SICH-Tourniquet (Strengthened Individual Combat Hybrid Tourniquet) is a strengthened hybrid of two famous tourniquets. It is achieved through using metal strengthening components. Due to aluminum furniture and special patented adhesive tape, integral structure and telescopic platform, this unique tourniquet stood under double pressure and worked successfully even being dirty from bleeding, from any grease or oil, and it didn’t lose its efficiency at extremely low or high temperature (-40 / +50). The tourniquet did not impact soft tissues at its application. Moreover, it can be applied with just one hand.
In summer 2015 the independent consumers and experts (doctors, volunteers and military people) have conducted extensive testing of tourniquets made by famous Ukrainian producers of those times. Based on the results of testing, SICH-Tourniquet occupied the first place and later it became the official tool for individual packs in the Military Forces of Ukraine, which were packed according to NATO standards, and for packs of Ukrainian National Guard and Police.
