IV Security Invented by InventHelp Client (FLA-2574)

Share Article

Founded in 1984, InventHelp is working to submit the PORT LOCK To applicable companies for their review and potential feedback.

With health costs continuing to skyrocket, medical facilities need to take measures to contain those costs and improve patient outcomes. Fortunately, an inventor from Margate, Fla., has found a way to help.

He developed PORT LOCK to secure intravenous (IV) access ports. As such, it prevents tampering with IV components and avoids contamination of IV ports. As a result, it has the potential to save lives and prevent infection and other complications related to IV malfunction. At the same time, it provides patients and health care workers with peace of mind. It also prevents tampering with IV access by patients and reduces financial loss to medical facilities. In addition, it is convenient, effective, easy to use and affordably priced.

The inventor's work experience inspired the idea. "I was inspired to create this device while working as a hospital manager," he said. "I identified a need to secure IV access ports and thought this device would fulfill that need." The idea is patent pending.

The original design was submitted to the Fort Lauderdale office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
