In 2014, we set out to change how patients cared for their PICC lines. We had loved ones told to wear tube socks on top of their lines, and we felt that there had to be something better than a sock! Over the years, we’ve heard from near and far how game-changing our covers have been. We’ve also heard how difficult it is to shower with a PICC line cover. We’ve explored partnerships and given recommendations but never really loved any of the options out there. For us, it’s been important to always collaborate with clinicians, patients, and designers to make a great product. Last year we began developing a solution for the shower.
Over the years, we’ve experimented with fabric, design, shape, and more. We’ve showered with a variety of options. And we’ve never loved what we could come up. And yet, we have kept getting comments from patients, caregivers, nurses, and loved ones asking for a better shower cover! Using saran wrap or a garbage bag over the line with tape to keep it in place is a horrendous solution. As someone with numerous broken bones, I’ve personally had to wear a trash bag on my arm while showering. It has never been a pleasant experience!
And so today, I am proud to announce the official launch of our new PICC line shower cover. This shower cover will keep water out of the PICC insertion point!
As with every product, it is of particular interest for you to share your thoughts with us. As an iterative design company, we are always looking to improve our products, and we would love to hear your feedback.
So please let us know your thoughts. We’re committed to doing everything possible to try and improve your experience, and we look forward to allowing you to shower!
