About

Antti Puolitaival is a rheumatologist. The need for a new type of IV therapy device, such as Monidrop, has been risen from Antti's daily work with his patients.

Antti says: "I have faced frequent problems in clinical work due to inaccurate intravenous fluid therapy. Today most intravenous therapy is conducted manually. This makes intravenous therapy inaccurate and increases the nurses’ work load.

While thinking about a solution for the problem, I found out that a small and simple infusion monitor could help nurses a lot in their work. I was surprised that such a product did not exist in the market, yet! So I drew a simple picture of a monitoring device attached to a drip chamber to paper, and showed it to nurses. I asked, if they would use the device in their work if it was available. The answer was almost always "Yes, of course I would use it".

My doctor colleagues also considered the issue important and they saw the many benefits that this type of device could bring to IV infusion therapy. Later I demonstrated the idea to a group of experts in product development. Thus begun the story of Monidrop, the intravenous infusion monitor! I have a dream that accurate intravenous infusion therapy would be available for every patient. "
