The SHOWER SHIRT™ Co. announced today, the principal/inventor of The SHOWER SHIRT™, Lisa F. Crites, was awarded a Patient Innovation Award from the University of Lisbon School of Business & Economics, Lisbon, Portugal. 

The only American-based organization receiving the award for ‘Patient Innovation,’ winners were chosen from a pool of more than 200 innovation eligible products. The advisory board, a combination of faculty professors from both the US and Europe selected six final award winners based on Caregiver Innovation, Collaborator Innovation, and Patient Innovation categories. The SHOWER SHIRT team will accept the award at the Patient Innovation Awards ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal, on July 10. Additional information on the award categories can be found at: http://us3.campaignarchive2.com/?u=7ed42017b5a721b88e1910afb&id=3ed232c283&e=819318ea6f

The SHOWER SHIRT™ is a patented, water-resistant garment which protects against the risk of post-surgical infections after chest surgery. Introduced to the US market in 2011, the product is now sold internationally in Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Israel. The inspiration behind the creation came after Crites was told she couldn’t shower for three weeks after bi-lateral mastectomy surgery due to post-surgical drains. “I began looking for a water-resistant garment for protection. Nothing existed so I utilized a trash bag,” said Crites, The SHOWER SHIRT CO., principal/inventor. “Insulted by being wrapped in a plastic trash bag, I felt a product needed to be created for future mastectomy patients, thus, The SHOWER SHIRT™ was invented.”

Four-years later, The SHOWER SHIRT™ is a Class 1 Medical Device registered with the FDA; has full patent status, sold online with Walmart.com medical device division, AMAZON, CureDiva.com, Health Products for You and multiple mastectomy boutiques and hospital-based retail locals across the United States.

“My goal is to make women feel better after the physical trauma of having their breasts amputated,” Crites added. “It stands to reason if a patient feels better physically, they will feel better emotionally, something severely needed after breast cancer and mastectomy surgery.”

The product is also being utilized for hemodialysis patients, bariatric and transplant patients; hernia, external defibrillator, rotator cuff surgery patients and also patients needing wound vacs, infusion pumps, and central lines.
