CORRECT PRESSURE gives larger veins

The amount of pressure applied with a tourniquet determines how much veins dilate. Normal tourniquets apply an unknowable and arbitrary pressure. In contrast, Smart Tourniquet guides users to consistently apply the pressure that has been shown to give the greatest venous dilation, while maintaining patient comfort.

LARGER VEINS MEANS EASIER IV ACCESS  

Getter larger veins that are palpable and visible is important – research has shown that palpability and visibility are key factors for successful IV access.

Smart Tourniquet improves palpability*

Six times more patients with very palpable veins

Halves the number of patients with unpalpable veins

Smart Tourniquet makes 6x more patients have very palpable veins and halves the number of patients with unpalpable veins, compared to a market leading tourniquet.
