Interrad Medical said today it won a Federal Supply Schedule contract with Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense hospitals for its SecurAcath catheter securement device.
The SecurAcath is designed with small insertable anchors at the point of catheter entry to keep catheters from moving or coming loose in patients, according to the company’s website. The attachment device eliminates the need to suture or adhesively attach catheters, Interrad said.
“We welcome this opportunity to add VA and DoD hospitals to the growing list of institutions using the SecurAcath to maintain vascular access for the entire duration of therapy. The timing of this award is excellent because it coincides with the launch of the improved ergonomic SecurAcath design,” CEO Joe Goldberger said in a press release.
The Plymouth, Minn.-based company did not offer any details as to the length or other terms of the supply contract.
