Nov 16, '09Joined: Nov '09; Posts: 1I'm late coming to the post--but I REALLY did interview hundreds of nurses during and after my stem-cell transplant for NHL because the standard pole was driving me crazy and I was determined to design a stable, safer, ergonomic IV pole. Safepole is the result-- I listened to all my wonderful nurses and put room for multiple pumps, tip-resistant base, hooks for Foleys and Pleuravacs and many other safety and convenience features. Not sure if the image is coming through (www.safepole.net) but Safepole looks very different--and very cool!
