Clothing for Dialysis

RonWear Port-able Clothing is a line of clothing resembling a stylish sweat suit for patients undergoing dialysis or IV infusion therapy, keeping them warm, modest, and comfortable, with easy access to their fistula or port, through hidden zippers located in the chest, arm or legs for femoral artery access. Patients currently cut holes in their own clothes to access their fistula to prevent them from wearing a hospital gown, which is cold and immodest. The universal need in treatment is warmth, dignity, comfort and ease of access while retaining the normalcy of everyday living. RonWear Port-able Clothing solves this problem!
