The Urgent Need for Tourniquets

During the war time, whether a wounded person lives or dies can depend on a simple device: a tourniquet. But due to a global shortage, many Ukrainian soldiers and civilians lack this essential life-saving tool. Once injured, a person has as little as three minutes to stop bleeding. This project aims to change the outcome of these three minutes.

Our Mission

We make and donate high-quality tourniquets for the Ukrainian soldiers and civilians, so that more lives can be saved. Our tourniquets are already being used on the front lines. This project is Open Source. We openly share project models, documentation, and our know-how. We sew primarily in Ukraine to empower local communities.

We are an international team of volunteers: medical professionals, engineers, students, and all those motivated to help in this crisis. We cooperate with volunteers at the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv (Faculty of Applied Sciences). We develop and test tourniquet hardware, 3D print tourniquet parts, coordinate production, ensure tourniquets’ quality, and distribute them directly to people in need.

We need your help to produce and donate tourniquets. Together we can ensure that more Ukrainian heroes can survive and reunite with their families. We accept donations and your voluntary 3D printing.

What makes our emergency tourniquet?

Testing


[EMERGENCY USE ONLY]

Our tourniquet is not yet certified. The use of non-certified tourniquets is allowed in Ukraine.

Please always use a TCCC-certified tourniquet,
if you have access to such a device.
