The new NBV PD Belt is designed for comfort to provide smooth contact with the skin, affordability, and easy maintenance. Because of its elastic feature, it adjusts itself during stomach expansion and contraction. The photograph shows a belt size of 33–38”. Other sizes can also be supplied.
The NBV PD belt snugly fits around the waist, with the catheter hidden inside the pocket. The elastic part of the belt is hidden into sleeve. It is developed by NBV Innovations, LLC, and professional seamstresses. It is designed for any man or woman. The belt can be reversed depending upon which side the catheter exit site is located.
It is made out of Poplin material to add smoothness to the belt especially when it hugs the skin all day and night. If preferred, we can also supply in cotton. No Velcro will come in contact with the skin, as is common with some of the belts in the market.NBV Innovations, LLC
Pack-m-Ups™ are a new kind of pill organizer and medication reminder. They are convenient and easy to use, and they work well as a daily, weekly, or monthly pill organizer.
Pack-m-Ups use a secure press-and-seal closure that makes it easy to open and close the moisture-resistant pill compartments. Pack-m-Ups are perforated so you can use them connected as a weekly pill organizer, or separate them to carry just what you need for the day.
Pack-m-Ups are made from a durable, flexible, and transparent material, so you can view your medications at a glance. And, you can personalize the write-on surface with a pen or marker to remind yourself of the day and time to take your pills. So, leave your pill box at home and use Pack-m-Ups when you are out and about, at work, shopping, or on extended business or pleasure travel.MedActionPlan.com, LLC
The PD Belt is a patented revolutionary product used by thousands of patients to help stabilize the exit site while securely storing the catheter tube and transfer unit. The belt was created by a former peritoneal dialysis patient for his personal use to fight bouts of peritonitis while on CAPD and CCPD. The belt was so successful, he began the process of producing the belt for others. Since its inception, the PD Belt has undergone numerous changes to improve performance and comfort. The PD-Belt comes in 5 convenient sizes to accommodate a wide range of patients: Pediatric (16”–24”), Small (23”–36”), Medium (30”–44”), Large (36”–48”), and XL (46”–58”).
Currently, the belt is the only device on the market to receive Medicare’s approval as well as a Medicare reimbursement number. This product is latex-free. 3 belts per package.Frank Stubbs Company
The PD Panty comes in two styles: day and night.
The “day” version has of a pocket for the port at the end of the transfer set tubing to rest in that is just below the waist band on the inside of the garment. A “guide” that is open at both ends serves as a guide for the transfer set tubing to “thread” through and rest in the pocket above the guide in the inside of the panty. This protects the exit site from being injured by pulling of the tubing, as well as keeps the transfer set tubing from dangling.
When wearing the PD Panty, the port and transfer set tubing is not visible from the outside of the under garment. The panty provides safety, comfort, convenience, and a sanitary means of caring for the exit site. Made of cotton and cotton blends, the panty can be washed and cleaned with regular laundry detergent. Available in sizes from small to XX large.
The “night” version consists of the pocket on the outside and guide on the inside. The additional feature of the PD Panty “night” is that the garment has a button hole on the side of the garment between the guide and the pocket to allow the transfer set tubing to thread through the guide and come out to the outside of the garment through the button hole. The port again rests in the pocket on the outside of the garment. The garment is called the PD Panty ”night” because the button hole allows the patient to connect to the Cycler without having to pull the underwear off or pull the underwear down. The guide protects the connection as the patient dialyzes and or sleep. The PD Panty “night” can be worn at any time.PD-Uwear, LLC

Many of the patients who use the PD Security Band enjoy activities such as walking, jogging, basketball, golf, cheerleading, tennis, gardening, and so much more. Whatever your activities, you’ll enjoy the security and comfort of the PD Security Band.
“My patients who use the PD Security Band have the healthiest exit sites compared to my patients who do not use it.”
