Honestly I don't write reviews often. The manufacturer marketed this as for a pediatric patient. I field tested on myself full strength and then on a 3 year old until she start to complain of pain. On me it did stop a pulse so it works. But the the nylon under the ratchet mechanism pinches the skin. I would think that would cause tissue damage to the pinched skin if actually applied where a SOF-T or CAT would not. I might still need to understand how to apply this as this could be my error. But on the surface, this would be a no-go for me to deploy in an emergency but would use if nothing else was available. Considering returning for something else.
Great product. Simple to use. Fast application. Proficiency with minimal training and practice. Only tourniquet designed for pediatric use... and works just as well on the thin elderly. Love it as much as their adult version tourniquet.
When I teach tac med, I always show this along with the other tourniquets on the market.
