Product Design

There are many reasons for securing a tube or medical device to the body and some considerations include:

  • Need for cushioning under the device
  • Strong anchoring preventing accidental removal
  • Reduction of infection risk
  • Inspection of puncture site
  • Extended life of device due to less changes required
