simplicity, safety and versatility
The T-RING is the world’s first One-Size-Fits-All tourniquet for digits. Designed by a physician, the T-RING provides immediate hemostasis while applying a fraction of the pressure applied by all other available tourniquets. And, being highly conspicuous, it is nearly impossible to forget on a digit. The T-RING’s unique design makes the T-RING faster, safer and easier to use that any other method.
- One Size Fits All
- Simple Slide on Application
- No need to cut, roll, wrap or clamp gloves or Penrose drains
- No need to select from multiple sized commercial bands
Preventing Pressure Injuries
- High pressures cause neurovascular & soft tissue injuries
- Standard of Care: “Never exceed 300 mm HG”
- Penrose drains, surgical gloves and commercial bands all exceed the pressure known to cause injury (Naim, 2008)
Excessive Tourniquet Pressures: Is your method safe (< 300 mm Hg)?
T-RING: A Safe Pressure Every Time
- Adjusts to any digit to apply pressure of 150-165 mm Hg
- Impossible to over-tighten
- T-RING is the only method proven to apply a safe & effective pressure on all digit sizes (Lahham, 2010)
T-RING: Applies ideal pressure on all digit sizes
Smallest Digit (45 mm)
Most common Size (70 mm)
Largest (85 mm)
Preventing the Forgotten Tourniqet
Digit necrosis from a forgotten tourniquet is an uncommon but disastrous complication that has occurred with low profile methods such as surgical gloves & silicon band tourniquets. The T-RING’s high profile and bright color are designed to eliminate this risk.
The T-RING’s ability to instantly stop bleeding without the risks associated with other methods has made it the safest and easiest digit tourniquet used today. It’s low pressure is ideal for patients with neurovascular disease, and the T-RING’s ability to stretch over traumatic flaps & deformities allows its use when rolled on methods are ill advised. The “2 point discriminator” allows quick assessment of nerve injury; while the guaranteed bloodless field is ideal for Topical Laceration Closure™ of digit lacerations.
The T-RING is used by orthopeadic, plastic and hand surgeons; dermatologists, podiatrists, pediatricians, emergency and other primary care providers. It’s benefits has made it the preferred tourniquet for acute injuries and elective procedures in over 1000 facilities in the U.S., and is used in over 30 countries worldwide.
Topical Laceration Closure™
Topical Laceration Closure™ is revolutionizing the management of digit injuries. Compared to suturing, studies show that topical laceration closure:
- is faster, cheeper and easier to use
- reduces pain, anxiety & infection rates
- has a lower complication rate
- greatly reduces follow up visits
- preferred by patients 9:1
NO NEEDLES, NO SUTURES, NO FOLLOW UP
ERCast’s Thumbs Up Review of the T-RING
“A bloodless field is critical in the evaluation and management of digit injuries. The T-RING provides the benefit of tourniquet use, without the risks associated with all other methods.”
“As a hand surgeon, I frequently operate on the thumb or fingers for which control of bleeding is critical . The “T-RING” is ingenious; it provides effective exsanguination and instantly controls bleeding. I congratulate the staff at Precision Medical Devices for designing such a simple, safe, and reliable digital tourniquet.”
As a nail specialist who does a lot of nail surgery, I rely on T-rings for all of my procedures. I love that the device is sterile, super easy to use and most importantly the safest way to achieve hemostasis during my procedures. I highly recommend the T-Ring!
