IV-Walk is an intravenous system that can be worn, giving hospital patients more freedom to move around.
Designed to be worn over the patient's shoulders, the drip is encased in soft fabric for ultimate comfort. The device offers a more mobile alternative to the metal poles usually used to support intravenous (IV) systems. Instead of hanging from a pole, fluids are stored in pouches and pumped through a tube into the hand. This allows patients to walk around more freely, enabling them to get the fresh air and exercise that accelerate patient recovery. Should a patient take a walk around the hospital, nurses can track the drip through a connected system that alerts them should there be a problem with the pump.
