The innovative Smart Bandage uses a clever pictogram to show users how to achieve the correct tension which is essential when applying a pressure immobilisation bandage, especially for snake bites.

Volume Discount

Snakes and spiders are such a common occurrence in Australia that one would think they become just another part of life. However for some people, no matter how much exposure they have to snakes and spiders, they’ll forever remain frightened. Whilst snakes and spiders may install fear in some, we believe that an actual bite is truly terrifying.

Knowing how to react and apply correct first aid immediately can be the difference between life and death. In a stressful situation you never want to have any doubt about how to respond to a life threatening event. Survival Emergency Solutions have teamed up with SSSafe to create the most versatile snake bandage that the market has even seen. This is a huge innovation. We aim to ensure even the layman is prepared for an emergency!

What is the SMART bandage?

The SMART snake bandage makes sense. It uses a clever pictogram to show users how to achieve optimal tension. It starts off as a rectangle and when you have reached the optimal tension, the pictogram will show a square.

The graphics on the bandage help keep you calm during an emergency as it shows when optimal tension is reached.

Watch how it works

Please Note: This video is an introduction to the SMART Snake Bandage to show how the printed pictogram helps the user to achieve optimal tension. This demonstration is not an accurate representation on how to treat a snake bite. We recommend everyone receives training on how to properly treat a snake bite, or contact Craig Adams from SSSafe.

Other uses?

The SMART snake bandage also doubles as a compression bandage in your first aid kit for major wounds, sprains and strains. We recommend always having two with you so you can apply above and below the bite or wound.

What does the creator think about this?

Craig Adams from SSSAFE is one of Australia’s leading snake experts. He states that “in snake bite emergencies, you need to act decisively, know what to do and have the best bandage at hand.”

The fine details

The SMART snake bandage is made out of a blend of woven cotton fabric, with non fraying edges. It is extremely durable and can be washed after use. The bandage is 2m by 10cm and weighs about 50grams.

We seriously don’t go on an adventure without one of these. When you buy our HANDY, VEHICLE, or HOME / WORKPLACE kit, you will get a SMART bandage included inside your kit.

If you have a higher risk of exposure to spiders and snakes, we recommend purchasing the EXPLORER kit or 4WD Bundle as you get an extra SMART bandage included with those bundles.

Title Awesome Idea
We have recently moved to an area where snakes are more likely to be seen. This bandage will make it easier to stay calm in the event of a snake bite and get the correct compression. Great for my son and myself. Very impressed with the idea.

Title Review
Fortunately, I have not had the need to use this product and hope that I don't. My son recently moved to country NSW and goes pig hunting etc so the risk of encountering a snake is there. I liked the fact that this bandage shows how much compression to put on the affected area, something I was not aware of. I got one for myself to carry in the car and one for my son. The ordering process was seamless and the goods arrived with in two days.ordering process

Title Great to have
Great to have in my first aid kit and backpack - especially when we are out on the trails in the summer months. Feel secure and more confident we will be able to respond if there is an incident - foolproof to use under pressure!

Title Thank you!
I have recently taken up trail running and have an absolute fear of snakes! My friend last week was almost bitten by a snake and we realised we didn't know what to do in the event we got bitten. My husband is a volunteer bush rescuer and said he uses these and they are great. For someone who doesnt know much about first aid, I feel more comfortable trail running now that I have these in my pack and can tell what the right level of compression is required without guessing! We now have one in each car, in the house and one in each of our trail running bags. Also great video tips on your facebook page too.

Title Fantastic and Effective
.Loved the concept, the ease of use and practicality of the snake bandage,as soon as I saw it. I have lived and worked in regional WA all my life. Bandages have been purchased for each vehicle plus walking kit and now travel with us all the time. A wonderful simple idea that is effective in reducing concern about snake bites.

Really easy to use, with simplicity and clarity. It's amazing how off the correct compression you can be when you don't have the stretch panels to guide you. I Bought several of these (need 2 to do a good leg wrap).

Title brilliant idea
We do quite a bit of bush camping and when I asked my wife if she knew how to treat snake bite she had no idea. even if you know the basics getting the correct pressure leaves most people guessing. These bandages will boost confidence and reduce stress in a very stressful situation. A must have for going bush.

After carrying the stretch bandages for a number of years, and not knowing what pressure to apply, this snake bandage has taken the quess work out of applying them. So with 2 in our kit gives us a piece of mind.

Title Snake!!!!!!!!
Arrived just in time....though thankfully not required today. A brown snake was sighted slithering across our verandah this pm. Adults, children, dogs and a cat were in the space at the time and luckily we avoided any interaction. Unfortunate to not catch this unfriendly visitor but will be pleased to know we have 4 of these terrific bandages in various locations on the property. There will be no error should we have an altercation with a snake or a nasty funnelweb and be assured of the correct tension bandaging a limb. Great idea!

Title Smart Snake Bandage
Excellent idea with the squares on the bandage to aid correct tension when applying this bandage. When you are under the stress of an emergency situation the guess work is taken out of the equation enabling the first aider to have confidence in their application of bandaging. Why hasn't anyone thought of this before? Such a simple idea.

As I haven't done a first aid course yet.......I wondered how tight you should apply a pressure bandage? This bandage tells you when it is done the right way. The printed rectangles turn to squares. Couldn't be simpler. Brilliant!

Title Snake bite bandage
We will soon be heading off on our trip around Australia in our bus. We have 5 kids, aged 6 - 13. We have an extensive first aid kit and the only thing lacking was a suitable application for dealing with a possible snake bite. I think this bandage will proof to be an invaluable addition to our first aid kit and provide a great sense of relief knowing we have it available.

Title Great service
I've just received my package, I ordered 3 snake bandages and received 4, and a mini first-aid kit, which was a great surprise. I hope I never need to use one, but have seen 3 different types of snakes on my residential property and numerous funnel-webs. My spare goes to my sister who walks her dog each day near the bush. Thanks so much, I'm sharing on Facebook.

Title Gotta have these in the kit!
I live in a rural area with lots of brown snakes. Have bought 3 of these for at home and also ordered some for the local fire brigade truck. I recently completed a first aid/CPR course where we were shown these bandages and in a critical situation, they'd be the ones I'd want. Great company to deal with also!

Title SMART Snake Bandage
What an AWESOME product.
As well as being of superior quality to many other bandages on the market, this one takes all the guess work and worry about ensuring you're applying the correct amount of tension for maximum effectiveness.
My dog and I run most days but unfortunately at this time of year we encounter snakes on a regular basis, so the SMART bandage is now an essential part of my running kit.
I highly recommend this product.
