New England Pediatric Device Consortium Awards Velano Vascular in Support of Needle Free Blood Draw Technology
Date:3/24/2017

LEBANON, N.H., March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New England Pediatric Device Consortium (NEPDC) announced Velano Vascular as the recipient of an award including funding and in-kind service towards the commercialization of the company's needle free blood draw technology. 

"Making blood draws less traumatic for children could go a long way to making their whole hospital experience better.  We're looking forward to working with Velano Vascular to see how this technology can help improve care for the kids we treat," said Ann-Christine Duhaime, MD, NEPDC Co-Director and Director of the Pediatric Neurosurgery Department at Massachusetts General Hospital.

After a successful early engagement with Velano Vascular and their product, PIVO™, an FDA cleared device that makes inpatient blood draws a seamless and stress-free experience by reducing the number of sticks for blood collection, NEPDC will continue to support Velano Vascular in their efforts to engineer the device for use in smaller children and infants.

"We are honored to act as collaborators with NEPDC and the FDA in pursuit of a shared vision to eliminate the pain and anxiety that kids so closely associate with this necessary medical procedure," said Velano Vascular CEO Eric M. Stone. "With PIVO, pediatric blood draws can become a less stressful, more pleasant experience for both children and their parents."

NEPDC offers commercialization resources for pediatric medical devices through a seed grant program made possible through funds from the FDA Office of Orphan Product Development.
