Junctional and inguinal bleeding is a significant and challenging problem on the battlefield. Inventors have developed new types of tourniquets, including the Abdominal Aortic Tourniquetâ„¢ (AAT) and the Combat Ready Clampâ„¢ (CRoC) to address these abdominal and pelvic injuries. While these hemorrhage control technologies have been developed, validated, and approved for use, training systems that teach and refresh skills related to these technologies have not been developed. These training systems are vital because these skills can be difficult to train and are infrequently used. To address these needs, a sensor-enabled manikin was designed. Using the sensor data, the different phases of applying the tourniquet were captured and key performance was measured. Copyright © 2016 The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System
