Title: STRAIN RELIEF AND TUBE MANAGEMENT ASSEMBLY FOR AN INFUSION SET
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to a tube management device for an infusion set that includes a holding member attachable to the patient and which defines a holding chamber for the tube. The tube may be engaged and disengaged with the device while the tube is operably connected to convey medication. The device may also allow a) the length of flexible tube controlled by the device and b) the position of the final exit of the tube from the holding member relative to the initial entry of the tube into the holding member to both be selectively adjusted. In some embodiments, the holding chamber is defined by a plurality of channels which may be either non-intersecting or intersecting channels.
