The Marlon is our unisex, half-zip, pull-over sweatshirt, offered in black. It can be ordered with the access in the right or left arm. An invisible zipper is used to keep the opening discreet and hidden to the common eye, allowing patients to wear the Marlon more places than just the dialysis center.
Our clothing was designed to meet the unmet needs of patients receiving treatment through port sites. Inspiration comes from our own families as we watch people impacted daily by the life-changing process of dialysis. Our clothing is functional and will keep patients warm and comfortable throughout the day.
Lost in Transplantation
One Gently Used Kidney, Free to a Good Home. When 48 year-old single mother, massage therapist and returning student Ellie makes it her mission to help a stranger she has no idea how much it will alter her own life. What starts out as a simple act of altruism turns into four years filled with unpredictable obstacles and beautiful epiphanies she never imagined. Lost in Transplantation is at times irreverent, inspirational, humorous and heartbreaking; an intimate story told with bold honesty and a lyrical voice that is both earnest and informative. Ellie's life-changing mission to help another human being will keep you turning the pages well into the night. It might even change your life.
Medical Dignity Garment
Medical Dignity Clothing has been created to offer comfort, modesty, and convenience to anyone who is going through dialysis, chemotherapy, or other infusion treatments.
The Medical Dignity Garment is a classic, white, button-down shirt with flaps and break-away sleeves designed to open directly over the areas that a port or central line would commonly be placed. Since most infusion treatments are administered in a common room with very little to no privacy, it eliminates the concern of the patient being exposed during treatment.
The Medical Dignity Garment is available in sizes for men, women, and children, and can be ordered online or over the phone.

NBV PD Belt
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.

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.
PD Panty/PD Brief
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 sleeps. The PD Panty "night" can be worn at any time.
