  • Patent number: 10588664
    Abstract: According to embodiments of the present invention, a subcutaneous implant delivery apparatus is provided. The apparatus includes a receiving portion configured to receive a subcutaneous implantable device; and a stabilizing portion configured to cooperate with the receiving portion to hold the subcutaneous implantable device in a fixed position. The receiving portion and the stabilizing portion are movable relative to each other between a released configuration, wherein the receiving portion and the stabilizing portion are configured to move apart from each other to allow the receiving portion to be inserted under a skin layer, and a closed configuration, wherein the receiving portion and the stabilizing portion are configured to move toward each other to allow the subcutaneous implantable device to be held adjacent to the skin layer. According to further embodiments of the present invention, a method of delivering a subcutaneous implantable device for accessing a vascular site is also provided.
