FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - March 10, 2020 - PRLog -- Lineus Medical announces the hiring of Will Armstrong as Vice President of Engineering. Will comes to Lineus with over 18 years of medical device experience including engineering leadership roles within Medtronic Spine and Cook Medical. During his career, Will has demonstrated a passion for product design innovation and is listed as an inventor on over 50 issued/pending patents. He also brings a proven track record of commercially successful product launches that provided significant growth to those companies.

Vance Clement, CEO of Lineus Medical said, "Lineus Medical continues to develop its product portfolio, quality management, manufacturing and distribution systems. We are preparing for a rapid manufacturing ramp-up that is required to supply the United States once our first product, SafeBreak® Vascular, goes to market. Will brings a wealth of engineering experience to our company, having worked in several world class organizations. He will take the lead on all of these engineering fronts, and I'm sure
will put us on a path to success. We are extremely excited to have him join the team."

Will commented, "I'm excited to join the proven leadership team of Lineus Medical, where I can pull from my past successes to help fuel innovation and drive forward game changing enhancements to the vascular access market.  Lineus Medical's SafeBreak Vascular product is a simple but effective tool in the battle that nurses face every day - IV failure.  I look forward to bringing this product to market and helping patients avoid additional needle sticks that are necessary when they experience IV complications such as IV dislodgement."

Lineus Medical is the developer of a unique, patented, break-away IV technology that is being designed to work with a variety of medical tubing. Dislodgement of feeding tubes, IV lines, urinary catheters and any other type of medical line could be prevented by the device breaking into two pieces, and therefore protecting the patient's medical line. The company's first product, SafeBreak Vascular, fits into any standard IV tubing and will help prevent IV lines from failing, which occurs 46% of the time according to the clinical literature.1 SafeBreak Vascular is not yet FDA cleared and is not yet for sale.
