"Our CADD®-Solis system brings our expertise and innovation in smart infusion technology to the ambulatory setting, and we are pleased to see the CADD®-Solis infusion pump chosen for use at the Huntington VAMC."

The CADD®-Solis ambulatory infusion system is a clinically and technologically advanced portable pain management system that administers pain relief medications, including narcotics, to post-surgery, trauma, cancer and labor & delivery patients.

The CADD®-Solis infusion pump's compact, lightweight design promotes patient mobility which helps improve clinical outcomes, reduce patients' length-of-stay, and reduce overall treatment costs.
