SAM Medical device named most innovative

EMS World magazine, a monthly publication for the emergency medical services market, recently announced SAM Medical Products of Wilsonville is the winner of the 2013 Top Innovation Award for its new SAM junctional tourniquet.

The magazine’s awards recognize the industry’s most innovative products at the 2013 EMS World Expo. Winners were chosen by magazine editorial advisory board member Mike Smith.

The tourniquet is designed to stop junctional bleeding in both the inguinal, or groin area, and the axilla, or armpit junction. It also controls pelvic fractures. No other device currently available on the market offers this level of versatility for these three areas of the anatomy. The tourniquet’s design allows hemorrhage control in less than 25 seconds in most cases.

“We are honored to be chosen from a very competitive landscape,” said Will Fox, SAM Medical director of marketing and business development. “The team here at SAM Medical worked very hard to bring the SAM junctional tourniquet to market.”

The December 2013 issue of EMS World magazine will feature a list of the winning companies and products. The January 2014 issue will feature a comprehensive report on the 2013 Top Innovation Awards.

“We continue to be impressed by the caliber of the entries each year,” said Scott Cravens, EMS World publisher. “Our exhibitors are creating products and technologies that are both increasing the safety of EMS professionals and transforming the delivery of emergency medical care.”

SAM Medical Products serve the needs of emergency medicine, the military and hospitals around the world. The company’s SAM splint has been the gold standard in flexible splinting products for many years now. Headquartered in Wilsonville, the company’s products are distributed in more than 60 countries.
