Complaining about being cold and all the clamps and tubing, her family knew there had to be a better way to keep her and other patients warm during treatments.
Dialysis Jackets all started with Sandra. Sandra's family wanted to find a way to keep her warm and comfortable throughout her treatments. Sandra was always cold during treatments and hated to have to roll up her sleeve to be attached to all the tubings and clamps and needles leaving her arm exposed and then trying to keep warm with a blanket on top of her - which often slid off. This just frustrated Sandra to no end; to the point that Sandra complained on each and every treatment that there had to be a better way. A better way for patients like herself to stay warm and comfortable during treatments. The complaining got so bad to the doctors and nurses, that her family started to think of possible ways to keep her smiling again and comfortable - and of course, to stop complaining. With Sandra's help and the family's input, the Dialysis Jackets was gradually born. Sandra and other patients tried out the the fleece jackets which are machine washable and stain resistant and loved them! The jackets helped tremendously in keeping control of body temperature and eliminating all the clamps and tugging on clothing and the access site.

I was constantly cold and freezing during my dialysis treatments, and hated all the clamps and tubing. I especially disliked being clipped on and tugged.
