About Tramedic®

Our Tramedic® trauma kit line was developed to bring life-saving treatments to any level of responder available for immediate action. By increasing the effectiveness of medical material at the point of injury and simplifying the use of the equipment, we have changed the way the world plans for emergencies and mass casualty situations. Our team has a varied background ranging from pharmaceuticals to military medicine. This broad range of experience allows us to assist with medical planning, custom kit development, and training.  We come from communities that thrive on challenge and look forward to helping you overcome whatever challenges you face.

The Tramedic® Difference

In today’s world you never know when a serious injury will occur. Being prepared for when it happens doesn’t have to be scary, overly expensive or difficult to manage. The goal of Tramedic® is to place real life saving treatments in regular people’s hands because sometimes injuries are so serious you don’t have time to wait for help. Tramedic® accomplishes this by incorporating a mix of intuitive products, simple instructions and effective training videos to ensure you and your organization are prepared for the worst.

Components

When you open a Tramedic® kit, you won’t find a box full of Band-aids and a claim that the kit can treat 50 people. You will find top quality life-saving devices that are simple and effective in buying time for critically injured people: Items like a tourniquet used by soldiers to stop severe bleeding, bandages to cover serious cuts and dressings to treat someone that is badly burned – truly life saving devices that can easily be used with minimal instructions.

Just because we take care of the big stuff doesn’t mean we don’t help you with the little things. There is also a sub-kit for treating minor things such as scrapes and removing splinters in every Tramedic® kit.

Instructions

Every kit and sub-kit includes a detailed set of instructions. Tramedic® doesn’t just tell you how to use the product; it tells you when to use the product. A color coded flow chart leads you to the proper kit ensuring the most life threatening injuries are treated first. Once the kit is open, individual component instructions are matched to the product by color and number guiding you step by step through the treatment process without having to flip through the pages of a book.

Training and Education

We all know this is serious stuff, but by offering online training videos in a format that you can watch with people of all ages takes the edge off and allows you to educate the most squeamish or sensitive members of your staff, family or organization. The online training site also provides the ability to assign videos to individuals and to track their progress on a training manager dashboard. This greatly reduces the workload on an organization’s safety manager and simplifies the implementation process. For more information, visit our training page.

Kit Tracking

Since conducting inventory and tracking numerous small items is such a tedious task, we decided we would do this for you. Tramedic® will track every item in your kit by lot number and expiration date and we will send you an email notification when you have something that is about to expire. Currently, the Tramedicube®, Tramedic® Cabinet Kit, and Tramedic® Wall Kit are able to be tracked.

Security

We also took steps to ensure you will know if someone has tampered with your kit. Serial numbered tamper evident seals are used on the closure mechanism of Tramedic® kits. If someone opens a kit to take a Band-aid, you will know.

No one scenario is alike and when an accident happens the severity can range across the board. Having the tools and training to effectively respond to almost any incident is the difference between first aid and truly effective first aid.

About Tramedic® and Tactical Medical Solutions®

Tactical Medical Solutions® is a global leading developer and manufacturer of pre-hospital medical gear for the tactical and civilian world. We were founded in 2003 by a Special Forces medic who created the SOF® Tourniquet. Our tourniquet is now one of only two windlass tourniquets approved for use by the Department of Defense, one of only two tourniquets approved for use by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care, and is the tourniquet of choice for the American Red Cross. While our original purpose was supporting the military, environments changed and TacMed progressed in to servicing law enforcement, fire, EMS, rescue, and now even civilians. As a result, our product line has expanded greatly and is constantly evolving.

We currently have over 2,000 products available and a presence in 70 countries around the world. Here at home, we service 7 of the top 10 police departments, including the NYPD and LAPD, as well as major fire and EMS agencies. Seeing a need to increase casualty management capabilities for our customers, we created the brand Rescue Craft™, which combines casualty care and rescue into safe and simple equipment for rescue personnel. We also service civilian audiences such as all municipal buildings in the city of Dallas, NFL stadiums, Marriott hotels, churches, and public and private schools across the country through Tramedic®, our line of trauma kits developed for the everyday citizen. In addition to providing all of these customers equipment designed specifically for them, we provide kit customization and a complete knowledge management system that offers education and training to match.

Stop the Bleed

Tactical Medical Solutions® supports the national Stop the Bleed campaign by providing a complete solution to getting the necessary gear into the public’s hands with the Tramedic® Response System. The campaign aims to empower bystanders and civilians to act quickly in an emergency situation. Stop the Bleed focuses on the following treatments: 1) the application of steady pressure to a bleeding site, and 2) the application of a tourniquet should the bleeding continue after compression. For more information on the Stop the Bleed campaign, visit http://www.dhs.gov/stopthebleed.

Studies

The Tramedic® Response System has attained its lab-tested designation from The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at The University of Southern Mississippi. This evaluation provides an assessment of the Tramedic® system by NCS4 and subject matter experts in the sports safety and security industry. These experts included law enforcement, public safety, and emergency medical service professionals who evaluated Tramedic® in three segments: training, feasibility, and kit contents and instructions. This evaluation found the Tramedic® Response System to perform above expected standards in all three areas and to effectively equip first responders with the necessary emergency medical supplies.
