Warfighter Scuba is a Non-Profit 501 c 3 that provides Scuba Therapy for Veterans. Wounded warriors receive scuba certification from SSI, and a week of scuba diving in Roatan, Honduras. In this video Warfighter CEO, Nick Powers, a United States Marine Corps Veteran demonstrates how fast / efficient the OMNA Marine Tourniquet can be applied in the water. The OMNA Tourniquet had spent over 6 months in the Mares BCD for numerous dives, and was only freshwater dunked in the dive locker post dives. The OMNA Marine Tourniquet had no rust or corrosion, or other deterioration of materials from the repetitive saltwater exposure, which is something no other tourniquet on the market can match. According to studies conducted by the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research the more common windlass tourniquets must remain in the packaging at all times to preserve efficacy; in studies other tourniquets have shown as much as a 40% loss in effectiveness from normal everyday exposure. Therefore, it is logical that the same more common tourniquets when exposed to a marine environment would lose even more effectiveness aka efficacy and at a much more rapid pace. The OMNA Marine Tourniquet uses proprietary marine-grade materials that don't absorb water, are not affected by saltwater and UV rays, therefore, you can dive with OMNA TQs without fear of losing efficacy.
