Achieving full blood vessel occlusion is the first step in stabilizing a patient affected by a traumatic limb injury, and doing this in the shortest time possible gives the highest probability of successfully saving a life. Researched and developed at MIT with input from soldiers, physicians, and paramedics, the THOR TQ relies on key technologies to achieve rapid, intuitive and easy one-hand self application. Application is even faster when a responder uses both hands to apply the tourniquet to a victim.
Affords substantial mechanical advantage
for efficient occlusion of blood flow from injury.
Allows for rapid encirclement of a trapped or mangled limb. The device is ready for application to a free limb out of the package.
EASY AS 1-2-3
Pull the quick release tag, pull hard on the
D-ring, and lift the ratchet.
Patent pending strap routing the smoothest cinch on the market to rapidly clamp down tight on an injured limb with 2:1 mechanical advantage. https://www.thortq.com/
