The SOF® Tourniquet, OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage, and RISE™ were selected by a panel of judges made up of emergency medical services (EMS) product specialists, physicians, educators, administrators and paramedics. Judges reviewed products that deliver optimal emergency medical care to sick and injured patients and provide EMS agencies a more innovative, safe and efficient approach.
“We constantly strive for innovation and functionality with products that solve problems for the warfighter, professional first responder and civilians alike,” said Will Wennberg, CEO of TacMed Solutions. “We are always looking to incorporate feedback from our users to improve upon our existing products as well. With our recent product launches of the SOF-T, OLAES Hemostatic and the RISE Splint, we were able to achieve just that. We are delighted JEMS recognized this and are honored to have been chosen for this prestigious award.”
Products were evaluated based on the following categories:
- Ease of use
- Need in the EMS setting
The SOF® Tourniquet, OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage, and RISE™ were selected as a Hot Product after the EMS Today Hot Products review team reviewed and rated dozens of products.
JEMS Editor Emeritus A.J. Heightman said: “To earn the title of a JEMS Hot Product, a product has to be innovative and practical. Submissions this year were truly revolutionary and highly functional. That shows our industry is keeping pace with the current science of emergency medicine and companies are developing or upgrading products to stay ahead of the curve.”
