The Drainpatch offers a wide range of benefits for both healthcare professionals and patients.
The Drainpatch can be used for a variety of different treatments & procedures.
The use of sutureless stabilization devices for catheters is supported by a vast amount of scientific publications, and by the existing guidelines.
“The Bedal Drain Patch provided excellent fixation, without compromising the inner lumen and/or flow of the drainage catheter. The patch scored really well on patient comfort being soft and pliable.
I was particularly pleased with the ‘one size fits’ all concept. It perfectly held a 7 Fr drainage catheter which is a challenge for a device suited for a wide range of catheter diameters.
Also the opportunity to have these fixation devices available independently pouched and sterile is a big plus for me.”

“After a successful drainage procedure, too little attention is paid to the way the catheter is fixed to the skin. In my view, the latter is at least as important as the drain itself.
In addition to a classic fixation with sutures, there are various ‘suture-free’ catheter stabilization and fixation systems on the market, all of which have their respective advantages and disadvantages.
Three elements are essential for me, namely:
As far as I am concerned, the Drainpatch satisfies all these elements. Bedal has succeeded in combining and improving the benefits of the various systems on the market, resulting in a design that will hopefully become the new standard of its kind. “
