A CLASS 1 MEDICAL DEVICE THAT WILL PROVIDE PROTECTION AGAINST INFECTION AND COMFORT AFTER SURGERY

Details: The shower shirt is a post-surgical, water-resistant, garment designed to offer post surgery support. This comfortble shirt allows for bathing and good hygiene after surgery and during dialysis. The shirt is designed to prevent post-surgical mastectomy drain sites, dialysis catheters and medical-ports from coming into contact with water while showering. The fundamental purpose of the product is to reduce the risk of infection while permitting chest surgery patients to bathe with normalcy. The clinical purpose of this product is to reduce post-surgical infections. Many surgical procedures involve the placement of drains, tubes, ports and catheters which penetrate the skin. This medical paraphernalia can act as a portal for bacteria to enter wound sites. Tap water contains bacteria; thus exposure to water while showering, significantly increases the risk of post-surgical infections. Patients are routinely instructed by physicians not to shower until drains, ports and catheters are removed. To facilitate its use, the shower shirt protects the sites from water but also designed with internal 'pockets' and 'straps' to support the weight of mastectomy drain tubes. For kidney/dialysis patients and medical port patients, the neck region is a turtle-neck design lined with micro-fiber, Velcro strap, and drawstring under jaw-line to assure a tight fit across the neck to protect catheters and ports which are normally placed under the collar bone region. The Shower Shirt is perfect for patients who have undergone a mastectomy, chest surgery, shoulder surgery, or other upper body procedures, as well as for ESRD patients and other patients using catheters and ostomy bags. Designed by a breast cancer survivor who understands what patients need in a water barrier product, the Shower Shirt will provide much needed relief and good hygiene during the stressful post-surgery time period. The Shower Shirt also works effectively as a catheter water protector for ESRD and dialysis patients and for people using ostomy bags. The Shower Shirt is a patented, Class 1 Medical Device that has been featured in healthcare and traditional print and television media.
