Description


healing touches

SecureDrain was created by Tina Lund, MSN, RN, a breast cancer survivor.  After her bilateral mastectomy surgery, two Jackson-Pratt (JP) drains were placed to aid with drainage.  She quickly realized that it was a huge pain to shower, get dressed, and really do anything that required two hands, on her own.  The drains just hung there with no support and nothing to hold them.  Her husband had to hold the drains while she showered - not a very realistic solution.

This problem drove Tina to find a solution.  Two weeks later, she began the design of a water-safe belt made of elastic with a hook and loop closure.  The belt allowed her to independently shower, accomplish tasks that required two hands and helped the drains to stay in place, making it easier to conceal them when leaving the house.


Tina started making the belts for others in 2012 and began selling them on Etsy.  Her plastic surgeon also began giving the belts to his patients at that time and continues to do so to this day.


In 2015, the SecureDrain brand was developed by HealingTouches LLC.  Frustration and determination, along with her doctor's support, led Tina to create a solution that can help millions of people heal, at home, with comfort and ease.
