The modified tourniquet provides a more effective way for one nurse to insert a PICC line. In doing so, it ensures that both hands remain free to attend to the insertion. As a result, it could help to prevent vein damage and it could enhance patient comfort and safety. The invention features a practical design that is convenient and easy to use so it is ideal for medical facilities. Additionally, it is producible in design variations.

The inventor described the invention design. "My design enables a nurse to safely insert a PICC line without assistance."

The original design was submitted to the Orange County office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
