Tourniquet Touch

Para regular de forma segura la oclusión del flujo sanguíneo durante la cirugía de extremidades

Interfaz de usuario fiable e intuitiva

Características especiales para la seguridad del paciente

Máxima calidad - "Fabricado en Alemania"

El Torniquete Touch TT20 es un aparato de isquemia eléctrico. Regula la presión de los manguitos torniquetes, que ocluyen temporalmente el flujo sanguíneo y manteniendo así un campo libre de sangre en extremidades superiores y inferiores. Innovaciones en la facilidad de uso, como los botones de selección rápida o el sistema de alarma especial, simplifican el uso del equipo y garantizan la seguridad del paciente. La interfaz del sistema es fiable e intuitiva y permite un mantenimiento sencillo para el ingeniero biomédico (calibración, autodiagnóstico, prueba de fugas).

——Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What versions of the Tourniquet Touch are available?

The TT exists in 2 different configurations: The TT15 with cuff and irrigation channel and the TT20 with two cuff channels including the option of IVRA.

What are the recommendations for Service and Maintenance?

An inspection has to be performed once a year by a biomedical engineer. The inspection includes calibration, a self-test and a leak test. This can be performed through the device settings via the two options “Calibration” and “System check”.

Does VBM offer product training or training videos regarding the TT?

We will be offering product training in-house or on your site upon request.

Are the current cuffs compatible with the new TT-device?

Yes – all our cuffs are compatible with the new TT-device.

What is the pressure range of TT?

The pressure can be set in a range between 80 and 500 mmHg.

Which alarm time can be set?

The alarm time can be set in a range between 15 and 120 minutes.

What exactly are the so called “Fast-Choice-Buttons”?

“Fast-Choice-Buttons” allow a quick selection of pressure and alarm time thanks to preset values. Between 200-400 mmHg for pressure and between 30-90 minutes for alarm time. “Fast-Choice-Buttons” can be used at any time of the procedure.

Is it possible to extend the time after the alarm?

Yes – the time can be extended – either by 10, 20 or 30 minutes.

Can the factory settings for pressure (250 mmHg) and time (90 min) be changed?

Yes – it is possible to change the default values for pressure and time according to the requirements of the user. It is necessary to close the settings menu and restart the device after changing the values.

Is there an interface for a printer?

No – a printer cannot be connected to the device but you can check time and pressure of the last 5 sessions by clicking the history button.

What is the purpose of the USB-port?

With help of the USB-port it is possible for the manufacturer to read-out error codes. Furthermore it is an interface for software updates performed by the manufacturer.

Is it possible to operate the device with surgical gloves?

Yes – it is possible to operate the device either with or without surgical gloves.

How can the device be disinfected?

The Tourniquet Touch can be disinfected through a common wipe disinfection.

Which accessories are available?
  • Robust mobile stand with basket, exclusively designed for the Tourniquet Touch
  • Additional basket to increase storage place
  • Coiled and smooth connecting tubing in different lengths
How long is the start-up time, including the self-test?

The start-up including the self-test takes approximately 30 seconds.

What is performed during the self-test?

The self-test checks parameters such as internal security features, voltage and device temperature, the supply of compressed air at the two channels, storage media, battery, soft- and hardware versions and the alarm systems.

What is the autonomy with a fully loaded battery?

Without power source and a fully loaded battery, it is possible to run the device during approximately 8 hours.

What is the IP code of the TT?

IP code of the TT is IP20 and therefore not waterproof due to its venting slots at the back of the Tourniquet which ensure appropriate airflow and prevent the battery from overheating. However, wipe disinfection of the housing is easily possible and not damaging the TT.

Which are the languages included in the TT?

The TT has been designed with enhanced user-friendliness and shall be mostly operated without a certain language. Although for the settings menu, various languages can be selected. These languages are as follows: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Danish, Czech, Polish, Turkish.

Will service for the discontinued tourniquets be offered in future?

Yes – service and spare parts for the discontinued devices will be offered during the product life cycle of 8 years.

Does the TT interfere with electrosurgical units?

The Tourniquet Touch fulfills the IEC 60601-1-2 Standard. Within this Standard EMC immunity and emission are tested by an accredited test laboratory (see IFU point 16: EMC Table).
High Frequency Electrosurgical units also have to fulfill this Standard. When activated these devices use a very strong frequency, e.g. during cutting which could cause interference with other equipment which is adjacent or stacked to the electrosurgical unit. It is then recommended to increase the distance between the devices (see IFU point 4: Safety Information).

What does it mean, when the On/Off-Button flashes when pressed?

It means, that the battery is very low and needs to be charged. Generally, the device is equipped with a special battery management systems to ensure that the loading gets monitored accordingly to the cells voltage of the battery. If this is low, the battery management system will only allow 10% of the maximum amperage (pre-charge current). This is meant to protect the cells of the battery. The consequence is, that the time for initial loading increases. It usually needs up to 10 minutes for the initial loading of the battery. In some situations and because of the low cells voltage and the intelligent battery management system, the time can be up to 100 minutes.

After the TT20 is fully charged, not turned on and disconnected from the mains supply, how long will it take until the power runs out?

The Tourniquet Touch can only be switched on if there is a certain "Minimum Battery Capacity". This level of charge gives the device the ability to run all necessary alarms mode.
When the device is stored, i.e. NOT connected to the mains and NOT switched on: Approximately 4 months can elapse and the battery is just over the "Minimum Battery Capacity".
In this situation the device can be switched on immediately when it is connected to the mains supply (ready for operation), or even switched on directly without mains supply.
To get the battery completely empty, it takes about another 0.5 - 1 month.
Finally it takes in total about 5 months until the battery is empty. Then you just have to charge for a few minutes until the device is ready for operation ("Minimum Battery Capacity" is reached).
These indications are valid under room temperature. Any other warehousing conditions might impact the values of battery capacity.

What else has to be considered?

If the battery is not fully charged (during a charging process), the device must be disconnected from the mains for a while in order to cool down.
