About WRAP Technologies
WRAP Technologies is an innovator of modern policing solutions with a mission to create advanced technologies for the safety and security of first responders. WRAP’s flagship product is the BolaWrap Remote Restraint device, and the company has multiple other products in development.
Thought of as “Remote Handcuffs”, the BolaWrap is a hand-held remote restraint device that discharges an 8-foot bola style Kevlar tether at 513 feet per second to wrap a subject’s legs or arms at an effective range of 10-25 feet.
Created for law enforcement and the military, BolaWrap is the only remote response to resistance tool that ensures a safe space between the subject and officer. It does not rely on pain compliance and is specifically designed to be deployed early in an encounter to decrease the potential for injury to the subject, bystanders, or the officer. Inflicting pain often escalates encounters, BolaWrap's non-threatening form allows time to de-escalate and provide needed support for the person in crisis.
All BolaWrap products are manufactured in the USA, at WRAP’s headquarters in Tempe, AZ.
WRAP was founded in 2016 and is a publicly-traded company listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under ticker symbol WRTC.
