Solution for Tangled IV Lines - Digital Promise Global

Solution for Tangled IV Lines

February 27, 2018 | By

Students in the Learning Studio All Saints High School in Kanata, ON, Canada partnered with their local veterinary clinic to design a solution for tangled IV lines. When clinic staff would use an IV line to administer medicine to animals, the tube of the line would easily become tangled in the process. The students took inspiration from the shape of an Oreo cookie to design and 3D print a device that holds the IV line in place, thus mitigating the chance for tangling.

The original prototype is on the left. The smaller, improved devices are at the right side of the IV line.
