”In a world dominated by digitization, artificial intelligence and apps, to experience an innovation within something as fundamental as facilitating blood sampling, feels wonderful.
A common problem with a brilliant solution!"

” As a healthcare professional, it's always stressful if you fail with a blood draw. Especially in home care where you don’t have a colleague to ask for help, which means that you have to rebook a visit for the next day. Sometimes it's acute samples, then it's even more stressful. With this new tourniquet, I really feel much more confident. I now have control over the pressure and get better veins, which have helped me succeed on my first attempts.”

"This innovative tourniquet gives better vein dilation and less risk of failed IV attempts, leading to higher safety and less suffering for our patients.

Also using the same tourniquet between patients increases the risk of cross-contamination, which in the worst case scenario can lead to the spread of multiresistant bacteria. Now we don't have to!"

AN OLD PROBLEM

Intravenous access is the most common invasive procedure in healthcare. Every year there are over 6 billion attempts at gaining IV access in the U.S. and in Europe. But despite being so common IV attempts often fails, causing unnecessary pain and huge costs.

Suboptimal tourniquet pressure results in worse vein visibility, palpability, and size - the most important addressable factors for successful IV access.

Today’s tourniquets apply inconsistent pressure, which contribute to failed attempts and inconsistent patient care.

A NEW SOLUTION

Smart Tourniquet’s award-winning force sensor technology allows users to apply optimal objective pressure, irrespective of the clinician’s level of experience. 

Smart Tourniquet is the first tourniquet to introduce reproducible tourniquet pressure, which lets clinicians reliably achieve optimal conditions.

Optimal pressure means greater and faster dilation of veins, which increases the chance for successful intravenous access.
