About

The goal of this clinical trial is to compare usability and performance of automatic tourniquets (AUT) and standard mechanical tourniquets (CAT) in healthy adults. The main questions it aims to answer are: * Are AUTs effective in occlusion of blood flow * Are AUTs easy to use Participants will be asked to place AUT and CAT on their upper limbs and lower limbs (8 applications overall). Following each application, the following parameters will be assessed: 1. Limb blood flow 2. Ease of use Researchers will compare the results of the AUT and CAT to see if AUT is as effective as CAT in blood occlusion, and if AUT is easy to use as the CAT.
