VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- Pyng Medical Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PYT) announced today the release of their tourniquet marketed for the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Market – E-MAT™.
"We are very excited to be launching this product for the EMS Market at a time when new tourniquet protocols are being introduced and implemented world-wide," commented Nadine Siqueland Gaston, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for Pyng.
The E-MAT™ features a bright, EMS orange color, setting it apart from its surroundings and making it noticeable at an accident scene. "This new high-visibility color will make it easy to see that a tourniquet has been placed on a patient," added Nadine. "It is also lightweight and compact, making it an easy fit into any medical bag."
With its new color, the E-MAT™ contains all the same award-winning features of the original MAT®.
