Braidlock Ltd is a UK based company which has been acquired by Crest Medical Holdings, the UK’s leading supplier of medical products to the First Aid, Occupational Health, Medical, NHS, Hospital and Retail sectors.

Crest Innovations, a division of Crest Medical Group, is delighted to add Braidlock®’s product portfolio to its expanding range of innovative medical devices and will continue to develop Braidlock. The Braidlock® product portfolio focuses on providing clinicians with the latest in innovation and technology for medical catheter and tubing securement across a wide range of therapy areas.

Focused on our core values of Quality, Safety, Innovation and Service, we are working with healthcare professionals to deliver modern, cost effective and safe healthcare which also materially improves patient experience. In doing so we are becoming a supplier of choice to healthcare organisations globally.


To revolutionise the process of medical line fixation and adjustment. In an environment where over half of the 500 million lines utilised annually become inadvertently moved or dislodged, we are focused on enabling the Braidlock® device(s) to rapidly become the global standard for line securement and thereby contribute materially both to improved patient comfort and safety, as well as to more cost-effective healthcare provision in this area.

“Our Mission is to provide the global standard in line, drain and catheter securement.”


Braidlock® is committed to bringing a safer, faster and cheaper solution to clinicians and patients for line securement.

Our intentions are to:

Ensure safety. Our research team is constantly reviewing best practice in medical device safety and ethics to ensure the Braidlock® remains safe and fit for purpose while offers other benefits such as reducing infection risk and increasing patient comfort. Braidlock® has minimal skin contact and thus the area around a wound site can be cleaned much more easily.

Work with clinicians and all healthcare providers. Through a message of consensus, team building, global research and best practice, we are introducing this revolutionary device, facilitating the work of over-burdened medical professionals and enabling them to concentrate more time on their patients.

Support research and innovation. Braidlock® welcomes inquiries from teaching hospitals and other research bodies which seek to advance research in surgery, anaesthesiology, transplants, infection control and more. By telling us how we can improve our products we can make sure what we create works perfectly for you and your team. Please Contact us if you have any feedback or suggestions.


Since 2004, we have been developing and trialling novel products for chest drains, paediatric umbilical catheters, peripheral lines and more. As a result, the initial medical device has been improved over the years as part of an iterative process.
