Prior to the PICCPerfect Pro, vascular access care teams had no user-friendly solutions to help prevent line dislodgement due to patient activity, especially once they left the hospital. Hospitals and distributors across the globe sought out Mighty Well for their expertise in the vascular access field to help them address issues with PICC line care in in-patient and out-patient settings, the company said in a statement.
In response, Mighty Well designed the PICCPerfect Pro, a secondary Catheter Securement Device (FDA registered - Class 1) so patients could access this product right at the point of device insertion. The PICCPerfect Pro will serve over 2.7 million individuals who will receive a new picc line in the next twelve months.
The PICCPerfect Pro was created with input from over 250 medical experts, patients and PICC line nurses to improve patient satisfaction. The PICCPerfect Pro catheter securement device protects and covers a patient's PICC line, bringing patients comfort and style. Its innovative design may also help prevent PICC dressing issues and catheter migrations - both of which negatively affect the patient’s experience and increase healthcare costs.
“We designed the PICCPerfect Pro to keep PICCs safe, sanitary, and secure from the daily burdens of being a patient. After living with vascular access for 8 years, I understand what it means to return to everyday life with a PICC line in tow,” Emily Levy, chief brand officer and co-founder Mighty Well said in a statement.
“The addition of the PICCPerfect Pro’s adjustable strap has truly elevated the functionality of this product. The PICCPerfect Pro allows the patient to adjust the fit to suit their personal comfort level. Finding the right fit can change frequently through a patient’s PICC Line journey due to things like a patient’s activity level and weight fluctuations. Knowing the PICCPerfect Pro can adjust easily to their individual needs makes it a perfect fit for PICC line securement,” Karlene Cruz, RN, BSN said.
