This is the current issue bandage for all US army Soldiers, and its innovative design allows a person to apply the bandgae to themselves with one hand, something few others can claim.
The Emergency Bandage consolidates numerous treatment equipment into a single unit and provide in one device:
Non-adherent pad. Eliminating the risk of causing pain and having the wound re-opened upon removal of the bandage.
Pressure Applicator. Creating the immediate direct pressure to the wound site.
Secondary Sterile Dressing. Keeping the wound area clean and maintaining the pad and pressure on the wound firmly in place, including immobilization of the injured limb or body part.
Closure Bar. Enabling closure and fixation of the Emergency Bandage at any point, on all parts of the body: no pins and clips, no tape, no velcro, no knots.
Quick and easy application and Self-application. Designed with the end-user in mind; for the first-aid trained and the lay care-giver.
Significant per treatment time and cost savings.
