TrueClot understands the importance of providing reliable training products at an affordable price. We aim to strike a balance between durable materials and maintaining a low cost per training for our customers. The durability of TrueClot task trainers ensures that customers may conduct several years of training sessions without replacement, limiting equipment costs. A single task trainer can be subjected to thousands of training sessions during its lifetime. And with each training session, wounds will repeatedly be packed with gauze, and tourniquets will be torqued and torqued until the bleeding has stopped.
In 2011, Luna Innovations (the parent company of TrueClot at that time) was awarded a research contract by the Office of the Secretary of Defense to invent a next-generation blood simulant for use in training military combat medics. This new blood simulant needed to look, feel, and clot like real human blood. This research led to the development of TrueClot Blood Simulant; the only blood simulant with realistic, active clotting.
Soon after introducing TrueClot Blood Simulant, we recognized the need for durable bleeding control task trainers. With a strong dedication to realism, TrueClot worked directly with EMS First Responders and Military Combat Medics to develop our task trainer product line. Today, TrueClot Wound Packing Task Trainers and Tourniquet Application Trainers are trusted all over the world to train EMS personnel, military first responders, and civilians. In 2022 Luna Labs was formed as a separate company from Luna Innovations. As Luna Labs, the same dedicated team continues to produce the TrueClot line of products at our location in Charlottesville, Virginia…proudly made in the USA.
