By design, the Cardiac Bear has an increased grade of firmness. When a patient needs to cough, sneeze, or laugh, they can hug the bear tightly against their chest to act as a brace, help ease the pain and to prevent their stitches from coming loose. This is the primary purpose of The Cardiac Bear.
There is absolutely no shedding with this material unlike ordinary stuffed bears. No worries about loose fibers compromising the cleanliness of the stitched area with the Cardiac Bear.
We now offer an antimicrobial Cardiac Bear!
Patients are less likely to lose the bear in bed compared to the folded towels used by some hospitals. The Cardiac Bear is easy to reach if it falls off the bed unlike pillows and folded towels because it has arms and legs to grab onto. We also now have an anti-microbial version, so if it does fall on the floor, bacteria is much less an issue. By the way, The Cardiac Bear is completely machine washable and dryable!
The Cardiac Bear can multitask! When a patient no longer needs it for health reasons, it becomes a memorable keepsake for their child or grandchild.
It makes a great statement that your hospital is doing everything they can to make the patient more comfortable both before and after surgery. Patients and their families often tell their friends how The Cardiac Bear has helped them recuperate quickly and comfortably after surgery.
The Cardiac Bear comes with a FREE removable t-shirt (or option to purchase a Dr. Scrub outfit like the one shown above) with your hospital’s logo and message you want to convey.
Quantity volume pricing is available.
All of The Cardiac Bears meet the CPSIA Government guidelines for consumer product safety.
And finally, a portion of each sale is donated to health-related charities.
