Challenging the current standard of care which promotes the use of expensive, bulky, and inaccessible external devices, we have engineered an elegant, low-cost solution capable of stabilizing injury quicker and more flexibly than anything currently available.
Our first-of-its-kind system comprises of an ergonomically fitted, non-restrictive harness coupled with a tourniquet-style direct pressure device. The low-weight system can be worn passively by the user to be deployed following an incident or quickly applied to the user then engaged afterwards. It provides rapid compression of damaged arteries in critical torso- junctional areas that traditional tourniquets cannot reach. Our patented system is able to achieve this by combining the familiar mechanism of a tourniquet with the proven function of a vascular clamp to deliver reliable force that stays unabated in transport.
It is envisioned essentially in two forms:
ARMR is committed to data-driven design and ensuring our products meet the highest standards of reliability and efficacy. To date, initial benchtop, volunteer, and cadaver studies have been conducted to validate the core functionality of our prototypes. In a live volunteer study, when are our system was activated, complete femoral occlusion was achieved and all arterial blood flow to the lower extremities was stopped immediately. In the same study, similar results were seen across arterial points in the upper extremity.
The technology & methodology we've developed provide a number of benefits and advantages for users. Here are a few:
