The SecurAcath® Subcutaneous Anchor Securement System (SASS) is a revolutionary new method for catheter securement that does not require sutures or adhesives. The unique design of the SecurAcath® secures right at the insertion site using small, flexible securement feet placed in the subcutaneous tissue just beneath the skin. 6
Used for securing PICC lines, CVCs and other lines for any patients, from neonates to geriatrics.

The flexible securement feet are made of Nitinol which is a shape-memory alloy of nickel and titanium. Nitinol is used in several medical devices including self-expanding stents and IVC filters. The plastic is polypropylene and elastomer. The SecurAcath® is not made with natural rubber latex.
