Hemostatic device developer Z-Medica said today it inked a 3 year, $2.7 million deal to supply the New York City police department with QuikClot belt trauma kits.
The QuikClot belt trauma kit contains the company’s QuikClot combat gauze, a tourniquet, compression bandage and gloves for controlling bleeding in emergency situations, the Wallingford, Conn.-based company said.
“Our products have been battlefield tested and deployed with active military personnel in war zones for years. In the United States, QuikClot has become a standard product now used by law enforcement, emergency services and hospitals,” president & CEO Stephen Fanning said in a press release.
Z-Medica touted the deal as the “largest standardization of advanced bleeding control kits ever deployed by a single city,” and expects training and deployment of the kits in early 2017.
