infusion pole

Wearable infusion pump

If you have ever been to a hospital, you will certainly recognize the image of a patient with his or her infusion pole. An image that stands for being ill and dependent. Ivy Medical wants to change that image forever.

More than 1 million patients per year, in Dutch hospitals alone, receive infusion therapy. This means that more than 1,000,000 patients a year have to drag an infusion pole through the hospital. We can make a difference!

Hospitals depend on infusion poles for almost all types of infusion therapy. This involves also really common therapies, such as sodium chloride-, ringer lactate-, antibiotics- and pain medication solutions. However, patients are often fit enough to get out of bed.

Ivy Medical’s wearable infusion pump, the Ivy One, takes away all physical and mental barriers associated with the pole. Patients receive the infusion therapy from a bag, which can be worn on the hip, belly, and back. Patients can go wherever they desire and are enabled to receive infusion therapy and doing exercising with a physiotherapist at the same time. Furthermore, mobility promotes recovery. Being discharged early from the hospital is not only very pleasant for patients, but also contributes to a more affordable healthcare!

Ivy One


With a size of at 6 x 14 x 24 cm, The Ivy One is barely bigger than a lunchbox.


The Ivy One is fully charged within 2 hours and lasts up to 24 hours before it needs to be charged again .


Our  wearable infusion pump (patent pending) delivers an accurate and consistent flow. By keeping the flow within a closed circuit, the fluid remains free from contamination and is provided safely to the patient.


With a weight of 480 grams, the Ivy One is more than 5 times as light as common IV pumps.

User friendly

Operating the Ivy One is very easy. The nurse places the infusion bag in the case, sets the desired duration and presses start. Flow, running time and battery life can be read at a glance off the simple display.


De Ivy One, which is still under development, supports all common infusion systems and all infusion bags up to 500 ml. This means hospitals can implement the portable infusion without difficulty.
