Integration into IVH Bundle

Tortle Medical Devices Integrate Into Your NICU’s IVH Bundle

Respiratory Attachments for Tortle Repositioning Beanies

The doctors behind Tortle understand the intricacies within the NICU, the potential complications of prematurity, and how important the first days of life are when it comes to neuroprotection and development.


The Tortle Midliner acts as an important part of your IVH bundle.


This Class-1 medical device helps NICU doctors and nurses to avoid potentially poor neurodevelopmental outcomes for your micro-preemie patients. It will support best management and handling practices for even the most immature or critical neonates.


As part of an IVH bundle, the Tortle Midliner provides caretakers with optimal positioning capabilities and decreases the need for handling of micro-preemies. It will hold neutral positioning to support positive outcomes, even when these patients require respiratory support, central lines, or are undergoing a medical transport.
