Based on proven surgical tourniquet designs, the EMT completely stops blood flow, is fast and simple to self-apply, and requires minimal training.

Trial studies determined “the EMT pneumatic tourniquet was wider and thus significantly less painful than any device tested and is much less likely to induce nerve damage compared to either of the strap tourniquets (SOFTT and CAT).” The EMT worked in 100% of all trials.
