USEFUL LARYNGECTOMY PRODUCTS

From time to time we will highlight useful Laryngectomy products designed specifically for those living as a Lary. Often these will be to assist other people such as health or emergency workers to identify you as having unique needs.

MASKS FOR LARY’s

COVID-19 has presented a new challenge for Lary’s – to find a face mask that will cover a stoma.

One of our Lary’s has come up with a solution, courtesy of his wife Faye who is a skilled seamstress. Faye makes these creations to order and has a range of fabrics available – too many to put on the site. There is even a matching mask available for partners.

These are not medical masks but they are double layered and suitable for general protection in COVID-19 times.

COST: $10 for LARY MASK, $5 for STANDARD MASK

NECK BREATHER SEAT BELT COVER

An ongoing safety issue for a Lary is how to alert emergency responders you are a ‘neck breather’. We will cover this as a wider issue later.

However, If you are in a situation where you unable to communicate you need to let people know quickly. There currently a number of ways to do this such as stickers or Medic Alert products.

Another option is this seat belt cover (again created by Faye) that fastens over your existing seat belt with velcro so it can easily be moved from one car to another, or from passenger to Driver seat.

COST: $17
