EpiMed Stingray

Brownlie Design worked closely with Epimed International, a producer of premium epidural catheters, to develop and refine the Stingray™ Catheter Connector.  This device is manually placed on a catheter end permitting the withdrawal or introduction of fluids. The soft edged, low-profile form allows the unit to comfortably reside on a patient while in a hospital bed.  The winged sections provide the torque required to securely fasten the connector to a catheter. The quarter twist, belt line part break is intuitive to use with a strong visual and tactile indication as to how the unit opens and closes. Careful attention to details like the catheter lead-in, color coding and a forward thinking design approach has resulted in an overwhelmingly positive response from FDA inspectors, ISO auditors and customers alike. The distinctive shape gives Epimed a highly recognizable product form that is friendly and unintimidating.  The Stingray™ Catheter Connector won Best in Category in the I.D. Annual Design Review and has been well received by physicians and patients, citing improvements in comfort, catheter security, and simplicity.
