Medical Device Firm iTraumaCare Names Combat Medical Systems Exclusive Distributor for Military Market in US
August 14, 2013

[August 14, 2013 - SAN ANTONIO] iTraumaCare, an early-stage medical device firm focused on developing traumatic injury solutions for first responder and military medicine applications, has selected Combat Medical Systems as its US Military distributor. Combat Medical Systems will spearhead sales and distribution of iTraumaCare's iTClampTM Hemorrhage Control System to various branches of the US Military and Federal Government.

"The iTClamp fills the gap that currently exists in the Care Under Fire phase of tactical medicine. It's intuitive and easily applied, and its impact on the challenges we face in hemorrhage control is significant," said Corey Russ, President, Combat Medical Systems.

iTraumaCare's CEO and founder, Dr. Dennis Filips, said, "We selected Combat Medical Systems as our exclusive US Military distributor due to their extensive depth of experience and proven track record in working with the US military."

The iTClamp is designed to control severe bleeding - a leading cause of death in traumatic injury - in seconds. The iTClamp seals the edges of a wound closed to create a temporary pool of blood under pressure, which forms a stable clot that mitigates further blood loss until the wound can be surgically repaired. It is available in the US, European Union and Canada.

Combat Medical Systems, founded by a team of military medical personnel and industry specialists, has a straightforward goal: simplify tactical medicine and decrease pre-hospital mortality. Combat Medical Systems is located outside Fort Bragg, N.C., which strategically positions the company to stay current on military medical trends.

Incorporated in 2010 and based in Edmonton, Canada with its global commercialization headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, iTraumaCare is addressing unmet needs in the field of emergency medicine by developing, manufacturing, and commercializing solutions to treat common causes of preventable death in traumatic injury scenarios.
