I had the idea for Apeeling Bandage after drawing blood one day on a patient with coagulation problems. After I withdrew the needle, I placed a cotton ball at the site and asked her to hold it as I retrieved a bandage. When I turned back to place the bandage, blood was everywhere. I could not get this out of my mind for the remainder of the day. I went home and used my husband as my sounding board, and we discussed better ways to accomplish this task.
Our bandage provides a solution to this problem, as it provides a circular bandage with absorbent center already built in. This is easily placed without patient involvement and without moving your hand or eyes due to its patented peel tab. This will provide a huge advantage when working with someone who is physically or mentally disabled, with small children, and with animals. This will also lessen the exposure of the healthcare worker to infectious diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis.
Our objective is to present our product to the world in hopes of selling or licensing Apeeling Bandage to interested companies, and we have invested a lot of time and money to make this a reality.
