The HemaStrap, by Hema Assistance Products, is a lightweight fabric strap that is comfortable, easy to use, and does not interfere with dialysis or infusion treatment. It is designed to secure and stabilize dialysis/infusion tubing during patient treatment to minimize tugging and painful infiltration.
Our patented strap comes in three (3) different sizes: adult large and small, and youth for pediatrics. The adult sizes (Hemastrap HA 600-077 or HP 540-077) can be adjusted quickly and easily by marking the hook area of the strap with a soft lead pencil or marker and trimming with scissors, leaving at least 3/4 of an inch of hooking. For most patients, adjustment of the youth Hemastrap (HY 540-077) will not be necessary.
The Hemastrap is designed to be worn around the patient’s wrist by inserting the hook strap through the black D-ring. Secure the strap by folding the hook fasteners, located at the end of the strap, against the felt. Loosen the infusion retainer straps on the dorsal surface of the wrist. After the infusion is started, secure the tubing under the retaining straps.
To place orders or for more information, a HemaStrap representative can be reached at 727-410-0150.
Hemowear, LLC was created out of a desire to produce a clothing line that would help people with medical needs. This line of clothing will enable those who are on dialysis, and/or chemotherapy to feel confident and comfortable while receiving medical treatment. The clothing is customized for easy access to port sites, permanent catheter and AV fistulas.
Our mission is to design, manufacture and deliver products that meet the unique needs of each customer by marketing the most appealing and widely desired casual wear with the customers’ medical needs in mind.
When it comes to securing PD transfer sets, simple is still best. Immobilé is one of the most innovative ways to secure PD transfer sets on the market. It remains the preferred choice for thousands of patients in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. A patented combination of hypoallergenic adhesive together with a Velcro hook-and-loop tab makes Immobilé cost effective, body trim, and very easy to use.
Immobilé was developed from patient requests for a device that not only secured the transfer set but that secured it in such a way as to allow normal active body movement (such as biking or skiing) without concern for the integrity of the set or access. Patients also wanted to eliminate the sticky step of pulling tape off the transfer set three or four times a day when releasing it for an exchange. When care is taken one Immobilé can be used for three days (up to 12 exchanges).
Many people prefer Immobilé to a belt because it is much more body trim, easier to use and yet, very effective.
- Easier and more cost effective than tape alone
- More body trim and less bulky than the belt
- Sterile product
- Available direct or through major distributors’ ancillary catalogs or formularies

INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze
INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze quickly controls and stops bleeding. INSTA-STOP Hemostatic Gauze is made from cotton, and is 100% plant-based with no animal products, eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction or irritation. The 2x2 gauze pad is designed for dialysis patients, as it controls the bleeding quickly and easily.
When INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze is applied to a bleeding surface or wound with slight direct pressure, and comes in contact with blood, the blood is instantly absorbed. As the blood is absorbed, and INSTA-STOP expands, it blocks the end of the blood capillary from the injury, which controls and stops bleeding and protects the wound.
INSTA-STOP Hemostatic Gauze is ideal for patients who are taking anti-coagulation medication, patients taking medication with anti-coagulation side effects, and for patients with blood coagulation disorders and reduction in blood platelets.
Features and benefits:
- Simple to use—just simply place it on a bleeding wound
- Adheres to the wound and reduces re-bleeding
- Allow use of both hands to complete bandaging
- Chemical-free, no prescription needed
- Safe for human use and the environment
INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze products are over-the-counter and have a 3-year shelf life (until opened). For more information, or to purchase INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze, please call or email us at the numbers below.
