InventHelp®, America’s largest invention submission company, announces that two of its clients, inventors from Florida, have designed a disposable pad that absorbs the secretions, mucus and dribbled saliva from a tracheotomy tube. This invention is patented.
“Krystal Care” allows the tube to be inserted through a central hole in the pad which prevents garments from becoming soiled. This design could promote hygiene, comfort, privacy and dignity for users. The easy to use invention could also prevent the patient’s garments from having to be removed and washed each time.
Krystal Care would consist of a an absorbent cotton square pad with plastic lining that measures 10 inches by 10 inches. The invention would feature a ½ inch hole in the center of the pad’s upper center. The pad would rest on the chest area of the patient while the patient threads the tracheotomy tube through the back of the hole. Any discharge would land on or would be absorbed by the pad. The pad can be discarded when no longer needed. Variations of Krystal Care would include the following: a box that dispenses 15 to 100 pads, antibacterial pads, small, medium and large sizes, as well as a size for pediatric use.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor. For more information, telephone Dept. 09-MIM-3379 at (800) 851-6030.
