Clinically proven success
NIO Infant™ provides safe, rapid intraosseous access in the proximal tibia as an alternative to IV access in emergency medical situations.
NIO Infant™ is a manual IO device with an innovative Stepped Needle® which provides graduated penetration into the bone marrow cavity to help prevent over-penetration.
Safe on the bone2
The NIO has proven to be safe on the bone and resulted in zero incidents of bone fracture as observed by post-insertion x-rays.
Easily tolerates common user errors3
A recent study evaluated common user errors related to needle placement and found that even when placed up to 5cm from the correct insertion site, the NIO maintained an 85% success rate.
First attempt success rates as high as 98%1
Initial studies demonstrated an overall average success rate of 91.3% for the proximal tibia and 93.1% for the humeral head. The New York Institute of Osteopathic Medicine conducted an additional study which established a proximal tibia success rate of over 98%.
