C.A.T GEN7 Combat Application Tourniquet, Black


C.A.T GEN7 Combat Application Tourniquet

Despite the proven effectiveness of the Combat Application Tourniquet, the new C.A.T GEN7 goes even further toward making it easier and faster to use.


  • A small and lightweight one-handed tourniquet.
  • Quickly controls life-threatening extremity bleeding.
  • Completely occludes arterial blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant haemorrhage. 
  • True circumferential pressure is provided to the extremity via the windlass system with a free moving internal band that the CAT incorporates.
  • Once tightened, the windlass is locked in place when bleeding has ceased.
  • Also has a Velcro Windlass Strap for further securing of the windlass during patient transport. 
  • Colour: Black (Tactical).
  • Pack of 1. 

All six components have been re-designed and improved.

  • 1. Single Routing Buckle – Decreases blood loss, effective slack removal, fewer windlass turns, simplified training with single protocol application standards.
  • 2. Windlass Rod – Increased diameter, enhanced strength, aggressive ribbing improves grip.
  • 3. Windlass Clip – Bilateral beveled entry, rapid windless lock, bilateral buttress, added strength.
  • 4. Windlass Strap – New reinforced strap, grey colour for tactical considerations (black only).
  • 5. Stabilisation Plate – Reinforced, beveled contact bar, improved comfort.
  • 6. Free-moving Internal Band – Patented band within band, truly even distribution of circumferential pressure.
