Teck Inn


For Rwandan hospitals, Teck Inn offers an IV drip system and alert mechanism for nurses, that's more accurate and efficient than manual systems, through an automatic monitoring device. In hospitals, nurses must continuously monitor the drip of intravenous fluid administered to patients. Managing patients’ fluid and electrolyte levels is a critical, challenging, and stressful task. Serious problems like air embolisms can occur if the observer forgets to change the IV at the correct time. Teck Inn offers a device that enables nurses to more easily manage intravenous fluids through a wireless alert system. As a result, patients will experience reduced risk of complications due to empty IV bags.
