Lidocaine Patch Applicator

This device was designed for a client in need of a device to help her mother with her ability to apply her medication patch. Her mother suffers from chronic shoulder pain, which limits her range of motion. They tried every kind of product that was commercially available, but nothing could help her apply her patch in the correct location. They heard about the IATP Maker program and were curious to see if we could provide a solution. After two prototypes, the Makers found a solution that would work. The lidocaine patch lightly sticks to the applicator and the handle design allows her to position the patch where needed and transfer it to her body using very little pressure.
