ivWatch, LLC, a leading IV safety company, has announced its expansion into the United Kingdom, a key market with a strong focus on enhancing IV therapy outcomes. With a growing need to protect patients from unpredictable IV complications, ivWatch’s patient monitoring innovation aligns perfectly with the UK’s initiative to address IV extravasations. As the world’s only medical device capable of detecting infiltrations and extravasations at the earliest stages, ivWatch’s technology launch is opportune. With FDA clearance, the CE mark, and registration with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the UK, ivWatch is poised to significantly impact the region.
To support its expansion efforts, ivWatch has appointed Helen Stephens as the Vice President of Sales for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).

Her expertise will be instrumental in driving growth in the EMEA region and other high-demand global markets. Reporting directly to President and CEO Gary Warren, Helen’s diverse background will strengthen ivWatch’s leadership team and pave the way for further expansion.
Gary Warren expressed his pride in bringing ivWatch’s innovation to a market deeply committed to improving healthcare and eliminating preventable injuries in IV therapy. By providing a product that supports clinicians in addressing this global problem, ivWatch aims to make a positive impact on both patients and healthcare professionals. Helen Stephens shared her enthusiasm for joining the ivWatch team and contributing to the advancement of infusion therapy through innovative products.
