The V-Stretch is a new, standard tourniquet, designed for maximum comfort during blood sampling
The V-Stretch is a new, standard tourniquet, designed by a team of entrepreneurs for maximum comfort during blood sampling.
The V-Stretch has a patented buckle and straps with multiple grip points as well as a patented curved ladder strap, which is suitable for cannulation, phlebotomy, and blood donation for most hospital departments, clinics, home care nursing, and ambulances.
V-Stretch is designed for ease of tightening, grip, and release. It is designed for single-use, to combat infection transmission and is planned to be available in a range of colors. This product, as a quick-release and disposable tourniquet, assists practitioners to improve their success rate in first attempt venous access.
The design has simplified manufacturing to make a superior product at an affordable cost for hospitals and clinics worldwide.
The aim is to promote V-Stretch globally as a Canadian global brand and export and target multi-national areas especially North and South America, Europe, China, Japan, Korea, the Middle East, and North Africa. This product is a patented developed product and as yet, not introduced into the market anywhere in the world. V-Stretch is to acquire the rights for the manufacture and market introduction and in North and Latin America.V-Stretch is designed for ease of tightening, grip, and release.

Our plan is to distribute V-Stretch to North America, South America UK, Europe & Scandinavia, Middle East, Africa, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Russia, China, Far East, Australia and New Zealand
V-Stretch is a Novel Tourniquet Optimised for maximal comfort, functionality, and ease of use during blood sampling (also called Phlebotomy or Venipuncture) and placement of a cannula or catheter into the vein (also called peripheral intravenous cannulations) for the administration of drugs, fluids, and blood to a patient.
This product, as a quick-release, easy-to-use device, and disposable tourniquet, is designed to assists practitioners to improve their success rate in first attempt venous access as well as helping combat the spread of infection by avoiding patient-to-patient transfer of microbes from repeated uses.
Vascular access for venepuncture and peripheral intravenous cannulation is a common procedure within health care where a needle or sheath is inserted into the vein to either obtain a blood sample or the patient to be given medication, fluids, or blood.
First-attempt cannula insertion success rate is lower in some patient groups such as the elderly, children, obese, and darker-skinned patients. Every attempt at cannulation (needle stick) increases the risk of infection to the patient, resulting in increased stress and a traumatic experience for both patient and practitioner.
Multiple unsuccessful cannulation attempts have negative impacts for both patients and practitioners. One cannulation-attempt costs about 40-50 CAD per patient, so it leads to wasting patient and practitioner time and high wastage cost to Healthcare providers. When it comes to children, up to 50% of cannulation performed fail.
There are a variety of Environmental, Economic, and Functional advantages of using V-Stretch:
The V-Stretch can be used without training for cannulation, drug delivery, and blood collection in a variety of medical settings such as hospitals, clinics, mobile units, home settings and clinicians, the general public, the armed forces.
