InfuSystem, a provider of infusion pumps and related services, has entered into a distribution agreement with Poppy Pocket.
InfuSystem services hospitals, oncology practices and other alternate site healthcare providers.
Poppy Pocket delivers medical equipment pouches that are more comfortable and discreet than traditional pouches, allowing patients to live freely while wearing bulky medical pumps and devices.
The Poppy Pocket is the new infusion pump holding system that allows patients to receive chemotherapy infusions while performing all of their daily activities.
InfuSystem is the sole distributor into the oncology market of the latex-free pump transport and holding system.
Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center clinical trials program assistant manager Molly Downhour said with the Poppy Pocket, patients can maintain their identity of a professional while at work instead of being just a cancer patient.
The Poppy Pocket will be available to InfuSystem customers beginning in June of 2011.
