MPR is proud to announce Innovation Trauma Care's iTclamp™ device is named as a finalist in the 'Critical Care and Emergency Medicine Products' category of the 2016 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA). Winners will be announced on June 14, 2016 at a ceremony held in conjunction with the annual MD&M East Conference in New York City, NY.
Innovative Trauma Care’s® iTClamp™ is a hemorrhage control device for use in the extremities, axilla, inguinal, scalp and neck. The iTClamp™ rapidly controls critical bleeding by closing and sealing the edges of the wound to create a temporary, contained hematoma that is stable until surgical repair. Applied in seconds with minimal pain to the patient, the iTClamp™ is ideal for emergency medical and military applications.
“We are especially proud to have collaborated with ITC, on the development of this important device," Eric Claude, VP of MPR Product Development said. "When ITC came to us with the challenge of making its next generation product more effective from a usability standpoint, and less expensive to manufacture, we were immediately interested. After discovering this product can potentially save countless lives, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to be involved.”
