The Bedal Patch is a transparent patch to cover the IV exit site during washing or showering. For patients that have a long term IV line, the Bedal Patch allows them to wash autonomously or with minimal intervention.
Intravenous therapy is amongst the most widespread treatments in the medical industry. One of the common downsides of this therapy is the effect on the patient comfort. In order to wash or shower, an adequate shielding of the intravenous exit site is mandatory. Due to the lack of adequate solutions, most hospitals do not allow patients to wash while connected to an intravenous catheter. When showering is allowed, the time spent of hospital staff in assisting patients to shower represents significant costs. With the Bedal Patch, a patient can wash independently and safely as often as they want to.
