  • Patent number: 4387873
    Abstract: A device for suspension of a solution container in both an infusion and drain position, easily foldable or rollable for storage or carrying. The device comprises an elongated, flexible, foldable strap (10) attached at one end to a bracket (12), the bracket adapted to be secured to an elevated surface. There is an adjusting means, preferably a bolt (18) integral with the bracket to enable attachment and detachment of the bracket to an elevated surface. Finally, there are support means (24, 30) for suspension of the solution container, the support means being adjustably engagable with the strap at any desired location on the strap. Although primarily intended for use by patients practicing the medical procedure of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), the device is readily usable for suspension of other container types.
