PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) June 1, 2006 –-
Groovy Patches, the world’s only fun and stylish way to accessorize the sterile pad that surrounds the injection site of an insulin pump, announced today several new designs for diabetics who maintain a sense of individual style in everything they do. The new designs expand a variety of themes, including: sports, flowers, cool fabrics, funky textures, smiley faces and nautical designs.
Groovy Patches were designed by company founder and president, Dina Cole Klavon, who after years of living with diabetes decided to wear an insulin pump. “While the pump simplified my life, I found myself trying to hide the bright, white, medical-looking donut-shaped pad that surrounds the injection site. Then one day it occurred to me – don’t hide it, enhance it,” she said.
Groovy Patches are perfect for the beach, to use while exercising, splashing by the pool, playing sports and anywhere wet or dry that customers want to enhance their mood, look or overall style. They are designed to look like body art, with customers enjoying the freedom to change their art every time they change their injection site. “Confidence and self-esteem are important at every age, but especially for teens and young adults. Groovy Patches provide a fresh, fun way to accessorize what is otherwise something wearers try to hide – like I did,” Klavon said. “With Groovy Patches, I don’t hide anymore. And you’d be surprised how many people who once tried not to notice my pump now come up to me and compliment my cool Groovy Patches.”
In addition to providing fun and stylish accessories, Groovy Patches is committed to supporting research and educating customers and their families about diabetes, and offers links to related resources on their Web site. “These resources help me live with diabetes day-in and day-out, and hopefully they will add value to the lives of others affected by diabetes as well,” Klavon said.
