under stress in terms of time or ease of use.
Generation 2 Features:
NEW: Longer to accommodate larger limbs!
The R.A.T.S. is:
•Easy to learn and use
•Simple design allows for one handed use
•Takes up minimal space allowing you to store almost anywhere
•Works on all limb sizes, i.e. adults, working dogs and children
•Proven to be effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower
extremities by the U.S. Army's Institute of Surgical Research
•Patented U.S. Pat. No. 9,168,044
The inner core of the strap does have some latex. The core however, is made of a vulcanized rubber with a high silicone content. Chance of latex reaction is considered the same as if exposed to an automobile tire. Core is completely wrapped in a protective polyester sheath, which acts to shield the inner core from direct contact with the skin.
The R.A.T.S. Tourniquet should be kept in the plastic packaging until use. The device should be properly disposed of after use. Inspection of the device should take place before use. Inspection should consist of looking for any fraying of the sheath, cracks in the metal cleat, or any other deformities of the device that could compromise the tourniquet. If any of these conditions exist, do not use and promptly replace the tourniquet.
The R.A.T.S. Tourniquet is guaranteed to be free of defects or we'll replace it for free!
When properly applied, the R.A.T.S. Tourniquet is a safe
and effective device for controlling life-threatening hemmoraghing . Consult an EMS professional for proper training on any and all tourniquet use. Do not apply over solid objects. Read all directions and understand proper use before any attempt to render aid. If used due to trauma, go to the nearest hospital immediately.
We guarantee that each R.A.T.S. Tourniquet you buy from us is 100% genuine, so you don't waste your time guessing.
Product is well made and easy to use even one handed. Can use on all body parts and love the ability to use on my animals if need be. Hope to never have to use it!
Very strong and straight forward
Small, easy to carry, can be used on dogs. Hope I never need it.
The RATS Gen II is an awesome supplemental TQ that can be carried easily and is extremely affordable. The RATS is an easily taught and most importantly, highly retainable once the technique is learned.
I was skeptical when I first saw the RATS and was pleased when I finally decided to give them a try. No excuse for not having a TQ with you 24/7 when outside the home. I carry it everywhere: Workouts, Biking, Hiking, to Church, Shopping, Dining out, and when instructing on the range. As a retired SF 18Z I wish these had been available during my service (1980-2003). TQs save lives, period!
Great invention and concept.
