PICC Line Arm from Care + Wear

My good friend Chait Razdan started a company that makes arm bands that go over PICC Lines. You can customize the arm bands for a charity you want to support (hello Ben's Friends) or for a message you want to spread. It's a cool new medical product so I wanted to share it here. You can pre-buy it through Indiegogo here (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-band-improving-life-for-picc...).

There is no financial relationship although we may do a print for Ben's Friends if people like the idea. - Scott

From Chait:

Today we are proud to announce the official launch of Care + Wear. With cutting-edge designs and features, we hope to be able to help comfort, protect and inspire patients with fashionable medical accessories that also help support our foundation partners. Everyone has had a close friend or family member undergo some type of medical treatment and witnessed just how taxing it is; lives are completely altered for both the patient and their caretakers. Having experienced it first hand, Susan, Caroline and I combined our backgrounds to create a functional and fashionable treatment accessory that provides protection while increasing comfort during treatment.

We’re proud to have an experienced advisory board consisting of doctors, nurses, strategic growth and marketing professionals and successful entrepreneurs who have each dedicated countless hours to helping build Care + Wear. We proudly call the American Cancer Society, F Cancer and the Tyler Robinson Foundation partners. Most importantly, we’ve spoken to patients and asked for their feedback as well. We’ve heard countless stories of how the Band would have, and could improve a patient’s journey through long-term medical care. We are more inspired to bring our dream to life every day.

All the funds pledged will help us manufacture and distribute the first Bands to hospitals and patients, with a portion being donated to our foundation partners.

So join us, this is only the beginning.

Buy a Band. Support a Cause.

If you don't have money to buy a band, Press and Seal wrap works amazingly well. You can put it on singlehandedly ...it

keeps every thing dry and it's a snap to pull off. Of course this is only for shower wear or bathtub. The band that this article is talking about is one that you wear when you are NOT showering.....so break out the Press and Seal and go buy a band!!

I am grateful not to need one of these but the thing I like about this site is learning something new all the time. I know others that may be able to use it. And, heaven forbid, if I ever end up in that spot I'll have ideas of what to do.

Glad this was helpful.
