RapidStop® Tourniquet

The RapidStop ® tourniquet which was launched in August 2019 and available in three colours, orange, black or blue for training needs has become the tourniquet of choice for many professional frontline organisations and their training teams, such as the Metropolitan Police. The RapidStop® features a versatile design that is very easy to use and has a simple ratchet action allowing it to be very quickly applied on a patient or self-applied using only gross motor skills. We have extensively tested it and feel that it is much easier to use and more effective than others on the market, in fact if joining us on any of our high risk first aid training courses you will be introduced to and use RapidStop ® tourniquet in your training.

The RapidStop® Tourniquet 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.

The RapidStop® Tourniquet achieves full occlusion reliably and rapidly. It requires only gross motor control, allowing self-application to be readily possible. The RapidStop® Tourniquet is appropriate for controlling haemorrhage for injuries to both the arms and legs.

An individual who has sustained an injury to the arm or a leg and / or fully severed either the brachial, radial or ulnar artery has a window of approximately 60 seconds to stabilise the limb before decreasing blood pressure renders the individual unconscious. Shock can set in even sooner. Achieving full occlusion in the shortest time possible is critical. Faster application means the injured are stabilised sooner and/or more victims can be saved.

In places where people work within higher risk activities, such as on a construction sites, Renewable energy sites, Tree surgeons, highways operatives, manufacturing sites or distribution warehouses as such examples, then the RapidStop® Tourniquet should be at hand to mitigate the risk of death through serious limb injury in the workplace.
