We provide confidence for chronic illness patients treated with PICC lines with our functional and fashionable medical accessories!
About this project
PICCPerfect aims to put confidence back into the lives of chronic illness patients treated with PICC lines through its functional and fashionable medical dressings. Co-founded by Lyme Disease survivor, Emily Levy, PICCPerfect strives to meet the needs of patients being treated with PICC lines to improve their quality of life.
PICC lines are peripherally inserted central catheters that are typically inserted through a vein in the upper inside arm to disperse medication directly into the heart. PICC lines are used to treat a variety of chronic illnesses from cancer to lyme disease and many more. Currently, PICCPerfect is undergoing its first round of production creating PICC line covers. The covers are comfortable, hygienic, and stylish.
PICCPerfect’s first product will be a PICC line protector that combines fashion with function for all medical conditions that require a PICC line. PICCPerfect’s mission is to help every person with chronic illness to still feel good, and get that extra confidence boost while going through treatment. Our mission at PICCPerfect is to turn #LymeintoLemonAid.

Risks and challenges
After our project is funded, there may still be risks and challenges related to production and distribution. One of our main challenges is working toward economies of scale, and making the product more affordable. Other challenges may include delays of production and delivery that could be beyond our control. In the event that this occurs, we will do our best to satisfy customers, despite the delay. Since our manufacturer is located in the U.S., we believe it will be easier to communicate with the manufacturer and to fulfill orders. We also commit to maintaining transparency and good communication with our customers.
Since PICCPerfect is in its first phase of production, we are still conducting market research in order to better understand customer needs. Currently, we are limited to offering our product in two solid designs and two patterned designs. However, as we continue to grow we will offer a larger variety of designs and sizes, and we want to expand to children’s sizes and designs. Customer feedback will be crucial for improving our product and developing ideas for future products. Please go to our online form to provide feedback on sizing, pattern/solid color suggestions, etc.
