The Canadian Navy, Dr. Dennis Filips a trauma surgeon was inspired — by a simple hair clip — to design a medical clamp that can stop traumatic wound bleeding in a matter of 3 seconds. This novel technology device is going to hit the market in multiple countries later this year.
The ITClamp will “level the playing field for everybody,” Filips recently told the Edmonton Journal. (His firm, Innovative Trauma Care, is based in Edmonton.) “It wouldn’t matter if you were a medic or soldier, this idea is just simple, and anyone could self-treat or treat a buddy within seconds of the injury.”
