The Mark II is undergoing clinical testing and FDA approval.
The Wharton Project Mark II – Band IV Holder has been under development for over a year (first documents dated January 10th 2017). The design was created after consult by Agency X [redacted] to address and reduce tube attachment medical adhesive-related skin injuries (MARSIs) which affects, according to 3M, 8% of hospitalized infants and children, 15.5% of long-term care patients, and approximately 41% of hip surgery patients.
