Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) November 30, 2013
While medical researchers seek a cure for kidney problems, an inventor from Westbury, N.Y. focused her efforts on keeping those who must live with catheters more comfortable.
Her invention, the patent-pending Boxer Brief Nephrology Holders, is an alternative to the current leg belt system used to hold the drainage bags in place. Not only is this apparel more comfortable, it also improves mobility since it is less restrictive than the belts. As such, it gives wearers more freedom to be active and get out of the house.
Easy to wear and use, the accessory is also cost-effective, as it replaces conventional undergarments for catheter users. In summary, it is an affordable and practical enhancement to the quality of life for individuals with kidney problems.
"Having had personal experience with someone who used a catheter," the inventor said, "I wanted to give others in that situation a better way to wear the drainage bags than the leg belts."
The original design was submitted to the Long Island office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
