Comfortable Clothing for Dialysis and Chemotherapy Patients Designed by Nurses.
BRIDGEPORT, CT October 18, 2007 – Access Wear ( www.accesswear.com
) distributes a line of heavyweight fleece and micro-fiber clothing designed by dialysis nurses specifically for patients receiving dialysis and chemotherapy. Equipped with strategically placed zippers, the comfortable and fashionable apparel provides warmth and modesty to patients undergoing treatment.
“The temperature in treatment units are often uncomfortably cold to keep down bacteria levels and minimize the risk of infection to patients with compromised immune systems,” said Mike Jacabacci, vice president of sales and marketing.“Access Wear clothing provides warmth to the patient without hindering the nurses ability to connect dialysis equipment to the ports. A very important garment feature to both the patients and medical professionals.”
“We design our garments with several important things in mind,” tells Jacabacci.“The first is patient comfort. We use heavyweight 50/50 cotton and polyester blend fleece that keeps the patient warm and is durable enough to withstand
many washings over the course of treatment. We also carefully considered style and color selection to provide a product that is similar to fleece apparel on the market to consumers today. Dark colors were selected so that any fluid stains, such as blood, would not ruin the garment.”
The cotton and polyester blend fleece clothing line has a selection of tops, jackets and pants in several colors with durable, color coordinated molded plastic zippers. Zippers are strategically positioned at the location of access ports, called fistulas or grafts. Garments are available with zipper access in the left or right arm; left, right or full chest; and the left or right thigh. Adult sizes range from medium to XXX large.
Access Wear clothing is an affordable option with prices ranging from $30 to $40 per garment. Low-income patients may qualify for a micro-grant up to $30 from agencies such as The National Kidney foundation.
Access Wear is family owned business founded in 1997 by two nurses in response to patient complaints of cold temperatures while receiving treatment. The company that distributes clothing designed for dialysis and chemotherapy patients to provided warmth, comfort and modesty during treatment.
