A tourniquet, at a minimum, is something that we all should carry. However, if you are going to practice successfully applying your tourniquet, you must use a dedicated practice tourniquet and not your "real world" one.

CAT (Gen 7) Trainer

No longer the last resort, the Gen 7 CAT is the most widely-fielded tourniquet in combat theatres. Quick, effective and easy to apply with one or both hands. Single-Use only. Length: 6.5" Width: 2.4" Weight: 2.7 oz. From the North American Rescue website: "The C-A-T® GEN 7 has a single routing buckle system that (1) allows for extremely fast application and effective slack removal (2) Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications. The patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research.

C-A-T® Gen 7 Requirements Driven Enhancements:

Single Routing Buckle

  1. Faster application and effective slack removal resulting in decreased blood loss and fewer windlass turns to achieve arterial occlusion
  2. Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications

Windlass Rod

  1. Increased diameter for enhanced strength
  2. Aggressive ribbing for improved grip

Windlass Clip

  1. Bilateral beveled entry for rapid windlass lock
  2. Bilateral buttress for added strength

Windlass Strap

  1. Sonic welded to clip for constant contact
  2. Color changed to Gray for tactical considerations (Black C-A-T Only)

Stabilization Bar

  1. Reinforced, beveled contact bar maintains the plate's integrity and decreases skin pinching"

    great training aid

    Don't use your actual TQs for practice. I have put the practice TQ through hundreds of reps, tightening, resetting, stretching, etc, still works like new and maintains the integrity of my first line gear. 10/10 recommend.

    Confidence booster

    Posted by Chris on Apr 12th 2021

    I’ve been using this to get my 9 year old daughter to learn how to apply a tourniquet at random moments. I’ll just toss it to her and tell her where I’m “injured” and start to give her some pressure to get it on quick. Just in a week or so of doing that her confidence has started to increase and she is starting to realize that if something bad happens while we are hunting or out riding horses she has the capability to help solve the problem.

    Practice with the same product you trust your life to

    Posted by Jake on Nov 9th 2020

    What is the point in buying medical gear that you are going to trust your life with and then not practice? What is the point of buy gear and then weakening it through practice? Buy the good stuff and buy this. Practice with the blue one and stuff the other ones everywhere for that terrible day when you need it.

    Train to live

    Owning a tourniquet is useless if you don't train to use one - training with your carry tourniquet degrades its performance potential. Purchase a trainer and use it.

    Great training tool

    Posted by David Biewer on May 11th 2020

    The Training CAT is well made, I was able to use it as soon as I opened the package. Very good instructions. I will recommend this to coworkers, family and friends.

    Great Trainer

    Posted by Able3pilot on Jan 25th 2020

    Excellent trainer. Used to teach wife basics of TQ application. Both to others (mainly me) and herself. We recently relocated to a more rural area where EMS response time is minimum of 30 minutes. (When seconds count, they’re minutes away). Trainer has given her the confidence to apply properly and use for real, if ever necessary.

    SOFF-W Training Tourniquet

    Posted by Steve Hood on Dec 4th 2017

    This is the same as the regular tourniquet except for the color. You do not want to use your main tourniquet to practice with, so having a 'trainer' is the best practice. Bright blue color makes it easy to keep track of. Highly recommend.
