Delfi’s unrivalled Emergency & Military Tourniquet is designed to deliver the highest level of tourniquet safety with durable portability. In ground-based tactical situations and first response trauma incidents, the EMT is used as a life-saving haemorrhage control device.
Based on over 40 years of Delfi’s world leading tourniquet technology, the EMT’s wide bladder pneumatic design is proven to completely stop arterial blood-flow on both upper and lower limbs, unlike narrow tourniquets which are often ineffective no matter how tightly they are applied, potentially causing further injury to the limb.
The EMT is fast and simple to self-apply, and requires minimal training, and has been recommended for medics and medic vehicles by the US Army Institute for Surgical Research.
An independent assessment completed by the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) found the EMT to be effective in 100% of all trials. In addition, the EMT was found to be “wider and thus significantly less painful than any device tested and is much less likely to induce nerve damage”, compared to either of the strap tourniquets (SOFTT and CAT).
Intuitive Reliable Design
Durable aluminum clamp and superior materials designed to withstand the elements. No hook or loop is used which can become ineffective if contaminated with mud and dirt especially in field applications
Lightweight and Compact
Space-saving lightweight design ideal for any emergency kit and medical workers on the move. Weight 7.8 oz (220 grams), rolled up size 5 x 2.75 x 2.5 in. (13 x 7 x 6.4 cm)
Speed and Ease
Fast and easy one hand application for self-aid situations and crucial time savings. Easy slip-on design can also be wrapped around if distal end of limb is inaccessible. Requires less than 30 seconds to apply and inflate!
Safe and Rapid Inflation
A pneumatic pump delivers fast and safe tourniquet pressure, inflating only the used length of the bladder until blood flow is stopped
Provides close conformance to a wide range of upper and lower limb shapes and sizes, with a circumference range from 3 in. (8 cm) to 34 in. (86 cm)
A wider 3.5 in. (8.9 cm) bladder width results in the need for lower pressure to fully occlude the limb, making it far less painful and less likely to cause nerve damage
