Testimonials

Vicki Shawyer, Senior Vascular Access Nurse Specialist at the Royal Devon and Exeter after the successful trial of the Bionector TKO self administration set (SAS).

"The evidence from patients has proved to be an overwhelming endorsement of the new extension line. They appreciate the freedom it gives them and the opportunity to get on with normal life. Many are young; at work or college and to have to get to the hospital to receive therapies would be inconvenient and severely impact their daily routine."
