APPLICATION AND REMOVAL PROCEDURES

WRIST NEEDLE FIXATION DEVICE

ARM AND LEG (HEMODIALYSIS)
NEEDLE FIXATION DEVICE

ELBOW NEEDLE FIXATION DEVICE

TOP OF THE HAND NEEDLE FIXATION

All of our products are single-use sterile packaged. Each consist of an underside saddle with straps attached that loop around the body part to crisscross over the butterfly section of the insertion needle and continue around to fasten to the underside of the saddle with a hook and loop adhesion system. The portion of the saddle and straps that touch the skin are made of non-allergenic material designed to be minimally abrasive to the skin.  

Each device strap is long enough to accommodate all sizes. The strap can be cut reducing the length as necessary. The straps are longer for the hemodialysis device to allow for needle fixation in the leg as well as the arm.

While the patient comfort and stress reduction is a great reason to use a NeedleNurse® device, clinically the most important duty of the NeedleNurse® devices are to dramatically reduce or eliminate bruising and skin tears. Skin tears can lead to infection which equates to additional treatment cost and suffering to the patient.

The NeedleNurse® can be ordered in varying quantities based on individual clinic requirements.

The NeedleNurse® devices are STERILE devices contained in sterile packages. Each device is constructed for both maximum comfort and durability. Upon removal each device should be disposed of in the clinic’s bio hazard waste disposal container.   CAUTION - All NeedleNurse® devices are STERILE devices that are ONETIME use devices.  CLEANING OF THE DEVICE AND MULTIPLE TREATMENT USES ARE NOT PERMITTED.
