BD was developing a new catheter technology that allowed for an increased flow rate without increasing catheter gauge size. It allowed for safer contrast injection during radiology procedures. BD wanted to create a catheter hub to help guide radiology technicians. The design team collaborated with teams at the University of Utah School of Medicine to validate ergonomics and user interface guidance for optimal flow rates for hot and cold contrast injection. The product itself has an overmolded grip to make it as easy as possible to securely connect ports during various procedures and minimize the chance of harmful leaks and contrast extravasation.
