Delta Five Innovations (D5) recently showcased the entire ARC°tc™ “suite” of products currently in development at the Advanced Technology Applications for Combat Casualty Care (ATACCC) Trade Show in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. There is an extraordinarily high association between hypothermia and mortality in trauma casualties. D5 is developing these devices in response to anecdotal data which indicates that significant attention should be paid to early intervention, with heat loss prevention starting as soon after wounding as tactically possible.
“The scope of new products in development by D5 offer ‘game changing’ thermal technology,”
The ARC°tc™ technology allows for extremely flexible, versatile, light-weight and durable heaters with the critical added benefit of extremely low current draw. The battery life attainable with this heating technology surpasses all existing competing technologies by 30-50%. Better battery life translates into improved portability, longer heating durations and better patient outcomes.
