Research Facts
Evans and Wormull, formerly Evans and Stevens, first appeared in 1874; they were recognized as suppliers of medical instruments to the British army and navy. Evans & Co. was a surgical instrument maker working in London between 1676-1874.
This style of screw tourniquet was invented by Parisian surgeon Jean Louis Petit in 1718, and his design was used until the early 20th century; he was the first person to use the term 'tourniquet'.
