HELLO, EVERYONE AND THANKS FOR VISITING THE INVISIVAD T-SHIRT WEBSITE!!!!
I would like to introduce myself. I am Janice Billingslea, Owner of Discreetly Designed Medical Accessories. I have designed/invented a customized T-Shirt called the LVAD T SHIRT or InvisiVAD T-Shirt, for patients who have been implanted with the Heart Mate II or LVAD heart pump. LVAD recipients can wear this garment to house and carry their life sustaining equipment. THE InvisiVAD T-Shirt allows the LVAD recipient to discreetly conceal the LVAD equipment under their clothes. The Heart Mate II equipment consists of two 14 Volt batteries, a system controller and battery cords. The T-Shirt houses the equipment in customized pockets and encasements. These concealed encasements allows the LVAD recipient to maintain their dignity and integrity by providing privacy. Traditionally, patients have worn a holster that is worn outside of the the clothes which exposes the ten pounds of equipment. The holster is heavy and often causes the wearer to slump impacting their mobility. With the InvisiVAD T-Shirt, the wearer can get back to leading a normal life and not be restricted by the batteries or the twenty inch cords being exposed that can often be hazardous and life threatening.
My InvisiVAD T-Shirt was originally invented for my husband who was implanted with the Heart Mate II LVAD in August 2012. I did not want him to be embrassed by wearing the equipment openly. I wanted him to maintain his dignity and get back to the quality of life that he was accustomed to as a Businessman, and, an involved man in our church and community.
This was a God Inspired Idea and has grown into a product that I know other LVAD patients will benefit from. Our company takes pride in designing garments to conceal life sustaining equipment for patients so that their Dignity and Integrity will not be compromised.
WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!!! We are a company whose values are Dignity, INTEGRITY AND DISCRETION. I can be reached at (404) 401-3904 or (770) 964-0694.
