The ITClamp™ Hemorrhage Control System, ITC’s first product, is a temporary wound closure device to control severe bleeding within seconds of a penetrating injury. The ITClamp seals the edges of a wound closed to create a temporary pool of blood under pressure, which forms a stable clot until the wound can be surgically repaired. No comparable product exists in the point-of-injury space, solving an unmet medical need.
- Fast and effective – ~3-5 seconds to apply for fluid and airtight seal of the skin.
- Versatile – can be used in nearly every traumatic injury scenario
- Intuitive – requires only minimal training and gross motor skills
- Compact, light and durable – each ITClamp measures less than 2 by 2 inches
Currently, the technology that exists to address hemorrhage includes tourniquets, direct pressure and hemostatic agents. These options are appropriate for various types of injuries but none offer the versatility to address multiple types of traumatic injuries with one device.
