From narescue.com:

Noted as the best prehospital tourniquet in the February 2008 supplement of The Journal of Trauma
The patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. Tests proved that the C-A-T® completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.

The C-A-T® utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The C-A-T®’s unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.

Gen 7 Enhancements:

  • Single routing buckle for faster application, effective slack removal, decreased blood loss, and fewer windlass turns
  • Stronger windlass rod with an increased diameter and improved grip
  • Reinforced windlass clip and highly visible security tab includes a writable area to record the time of application
  • Stabilization plate to minimize pinching
