It is a temporary wearable IV pole. The existing infusion stand is bulky and heavy, which means that the patients' moving space is limited during infusion, especially when going to the bathroom. This IV pole can make them walk around easily. It can adapt to patient's body shape through elastic bands and clips, so that their intravenous infusion bags and drippers can be carried hands-free without falling. The folding structure of the IV pole enables it to be put on with one hand, providing convenience for patients who need to move temporarily during infusion.
