When work began on the C-A-T® GEN 7, every element that defines a tourniquet designed for combat use was taken into consideration. The challenge was to find the best, most forward-looking way possible to enhance performance and maximize application success. Leveraging input from after-action reviews, researchers, a material scientists and the end-user, they were able to create the most advanced C-A-T® to date. Every component of the C-A-T® GEN 7 is optimized for performance and reliability.

The C-A-T® GEN 7 has a single routing buckle system that (1) allows for extremely fast application and effective slack removal (2) Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications.

The patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army's Institute of Surgical Research.
