The project

Drip stands are infusion support systems that are used daily among hospitalised patients. In 2009, Guillermo Puche, a nurse at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, noticed that hospitalised children were getting on the drip stand to move about the hospital, although the product was not prepared for this purpose. From this observation was born the first internal innovation idea at the Hospital: to create a paediatric drip stand with a platform for patients to move about safely. 

Pal-Joc is a drip stand (or drip pole) and a toy that lets children play while they receive medication and move about safely as if the drip stand were a scooter.

Current status

  • Marketed since 2012.
  • Museu del Disseny exhibition (2014). 


First internal innovation (Guillermo Puche), carried out in collaboration with the Escola de la Llotja, IDOM engineering and the Spanish Toy Safety Agency (AIJU).
