The SWAT Tourniquet (Stretch Wrap And Tuck Tourniquet) was developed for the high speed communities of Law Enforcement and Special Operations Teams that needed a light, quick, and easy to use tourniquet that could be applied easily to oneself. The SWAT-T was the answer and has been saving lives ever since. It can also be placed in tougher spots on the body than a regular tourniquet. This tourniquet can also function as a compression bandage. Simply check the symbols on the wrap to determine proper tension for use as either a tourniquet or compression bandage.
