DRYPro® now has Latex FREE PICC Line protectors!Completely waterproof, secure PICC Line Protection!
Don’t let a latex allergy hold you back from a better quality of life, DRYPro® now has Latex Free PICC line protectors!
The DRYPro® is a surgical latex sleeve (now also latex free sleeve) that easily fits over a PICC line and vacuum seals to fully waterproof it, even when submerged. Developed by Dr. Roy Archambault, DPM, ABFS, The DRYPro® gives people with PICC lines, IV or wounds the opportunity to shower, swim or endure the elements without the worry of water damage.
If you’re receiving infusion therapy for antibiotics, chemotherapy, hydration, or TPN (total parental nutrition) and have a PICC line our product you'll be able to take a relaxing and refreshing shower. Vascular Access health care professionals, infusion nurses and home infusion companies are using our PICC protector to keep their patients level of health and quality of life high.
When the DRYPro® is made available to patients, the doctors win because the site will remain stable, the PICC clean and dry, and they don’t’ have to worry about the patients getting their line wet. The patients win because it gives them their quality of life back. Not only can they shower and bathe without any doubt of getting the sight wet and returning to the office, often paying an additional fee, but they can actively swim, dive and enjoy water sports.
The DRYPro® uses our same vacuum seal over your PICC or IV line, but is tan colored and open on both ends to keep your hands free for use. You can shower, bath, swim with a PICC line, with complete waterproof protection. To size the DRYPro® for PICC lines measure the circumference of the forearm and the bicep. The protector can be trimmed to fit anyone.
Here's what others think about our DRYPro® PICC Protector-
'Dear Dry Corp,
I was truly thankful for the PICC protector on a recent trip to Las Vegas. I had just been diagnosed with a staph infection prior to making my spring break trip. With the PICC protector I was able to enjoy the swimming pools and the wonderful sunshine!!!
“To Whom It May Concern:
I can't thank you enough for this product. My daughter, Kalyn Faggart, age 16, has had a PICC line in her arm since February 2007. Prior to the illness and the PICC line, swimming was a huge part of her summer. We went through last summer trying various things, (plastic bags, waterproof tape, etc.). Nothing worked and she was unable to swim. A month ago she got the news that the PICC would be in for yet another summer. Shortly after that, we saw your brochure in our doctor's office. I brought it home and immediately ordered one. This product is FABULOUS!!! It has given her part of her life back. She is again swimming regularly and will be able to enjoy it this entire summer.
Kalyn is battling Neurologic Lyme Disease and Babesiosis for which there is currently no definitive cure. In addition to the disease, she has also been in a scoliosis brace for five years. She has to wear the brace 23 hours/day. Swimming was huge for her because when she was in the water, it didn't count against the time she was allowed out of the brace. As long as she was in the water, she could have as long as she wanted. Not only was she battling the disease, but she was having to stay in her brace the entire 23 hours with only 1 hour break because she could no longer swim.
As a parent who has already seen their child go through so much, to find a product that allows her to have this much fun and freedom again is a God-send! No price can be put on seeing the thrill on her face and watching her play in the water with her family again. She is currently progressing well in this latest treatment regimen and will hopefully have the PICC line removed by Fall. She had already accepted the fact she wouldn't be able to swim this Summer again, but thanks to your product, she's gotten an unexpected gift!!!
I'm recommending your product to EVERYONE I'm involved with concerning Lyme Disease. I'm taking the three extra brochures that came with our cover to our specialist in Georgia this week along with pictures of the product in action. He has a lot of patients with PICC lines and I'm sure they'll be as glad as we were to find this!! I'm also sending an e-mail to the NC Lyme Foundation, of which I'm a member, highly recommending your product.
I sent two photos....this was her first time back in the water swimming full force!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!”
