First Care Products Ltd. (a portfolio company of Persys Medical) announced the completion of a partnership agreement with M.A.S. Med Global Ltd., to develop and manufacture the ADAM Tourniquet, the first fully automated pneumatic tourniquet.
The ADAM Tourniquet combines state-of-the-art technology with pneumatics to create the first smart tourniquet. With a simple one-handed operation, it is applied, locked, and activated. A self-regulating valve controls the device’s pneumatic component, which inflates the tourniquet maintaining an optimal pressure for vascular occlusion. The ADAM Tourniquet communicates with hospital systems by wirelessly transmitting the patient’s vital signs and location.

“With the increasing global demand for bleeding control solutions for a wider range of caregivers, we expect the ADAM tourniquet system to become a key device in the field of trauma injuries. The ADAM tourniquet’s innovative features coupled with its ease of use, make it an optimal choice for law enforcement, the military, rescue agencies, public facilities, and more.” – Roee Madai, Chief Executive Office of First Care Products and Managing Director of PerSys Medical International.
“Emergency events such as automobile accidents, natural disasters, and terror attacks may happen in our daily life. The first responder in these emergency situations might be a non-professional bystander in the area. If available, a simple device to control bleeding can be a lifesaver. The ADAM Tourniquet is an intelligent device, which can easily be used by trained first responders as well as untrained civilians to save lives.” – Professor Gad Shaked, a Military Physician and Head of Trauma department at Soroka Hospital (Be’er-Sheva, Israel).
