“The best option for patients to discretely manage their leg bags and improve their quality of life.”
CathWear was founded in order to improve the quality of life for individuals who have undergone medical treatment by restoring their dignity and privacy during recovery.
While working as a specialist in Interventional Radiology, CathWear founder Brian Mohika, would hear consistent complaints from patients who had drains placed inside of their organs. These patients would complain about irritated skin from leg straps constantly sliding up and down their legs. To eliminate this movement, they would over tighten their leg straps, which in turn would reduce blood flood to their leg, further complicating an already bad situation. Patients also complained about inadvertently dislodging tubes while trying to undress or go to the restroom. In many instances this would lead to a trip back to the hospital for another placement procedure.
In addition to the myriad of medical complications associated with standard leg straps, patients complained of the daily stress associated with choosing clothing that would properly conceal their leg bags. Something as simple as wearing summer clothes such as shorts or dresses is simply not an option for many patients.
Brian realized that the standard method of managing leg bags was failing to address any of the complaints patients had been voicing to him for years. He decided to start working on a patent that would address all of these common complaints and eventually created the award winning CathWear Underwear.
CathWear places its faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to ensure we will provide the best possible products, while conducting honest and open business in private and in public to bring Glory to God.
Being able to serve society for a greater good is something that both Brian Mohika and Hector Arce (Co-Founder) forged while serving within the US Armed Forces. They each continue to carry this sense of duty with them as they embark on helping as many patients as possible with CathWear.
