About

BloodStop

BY MAN DOWN INNOVATIONS 

Help Me To Give Young Soldiers The Chance To Become Old Veterans.


Thousands of our boys and girls are killed, decade after decade, as they bleed out in the desert sand, the jungle swamp, even the concrete streets of some vile dictator.
 

I can't prevent war... I can't stop a dictator... what I would like to be given the chance to do is make sure our people come home alive.
 

For some time now I've been designing items that will mean many of these people will be given the chance to make it back... Things that can stop a soldier from bleeding out for long enough for them to get the treatment they need to survive... Such as the 'BloodStop', A system I'm developing that could drastically reduce the lives lost to gunshot wounds. (Which, of course, will be just as useful in the civilian world too)

The 'BloodStop' will be simply and speedily strapped to the wounded area and activated... using a small, compressed gas canister to allow a pressurized seal to stop blood from escaping from the victim... This solution is obviously short term but will inevitably help to keep them alive long enough to be saved.
 

To do this... that is to say to do it properly and to a standard that would be taken seriously... I'm going to need equipment... including a good quality 3D printer... A relatively inexpensive item that, in this case, has the potential to save countless lives.....
 

…..But I do need help.
 

Every single person who donates to this cause will be named and credited for saving lives
 (Unless they choose to remain anonymous)


   Father, son,
     Brother, Friend,
     You were born to serve,
     You were born to defend,
     Now your battles are over,
     Your war is won,
     Stand easy soldier,
     Your last watch is done.

Risks and challenges

There aren't any real risks with this project... The funds are for equipment needed to create prototypes and whether or not it's a success first time the equipment will still exist... and I have no intension of stopping until it's a success.
