Developed by a former SOF Medic, the SWAT-T is a multi-function tourniquet and trauma care device. While useful as a tourniquet, the SWAT-T also can be used as a pressure dressing and elastic bandage, and can be applied more rapidly and higher into the groin and axilla than other more traditional tourniquets. The SWAT-T also takes less space, costs lest, and thanks to its intuitive design requires less training than traditional tourniquets. I gotta tell you, I like the SWAT-T. It’s the only occlusive tourniquet that I know about so it can be used as a tourniquet or a pressure dressing.
