When it comes to medical products, innovation and creativity have always been welcomed in order to help out those in need. The need for quality items is even more important when it comes to children given their special needs, especially when it comes to not losing their sense of fun and comfort. Inspired by events in her own life and the medical diagnosis of her daughter, Paige Brattin established Worthy Brands, a company that makes medical patches and other products primarily for those diagnosed with amblyopia or cancer. The entrepreneur went on to showcase her product on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank,’ season 15, episode 1. For those eager to learn more about the brand and its current whereabouts, worry not because we have your back!
Worthy Brands: Who Are They and What Do They Do?
All the way from Honolulu, Hawaii, Paige Brattin has been active in the world of business for a very long time, having once operated a maternity boutique. In 2009, she became a mother to her daughter Eddy, having left the world of business behind the previous year. Not long after, the little girl was diagnosed with refractive amblyopia. Those diagnosed with this condition often have differing focuses in their two eyes.
The standard solution to refractive amblyopia is for the person to wear a patch over the “stronger” eye so that the other eye can adjust and become better on its own. However, both mother and daughter were far from satisfied with their options when it came to the patches needed for Eddy’s diagnosis. This was primarily because the available products were both uncomfortable and felt outdated.
Building upon her experience as a businesswoman and a mother, as well as her daughter’s feedback, Paige launched See Worthy Patches, a line of patches under the brand Worthy Brands that have become beloved for being comfortable, breathable, visually appealing, and child-friendly. Paige launched another product after her father was diagnosed with lymphoma and had to go through the grueling process of chemotherapy.
Port Worthy Patches were created by Paige in order to minimize the discomfort caused by medical ports to those going through cancer treatment. The two major product lines of Worthy Brands are patches focused on either those diagnosed with vision problems or those using chemoport care. The simplicity and yet the necessity of the products provided by Worthy Brands have helped it become quite popular. The company also sells a few accessories that go well with its products.
