Meant to alleviate the anxiety that occurs (especially for children) when an IV is dangling by your bedside, Medi Teddy keeps all the tubes hidden away inside a plush teddy bear. On the backside, doctors and nurses can keep tabs on the device by peering through a mesh net. Intended to be owned by individuals rather than hospitals, the product was invented by pediatric patient Ella Casano, who was diagnosed with a blood disorder when she was seven. Orders can be placed on their website.
