ShearLITE trauma shears for wound measurement

LED trauma shears for military, SOF, TEMS, Firefighter


  1. Simply hover the blade tips over the surface that needs to be measured.
  2. Note where the top shear blade intersects the light mount.
  3. Use the 3 interior holes on the light mount to get an approximate measurement in centimeters.

*Never allow the blade tips to make contact with the wound surface. Should be used as a tool for approximation only.

ShearLITE trauma shears for pupillary assessment

LED pupil gauge


  1. Use the 2-6mm pupil gauge on the light mount to compare patient's pupil size (should be measured using normal room lighting).
  2. To measure reactivity, turn the light on and move from the side of the eye towards the pupil. Use the light beam to “splash” the light source from the side of the eye, never directly into the pupil.
