RoddyMedical, Inc., is an early-stage innovative medical device development company. The firm’s first wearable Medical Device, the SecureMove-TLC® is a wearable, single-use medical line securement device designed to secure and manage different types of medical tubes, IV lines, and cords to improve IV medication safety, support patient therapy efficiency, prevent clinical staff trips/falls and reduce dressing disruptions that can lead to infections. The tension mitigation device is uniquely designed to eliminate hazardous pulling and line/cord dislodgement during therapy, transport, and patient movement. While current devices will dislodge between 4-9 lbs. of force, the SecureMove mitigates 80+ lbs. of pull force, providing a new level of safety and security for hospital clinicians and their patients.
Over the past 4 years, the company has developed its technology with the help and feedback of over 150 clinicians, assistance from the UW-Milwaukee’s Prototyping Center, as well as programs and grants from UW-Milwaukee’s I-Corps program, WEDC Ideadvance, and others.
