The newest evolution of the SOF® Tourniquet sets the benchmark for prehospital tourniquets. Purposeful upgrades allow for smoother and faster one-handed and two-handed applications for the most effective bleeding control. It easily slides over an arm or leg, and it unclips at the buckle to fit around hard-to-reach areas, such as a trapped limb.
Noteworthy Upgrades in the New SOF® Tourniquet:
1) Performance Compression Band
Completely redesigned webbing maximizes compression during the application process. At a true 1.5″ width, the new performance material glides through the Rugged Buckle for quick, snag-free operation and minimizes loss of pressure over time after application.
2) Slack Indicator Wedge
Stitched into the Performance Compression Band below the windlass. The contrasting wedge offers a visual confirmation you have pulled all excess slack from the band. This is a critical step for proper tourniquet application and results in fewer windlass rotations required to reach occlusion.
3) Rugged Buckle
Engineered to remove excess slack in a single fluid motion. The buckle’s shape stabilizes the Performance Compression Band at any angle of engagement. The new Rugged Buckle is an advanced, lightweight composite design with superior strength over previous versions.
OLAES® Modular Bandage
The OLAES® Modular Bandage is the newest generation of trauma bandages and is advantageous for all levels of care providers.
Packed with features such as 3 meters of gauze, a removable occlusive plastic sheet behind the OLAES® trauma dressing pad, and a pressure cup that can also act as a rigid eye shield, the advanced capabilities of the medical bandage are tucked neatly away and can be utilized if required or simply ignored. No hooks or clips to confuse or delay care. Velcro® ‘Control’ strips prevent the elastic roll from accidentally unraveling and secure the emergency bandage throughout the application process.
This OLAES® dressing is designed with direct input from some of the most experienced combat medics in the world, no detail has been left out. From the adhesive ‘brakes’ on the elastic bandage that prevent accidental unrolling to the zig-zag-packed gauze that easily feeds from the tactical bandage, this is the most comprehensive feature-packed bandage available without any added confusion.
No other medical dressing bandage offers so much versatility in such a small package. Cover minor wounds, apply truly effective pressure dressings, apply occlusive dressings, and have the ability to pack severe wounds with one OLAES® Modular Trauma Bandage.
During high-stress situations, such as those involving casualties, stress effects on human performance often affect the fine motor skills of individuals. This makes simple tasks such as bandage application more difficult and time-consuming. By creating a pressure bandage where the application involves only gross motor skills, no direction changes around hooks or bars, the OLAES® Modular Bandage significantly offers a simpler and more effective solution in bandage dressing options.
The elastic combat dressing simply requires wrapping where the elastic stays flat instead of turning into a cord. Control of the elastic roll is maintained by the ‘Control Strips’ should the elastic be dropped. You no longer have to open or carry gauze and a bandage separately as both are included in the same package.
A True Pressure Cup:
The unique pressure cup generates true focused pressure on top of the wound site where it is required, not circumferential pressure like an ineffective tourniquet. The generated focused pressure helps occlude damaged vessels at the wound site where it is needed. It also reduces the amount of manual pressure required to be held, freeing up the care provider to treat other injuries or casualties.
The pressure cup can also be removed and used as a rigid eye shield for the treatment of ocular injuries as recommended in CoTCCC guidelines.

OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage
The OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage combines the OLAES® Modular Bandage with the HemCon® ChitoGauze® PRO to create the most comprehensive trauma bandage for multiple injury profiles. Both proven life-saving devices are now together in a single, easily accessible package to increase any level of pre-hospital care provider’s treatment capabilities while reducing application times and saving space in your kit. One of few CoTCCC recommended hemostatic dressings, ChitoGauze® PRO features chitosan as the hemostatic agent, is X-Ray detectable, and is located inside the bandage’s wound pad for rapid access at the point of injury

4) Velcro® Control Strips
- Built-in Velcro® Control Strips stationed along the bandage’s elastic wrap prevent accidental unrolling during application.
5) Elastic Wrap
- Secures the gauze and wound pad to the injury site and assists in maintaining consistently applied pressure.
6) Securing Clip

The K9 Tourniquet has been engineered to work effectively on tapered anatomy, such as the leg of a K9, and is designed to be placed high on the limb. It has integrated traction technology that prevents the dog tourniquet from slipping down the animal’s leg, which would result in a loss of compression. The slippage is amplified when the animal is started to be moved and extricated. Slippage is a common occurrence when tourniquets or pressure dressings designed for humans are used on such tapered anatomy. The K9 Tourniquet addresses these issues and does so with a quick application time. *** Not for human use. ***
