Innovative hemorrhage control solutions
US-based company Compression Works specialises in the research and development of severe hemorrhage control devices. Compression Works’ novel AAJT-S™ device is used by militaries around the world, trauma centers, rural emergency departments, EMS, government agencies and law enforcement agencies.
Abdominal Aortic and Junctional Tourniquet - Stabilized™
AAJT-S™ is an innovative, life-saving device that provides stable and complete occlusion of blood flow to the lower extremities, pelvis, and upper extremities.
Solution for Junctional Hemorrhages and Pelvic Hemorrhages
Proven equivalent to Zone 3 REBOA
Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) technique requires placing a flexible catheter into the femoral artery, navigating it to the aorta and inflating a balloon at its tip.
Research has shown that the AAJT-S™ capabilities are equivalent to REBOA in Zone 3 of the aorta, while the invasive risks of the REBOA procedure are eliminated and no medical background is needed to use the device.
Effective at junctional sites
To control bleeding in the pelvis, groin, and legs
FDA cleared for all junctional hemorrhage sites and can remain on for up to four hours in these locations
The only junctional tourniquet documented to have saved human life in upper and lower junctional indications
Approved to stabilize the pelvis
Zone 3 - REBOA
Proven equivalent of Zone 3 REBOA
