Taser International produces non-lethal weapons designed to incapacitate aggressors while minimizing risk of fatalities and injury to staff and undesired damage, according to the company. The M26 model is designed to incapacitate dangerous, combative or high-risk subjects that may be impervious to other non-lethal means.

The device is engineered to have a lower injury rate than other non-lethal weapons, and has had no reported long-term adverse after-effects. Additionally, because the weapon can be used from up to 35 feet away, it can help to minimize officers’ exposure to physically dangerous situations.
