2019 Special Operations Medical Association Scientific Assembly

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

I haven’t covered SOMSA for several years due to scheduling conflicts. However, since I was at Fort Bragg this week, I decided to jaunt over to Charlotte to attend this year’s event.

Not only was it well attended, but there were an unprecedented number of vendors. Additionally, those seeking out training have an entire menu of options available.

If you’re in the emergency medicine business, I highly recommend you attend this event in the future and you become a member of SOMA.

SOTECH’s Newest SOF IFAK Innovation

Monday, May 6th, 2019

At the SOMA conference this week SOTECH will be debuting their newest development in their SOF IFAK line – the Rapid First Aid Pack, along with other new developments of SOTECH’s Tactical Medical Modular Care System Generation II. In its latest iteration, SOTECH took its SOF IFAK (circa 2003), narrowed it to a coffin shape and developed a double flapped rip cord no-look opening system. Thus, the zippered pouch could mount to the lower back for one-handed side access much the same as SOTECH’s Viper Flat IFAK system innovation that is now in use around the world. The double flap provides full enclosure retention, quick access, and the ability to easily access contents or to rip the insert out completely. The pouch can be worn lower back on a riggers belt or padded belt, thigh drop, vest or pack.  The internal panel is also set up for speed access while other designs are a morass of elastic loops.

SOTECH will also display improvements to its Medical Assault Combat Belt System allowing for multiple under belt attachments, as well as a new pouch marking system and a new modular medical pouch attachment system. Check out our booth in Charlotte at SOMSA Wednesday and Thursday.
