When I had my first infusion, I was surprised and a little bit intimidated by the look of the amount of tubing and medical equipment on my I.V. pole. As I saw more and more children experiencing the same feelings, I became more interested in creating a friendlier experience for young I.V. patients, so I created Medi Teddy. I hope that Medi Teddy helps you just as much as it helps me!
Medi Teddy™️ is a stuffed animal sleeve that covers and conceals an I.V. bag. The back of the pouch is mesh, allowing for a doctor or nurse to see through and check on the fluid or medication a child is receiving. From the front, the child sees a friendly face and not the medication, blood product, or I.V. fluid being infused.
Medi Teddy™️ is a US patent pending product invented
by 12 year old Ella Casano.
