SOF Tactical Tourniquet- WideRegular price $46.15 Save $-46.15
Gen 4 NOW available in Black, Blue, Rescue Orange, Tan & Red.
The SOFTT-W Tourniquet is a life-saving device used to control massive extremity haemorrhage. With a true 1.5 inch tourniquet strap the SOFTT-W provides superior compression than most standard tourniquets. High strength, light weight aluminium components are used in critical areas of function ensuring reliability in the most challenging of circumstances and on the largest of limbs.
The SOFTT-W does not rely on any velcro. The high strength hook & buckle interface was designed for security, strength and ease of application.
The design allows for rapid routing of the tourniquet strap while eliminating the need for re-threading the webbing through a buckle. By eliminating the requirement to re-route the webbing the tourniquet is easier to use when operating under stress and reduces application time, both of which can result in reduced levels of blood loss and better quality patient care.
This broader compression pattern allows for increased patient comfort and additional arterial compression.
Used by numerous Australian Police Forces and Ambulance Services.
Snake Bite BandageRegular price $9.95 Save $-9.95
TacMed Australia is now stocking the AeroForm Snake Bite Bandage.
This bandage was purposely designed for the Pressure Immobilisation Technique (PIT), which is used for the treatment of all Australian Snake and Funnel Webbed Spider bites, Blue Ringed Octopus and Cone Shell sting.
The AeroForm Snakebite Bandage is 10cm wide and longer (3.5M) than most crepe or elastic bandages. This bandage stretches to an incredible 10m which is sufficient length to bandage a large adult leg. The unique stitching technology ensures the correct pressure is evenly applied to the entire limb. Both of these requirements are a must for the effective treatment of snakebite.
This bandage is a definite must-have item in a remote or wilderness first aid kit!

Aquatic Trauma KitRegular price $76.95 Save $-76.95
The Aquatic Trauma Kit (ATK) has been developed using products tried and tested on the battlefields of Iraq & Afghanistan.
Used in the treatment of life-threatening bleeding in an aquatic environment, the Aquatic Trauma Kit can be used as a stand-alone kit or as a supplemental kit to standard first aid kits.
A casualty with major injuries (ie Shark Bite or Boat Propellor Injury) can bleed out in minutes if not treated quickly and effectively. Most conventional first aid kits do not have the appropriate equipment for controlling life-threatening bleeding and this is where the ATK comes in....
The Aquatic Trauma Kit comes complete with a large military style trauma dressing, an arterial tourniquet for life-threatening limb bleeds, an emergency blanket for the prevention of hypothermia and gloves and resuscitation face shield for personal protection.
The ATK is compact, rugged and vacuum sealed to protect the contents from water & sand. A must have for the boat, dive bag or car glove box.
