IV Catheter Placement Device
Peter Schwarzenberg, Nicholas Hirdt
Our goal is to create a device which will mitigate the risk of fluid infiltration during the placement of an IV catheter. We hope to do this by creating a device to assist a medical professional in the correct placement of the IV catheter. Our device will mechanically prevent the user from penetrating the posterior wall of the vein, as well as lessen the risk of human error.
