Neural TourniquetTM

The Neural TourniquetTM is a medical device that reduces bleeding due to child birth, trauma, and hemophilia.

The Neural Tourniquet delivers an electrical signal to the vagus nerve which travels to the spleen, resulting in the priming of blood platelets. When they come into contact with damaged tissue, primed platelets initiate clot formation more rapidly than unprimed platelets.

Preclinical studies have shown that the Neural Tourniquet can reduce blood loss due to trauma by 50% and in hemophilia by 70% following a single treatment lasting only a few minutes.
