IV Shirt Graphicjpg

BRANDON– You’ve made a trip to the ER and require an IV–if this is a situation you know well, you know that those hospital gowns don’t cover much. 

That’s where Cindy Roundtree comes in. She’s created the IV shirt. Velcro down the side and front of the shirt allows you to move about with the IV, without the inconvenience of the gown. Roundtree told WAPT that she made the shirt for a cancer patient with an IV she cared for. He needed mobility and the hospital gown was in his way. She’s applied for a patent and for the hit investment reality show Shark Tank so she can get the shirts made.
