A Personal Focus.
A Personalized Fit.
The goal of Zimmer Biomet’s dual port tourniquet systems has always been to reduce post-operative tourniquet pain for patients. The newest addition to our tourniquet offerings, the A.T.S. 5000, combines Personalized Pressure® Technology with new customizable user preferences to provide a personalized experience for patients and healthcare professionals without disrupting workflow.
- Personalized Pressure® Technology
Occlusion Pressure (LOP)
- EZ and Distal
- Customizable Surgeon Protocols
- Dual Port
- Dual Cuff
- Touchscreen User Interface
- Lithium Ion Battery - 6 hours
No two patients are the same – that’s why our A.T.S. 5000 treats every patient with Personalized Pressure® Technology. Let’s discuss the ABCs of LOP.
LOP technology was designed to calculate a patient’s pressure at an individual level and apply the minimum amount of tourniquet pressure needed to occlude a limb at a specific time for a specific patient.
Tourniquet cuff pressures that are too low could result in bleeding distal to the cuff which can result in undesirable blood in the surgical field and blood loss. Hence, setting tourniquet pressures too low can cause pooling of blood in the field.
With the minimal time required, ease of use and well documented benefits of lower tourniquet pressures, the A.T.S. 5000 Automatic Tourniquet System offers the healthcare professional an option in setting the tourniquet cuff pressures - always keeping the final setting of pressure in their hands.
Personalized Pressure® Technology
Personalized Pressure can help surgeons choose a more individual, often lower, cuff pressure. Lower tourniquet cuff pressure reduces post-operative wound complications after TKA.1*
Applying lower tourniquet pressure has been found to result in less post-operative pain. One study demonstrated that an average thigh tourniquet pressure of 230mmHG resulted in statistically significant lower pain over a multi-day recovery period versus a tourniquet pressure of 350mmHG.2*
*The A.T.S. 5000 was not used in this study and has not been clinically evaluated to reduce post-operative pain and/or wound complications.
EZ LOP Measurement
LOP measurements can be obtained without an additional sensor, meaning the measurement can be performed much closer to cuff inflation time. The integrated barcode scanner automatically recognizes and scans compatible disposable cuffs, displaying all details on the device’s touchscreen interface.

Limb Occlusion Pressure (LOP)
LOP Technology was designed to calculate a patient’s pressure at an individual level and apply the minimum amount of tourniquet pressure needed to occlude a limb.
EZ LOP Method
Without the need to utilize a non-sterile sensor during LOP measurement, workflow is simplified.
Line Occlusion Detection (Acoustic Reflectometry)
This technology is intended to decrease the unintentional risk of leaving pressure in a tourniquet cuff.
Automatic IVRA Cuff Lock Out
Without additional steps or notification, the machine will prompt users to confirm the intent to deflate a second cuff. Improper deflations have resulted in serious injuries and death.
