A novel solution helps manage cumbersome intravenous (IV) poles, infusion pumps, or other equipment at the bedside and during intra-hospital transports.

The Medovex Streamline IV Suspension System (ISS) is a patient equipment management device that combines the advantages of both a stand-alone and a bed-mounted IV pole into one simple system that makes the management of hospital patients and their equipment easy, safe, and efficient. With the pressing of a single pedal that automatically lifts supporting wheels off the floor, the ISS can go from an independent infusion stand to a suspended, securely locked part of any bed or stretcher, with all the patient’s IV infusion pumps or other equipment secured.

The patient can then be transported to any destination within the hospital by just a single person. Once at the desired location, or when eventually the patient is returned to the hospital room, the caregiver can again redeploy the wheels of the ISS to lower them to the floor while the system remains attached to the bed. Subsequently, the ISS can remain attached or be detached from the bed, providing staff with an optimal environment for nursing care of the patient.

The Medovex Streamline ISS is a product of Medovex (Atlanta, GA, USA), which acquired Streamline (Minneapolis, MN, USA), in March 2015. The company has also recently entered into an exclusive US marketing agreement with Hill-Rom Holdings (Batesville, IN, USA), a leading provider of medical technologies and related services to the healthcare industry around the world. The agreement covers exclusive marketing of the ISS, which is compatible with Hill-Rom's full range of beds and stretchers.

“According to Critical Care Medicine, there are roughly 100,000 critical care beds in US hospitals. Streamline’s ISS technology serves a growing need for safety and efficiency for both patients and caregivers in the hospital setting,” said Jarrett Gorlin, CEO of Medovex. “The product provides caregivers with a more efficient means of handling the growing amount of patient equipment that remains with patients as they move about a hospital.”
