)-- The American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine (AAUCM), in its goal to provide member benefits which bring high-quality products and services to its members, has joined together with Precision Medical Devices to bring the T-RING digital tourniquet to AAUCM members for use in their Urgent Care clinics.
The T-RING is the world’s fastest, safest and easiest to use digital tourniquet. It was designed by an emergency physician to reduce the high rate of complications related to digit injuries, most often resulting from missed tendon and nerve injuries and missed foreign bodies. The T-RING is the first one-size-fits-all tourniquet for digits, automatically adjusting to the size of any digit to apply a safe and effective pressure every time. The introduction of the T-RING finally offers providers a simple, easy method to minimize risk, manage time and maximize outcomes in a high volume, high risk area of Urgent Care Medicine – the initial evaluation and management of digit injuries.
