Smart Toniqute / tourniquet

Smart Toniqute

During injection and blood extraction, it is often difficult to find the required vein. Incorporating of “Thermoelectric Cooling Module” and “Gyro sensor”, this smart tourniquet can detect its orientation as level or vertical. With orientation detection, this smart tourniquet would warm your arm before injection to quickly locate the vein, and lower the arm’s temperature after injection when the arm is raised to help stop the bleeding. With this smart tourniquet, you do not need to press against the wound to stop the bleeding.
