Pittsburgh, Pa. - Hep-Lock IV lines are often used instead of regular IVs, but they can be difficult to keep in place comfortably. "I saw a need for a way to avoid IV infiltration and discomfort caused by medical tape," says an inventor from Webster, Texas, "so I designed a better way to secure hep-lock IV lines."
The patent-pending IV Ease is an accessory that eliminates need for medical tape, which avoids irritated skin and allergic reactions. It also helps prevent infiltration of the line and avoids discomfort. Easy to use and producible in design variations, the accessory can be used in hospitals, nursing homes, and medical facilities.
The original design was submitted to the Houston office of InventHelp. More information is available at InventHelp.com.
