Comfort Care Technologies Inc.: About Barbara Norton Ekey
Barbara Norton Ekey
Whether fighting cancer, researching for a cure or just getting out of bed in the morning, each of us has challenges in our lives.
What breast cancer survivor, Barbara Norton Ekey
, knows is how to turn a negative into a positive - changing sour grapefruit juice into a magical comfort elixir.
She's the inventor of the DRAIN DUO, the support system for post-surgical drains.
"Perhaps I had cancer in order to make a difference - to create calm, comfort and care for surgical drains," says Ekey
"Surgeon, nurse, and most importantly, patient letters and comments tell of how the invention makes for quicker recoveries, more mobility and less pulling and tugging.
Crafted of soft, absorbent, lightweight, washable materials, the DRAIN DUO
consists of two parts: the fully adjustable elastic belt(s) with plush backing: and the individualized, cushioned pouches with tube security hinges and/or extensions.
The DRAIN DUO
patent has been expanded to give latex-free support to not only the JP bulb drains, but also to compression drains, leg bags and more.
"Response to the DRAIN DUO
has been phenomenal.
After extremely positive results from a protocol study at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
, Comfort Care Technologies Inc.
now sells the invention to hospitals, surgical centers and physicians across the United States and Canada," adds Ekey
With 9 years of teaching experiences, 15 years of writing, 3 books, and television/radio appearances, Ekey not only serves as President of CCT Inc., but also gives in-services and motivational programs in North America and Europe.
energy, wit and enthusiasm will astound you.
