I would like to find something that offered a little more protection from sharp edged objects, such as a sleeve made from plastic coated nylon mesh or kevlar mesh. It would have to be ventilated so that it could breath freely, and a zipper would be helpful so that it could fit snugly; not tight, just snug. I’m very active with my hands and arms.
Does such a thing exist? I was hoping to find a catalog, but nothing so far. I may cross-post this message to the patients’ forum, and another hemo website forum. Thanks,
Rusty, I removed the links because when I clicked on them, they took me to Tripod or to another website that didn’t have pictures of your access.
I think most people don’t wear anything to protect their access unless they’re doing something that could harm it, like playing sports or working in an environment where it could get bumped. When you wear anything over your fistula, you have to be very careful that it’s not tight.
There are arm guards that are used by athletes like the one in the link below (I found it on Google looking for “forearm guard”).
