New technology to reduce blood loss after injury
When a critical injury to an arm or leg results in intense blood loss, an emergency tourniquet must be applied. Through innovative solutions, competence in industrialisation and eco-design, Semcon in Norway is supporting health tech company Aristeia in the development of its unique tourniquet for bleeding control.
Aristeia’s patented solution is easy and quick to use, providing a market leading pressure distribution thanks to the geared pull cord mechanism, the robust strap guide, and the on-device user instructions. The optimised pressure distribution reduces pain and discomfort.
Semcon is collaborating with Aristeia to advance the performance and design of the startup’s current Gen4 prototype as well as exploring the best manufacturing procedures for serial production. The prototype will be ready for testing in November 2021. Aristeia is a startup that is partly funded by Innovation Norway and The Research Council of Norway.Read more about Aristeia
