This UK entry is in the
international James Dyson Award category … the shortlist will be announced in
October … regardless, I think that this invention will be taken up by the
medical world, particularly first responders.
|Rapid Emergency Actuating Tamponade
The React (Rapid Emergency Actuating Tamponade) device is undergoing medical testing and could so easily save hundreds of lives a year – in so many parts of the world – once it is approved.
Joseph Bentley from the
University of Loughborough is the young inventor … and leads the continued
development of this product …
Wound management is
notoriously difficult, while the patient needs urgent help - the normal process
is slow, and worse for the patient very painful. The React has been proved to stop the
bleeding from knife wounds quickly … while it is also suitable for wounds in
cavities like the abdomen.
There’s a simple
application procedure, whereby the device is automated inflated … the Tamponade
can be in place and stop haemorrhage in under a minute – a life saver.
