MedTech Actuator Accelerator startup, TuCann Medical, is developing a Peripheral Intravenous Cannula (PIVC) that aims to prevent bloodstream infections, phlebitis and occlusion of these devices. Current cannulas used in hospitals have a high rate of complications and often need to be removed, resulting in multiple needle sticks for patients. TuCann Medical's PIVC aims to change this by creating a safer patient experience where only one line is needed, every time.
At the recent MedTech Actuator Showcase, we joined ecosystem leaders to celebrate Asia Pacific’s next wave of early-stage MedTech, HealthTech and BioTech entrepreneurs – with four taking home prestigious awards.
