These devices are currently inefficient to work with, uncomfortable for the patient and do not protect the catheter well enough. Besides this, the device does not contribute to a positive healing environment because of its primitive appearance. This project delivers a new device, called Embrees, which helps to fixate a catheter on the hand or forearm of patients between 2 and 18 years old in a fast, comfortable, safe and friendly way. The initiator of this project is Petra van Schie and it is carried out for Panton - Medidee.
