Phokus Research Group Launches Updated Website And Education Division

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

At Warrior East I had a chance to catch up with Phokus Research Group. They’ve made some improvements we can all appreciate.

First off, they recently released an updated version of their website with special attention ti their most popular products.

Additionally, Phokus launched a New Education Division. When you think about it, it’s a natural progression. They’ve adapted to the changing landscape of society by introducing medical products into new markets for several years now. For instance, kits specifically for institutional use during active shooter and other mass casualty scenarios. In an emergency, such life saving gear would be used by amateurs. Naturally, they are going to require instruction on how to employ the gear. Consequently, Phokus has partnered with best-in-class training companies to ensure even the most inexperienced truly understand how to succeed in a life threatening situation. They’ve started by focusing on three areas that they already specialize in: Bleeding Control, Active Shooter, Emergency Preparedness. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this expand.

Phokus Research Group – Under Armor Overview Training Video

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

It’s not enough to have a first aid or trauma kit, you have to be familiar with its contents and know how to use it. All too often, units and agencies have to forethought to buy and issue kits, but not everyone in the rank and file gets in on the new equipment training during initial issue. Phokus Research Group created this “Under Armor Overview Video” to help alleviate the situation.

MDM – Name This “Accessible Under Armor Trauma Kit” Contest from Phokus Research Group

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Phokus Research Group developed this Dual Zipper Under Armor Deployment version of the Sons Traima Kit for those units who need to be able to access the components of their medical items. In addition to the ability to maintain the kits when items expire, the dual zipper also allows units to update their components with new items. It still fits in the late pocket of the Armor Vest so they’ve also introduced a split seam so the items stay in place.

It’s a great product, but the name is a mouthful and more of a nomenclature than a cool name. I suggested Phokus allow the SSD readers to name it. So here’s your shot to be a marketing genius. Phokus will reward the best name, judged by them, two fully loaded versions of this kit as well as two Shield kits.

To enter, follow these rules:
1. In the comments section of THIS, and only THIS, article on SSD, share your proposed name. Only entries here are eligible to win. Of more than ine person submits a name, the first use gets credit for it.

2. Comments are open from now until 1600 Zulu on 30 September 2016 (that’s this Friday at High Noon Eastern Daylight Time).

3. Use any alias you want to post but be sure to use a valid email address since that’s how we’ll contact the winner.

4. Phokus Research Group will select the name from the comments we receive.

5. One entry per email address. We will delete entries that violate this policy.

6. Must be 18 to enter. Void where prohibited.

By the way, Phokus products are available for unit and agency purchase from ADS Inc.

ADS Inc / Phokus Research Group / Cardiac Science – AED and Bleeding Control Pack

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

At Warrior East, I found out that ADS Inc, Phokus Research Group and Cardiac Science have teamed up to offer an AED and Bleeding Control Pack solution for wall mount installation.  Not that many years ago, Automated External Defibrillators were only used by medical personnel and it was rare to find one outside of a medical facility.  Today, they are more sophisticated and found everywhere.  They are used to restart the heart after a sudden cardiac arrest which can strike those with a variety of conditions.

Unfortunately, mass casualty events such as mass shootings have become more common over the past few years so it seems obvious to combine a Cardiac Science AED with Phokus Research Group’s bleeding control packs.

In addition to the Cardiac Science AED, the box also contains a kit filled with Individual Bleeding Control Kits consisting of Quickclot dressing, Tourniquet, Z-fold sterile frog gauze, chest seals, medical frog tape, nitrile gloves and a rescue blanket. What’s more, the wall mounted boxes can be alarmed to alert medical and security personnel when they are used.

Available for agency and unit purchase through ADS Inc. 

Warrior West – Phokus Research Groups Helps ‘Stop The Bleed’

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

DHS has a new campaign called ‘Stop the Bleed‘ and Phokus Research Group has introduced a new line of products for institutional use. Phokus works with the user group to create bundles of their Individual Active Shooter Throw Kits in different configurations. The design is Modular. The Throw Kits attach to the larger bags via Velcro allowing a wide variety of load outs and quick deployment when they are needed. Additionally, each Throw Kit is poly bagged with zipper entry so you not only can see what’s in it, but also maintain it.

For example, the kit above is a bit more extensive and offers additional tools aside from the Individiual Active Shooter Throw Kits. It could be stored at an entry control point.

This is the Active Shooters Bag which might go in a patrol car or stored at a central location on each floor of a building. It can be hung when needed and the six Throw Kits quickly put into action.

Each Individiual Active Shooter Throw Kits contains:

-1 x Tourniquet (CAT or SOFTT-W)
-1 x Combat Gauze
-1 x Chest Seal
-1 x Frog Guaze (Z-fold nonwoven gauze)
-1 x Frog Tape (6 x 2″x9″ strips of medical tape)
-1 x Pair of Nitrile Gloves
