Cancer patients often receive treatment through a PICC line. Care + Wear PICC Line Sleeves are made with a breathable comfortable cotton/lycra fabric that has an EPA approved antimicrobial treatment. The sleeve can be machine washed and the antimicrobial treatment will last at least 100 washes whilst maintaining 99.9% efficacy. The sleeve includes a mesh window which allows both airflow and visibility to the PICC line, allowing for any changes in the appearance to be seen easily.

***We recommend that you measure your bicep before ordering to ensure you get the right size. Get a friend to measure the circumference  of your bicep where the PICC line will be or is already inserted. If you are between sizes, please order a size down as the sleeves run large***

The idea for Care+Wear's innovative PICC line sleevs came after a friend's experience receiving treatment through a PICC line. Their friend was told to wear a sock to protect and cover the PICC line site, making the uncomfortable treatment even more uncomfortable. This bulky white sock became a constant reminder of the illness. They decided to create something new and better that would help patients living with PICC lines. They wanted to help them see themselves as people first, and patients second.

Overall length ranges between 9.5"-12", depending on the selected bicep size.

Care+Wear PICC Line Sleeve FAQs

  • A PICC line must be kept clean and dry to reduce the risk of infection and ensure it stays securely in its dressing. It is also advised that you avoid strenuous exercise or activities that may strain your arms for the same reasons. A PICC line cover is one method of effectively keeping your line secure and dry as you go about your daily life.

  • A PICC line cover is an effective way of making sure your PICC line stays dry in day to day life. For washing and bathing, you can wrap your arm tightly in cellophane or use a waterproof cover.

  • It is not recommended that you swim when you have a PICC line, even if you are wearing a cover. Because you are submerged in water for an extended amount of time it is difficult to be certain it will stay dry, and the movement of your arms when swimming mean that even a high-quality cover is at risk of coming loose.

  • A PICC line cover is a piece of material that has been specially designed to go over the PICC line so that it is held securely in place and has less of an impact on daily life. The Care+Wear PICC Line sleeve is a great option, as its cotton and lycra blend is comfortable, secure and breathable to ensure secure, hygienic covering.
