This project investigates the types of intravenous stands currently used in Chinese hospitals. Through interviews with patients and nurses, we identified the strengths and weaknesses of existing designs. Based on the desires of the hospitals, an original IV stand design was created which will accommodate patients while in and while out of bed. Once the design was completed, a prototype was manufactured and rated with respect to existing designs. A low fluid alarm was also designed and manufactured.
