• Former IDF medic Bernard Bar-Natan develops the Emergency Bandage, which instantly controls massive bleeding with a patented pressure applicator and prevents infections in trauma situations.
• First used by medics during a NATO peacekeeping operation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the product was nicknamed “The Israeli Bandage” by US troops after it became a standard of care in the American army. In 2011, this made-in-Israel bandage was credited with saving the lives of US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others who were shot in an Arizona parking lot.
