Most companies are started by business people whose sole purpose is to make a profit. PICCPerfect was started by a patient whose primary mission is to make a difference. Meet Emily Levy, our CEO and co-founder.
Emily’s been battling Severe Chronic Lyme Disease since 2007. And she had a PICC line in her arm for six months to deliver IV medications to fight her Lyme disease.
During that time, the nurses told Emily she had to protect her PICC line and the best way to do it was to cut up a sock.
Emily thought there had to be a better way so she decided to make a difference in the lives of the 6 million other PICC line patients.
She and her team created PICCPerfect, the only PICC line protector where form and fashion meet on equal ground.
So what makes PICCPerfect different? Nurses say it’s the antimicrobial, moisture wicking fabric. Patients love the colors and patterns.
But the biggest difference is PICCPerfect wasn’t created by a business looking to make a profit. It was invented by a patient named Emily who was looking to make a difference.
