Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp attempts to submit clients’ inventions to companies for review.

InventHelp, America’s largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Wisconsin, has designed a hospital gown that would cover a disoriented or dementia patient’s IV site so that he or she does not tamper with the line and require a nurse or other qualified personnel to reinstall it. This invention is patented.

“Hospital IV Protector Gown” would include long sleeves that snap over the arms which would keep the IV out of sight and out of mind. This feature would eliminate the need for a nurse or other qualified personnel to reconnect the line repeatedly, which would save time and effort. Additionally, Hospital IV Protector Gown could provide comfort and avoid skin irritation or breakdown for bedridden patients.

Hospital IV Protector Gown would consist of a cotton gown producible in hallway and bed-mate versions. Both versions would feature rear ties and long sleeves. Each sleeve would feature an open seam along its top that would secure shut via snaps. The knee-length hallway version would provide adequate coverage for modesty and warmth while ambulating in public. The shorter bed-mate version would feature a crescent back with a thin edge in order to avoid irritation or breakdown of skin due to lying in bed for long periods of time. After an IV has been connected to a patient’s arm, the nurse or other qualified personnel snaps the sleeve seam together so that the IV is out of sight and can’t be tampered with. This design allows for the ease of monitoring a patient while keeping it out of the patient’s sight.

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. 10-JMC-905 at (800) 851-6030.
