MedeGrip Safety Device, Gripping Aid To Be Launched at AVA

MedeGrip is a new gripping aid that also protects clinicians against sharps injuries.

Placed in a central-line dressing kit, MedeGrip can help hospitals improve compliance with their protocol for changing end caps at regular intervals. “There has long been a need in our field for a specially designed gripping device,” said Ostroff. “This is not just about comfort and effectiveness, although they are certainly important.

Gripping objects between the device's two opposing surfaces enables clinicians to grasp and manipulate objects more safely and effectively.
