Project Title Easy-Go Tourniquet
Project Category Innovation
Abstract The ‘Easy-Go Tourniquet’ is used for blood taking and intravenous cannulation procedure in the healthcare center. At present, the practice of many of the healthcare providers is using the latex glove replacement of tourniquet which is painful for the client and rather unprofessional. The healthcare providers also use the conventional rubber strap as the tourniquet which is quite painful for the client as it needs to be tied on the limbs. While in some settings where the commercialized tourniquet is in use, it easily loses its elasticity and the regulator is easily broken too. In view of all the above problems, Easy-Go Tourniquet is made with stainless steel hooks that are adjustable to various limbs sizes. Made out of elastic fabric, it is more comfortable compared to rubber straps. With few hooks attached to it, the tourniquet is easy to apply and remove. The Easy-Go Tourniquet is also cheap, materials are easily available, light and also reusable besides washable to prevent infection. Furthermore, if any of the hooks is broken, it can easily be replaced without having to change the whole set. It also has high potential to commercialize as it is one of an important tool required in the daily task of the healthcare provider. It is needed by many categories of the healthcare provider, especially doctors, nurses, medical assistants as well as medical laboratory technologists.
