Soldiers' Angels Announces Special Wheelchair Covers for Veterans
Date:1/22/2009

Germ-fighting "dignity apparel" products specially-designed to the specifications of military support organization Soldiers' Angels are donated to VA facilities for combat wounded and veterans.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2009 -- Soldiers' Angels is once again stepping up to assist America's veterans, helping ensure they have the best support and equipment to meet their needs. With the assistance of RxBlendables, an innovative American textile company, Soldiers' Angels has developed high-quality, anti-bacterial dignity textile accessories that will be donated to VA facilities and veterans.

Special wheelchair covers and vests have been specially designed to be non-medical in appearance and help make medical equipment and treatments more comfortable while maintaining sanitary conditions. They are machine wash and dry, with moisture and odor resistance.

Twyla Choate, Soldiers' Angels VA Support Team Leader, reports that the first shipment of vests and covers has been well received by both patients and caregivers. "We have sent out close to 200 units to VA facilities so far. The Bonham VA in Texas couldn't say enough about how great and how needed they were! Nursing home patients really love them, and I have several more requests ahead for this great product."

Joe Palagyi, immediate past National Adjutant of theMilitary Order of the Purple Heart and an integral part of the project, says that word of these wonderful products is spreading quickly. "The impact of providing dignity items such as the wheelchair covers is being felt throughout the Veterans Service extended family! The California Department of Veterans Affairs, under Governor Schwarzenegger, has invited me to present the full line of dignity apparel to their first meeting of the year."

Additional apparel with features to accommodate paralyzed veterans and those with post-surgical needs are currently in development. Items will include dining accessories for clothing protection, furniture, bedding and auto seat protection, and specialty apparel. All products will be embroidered with the Soldiers' Angels logo in appreciation of the sacrifices of America's combat wounded and veterans of all ages.
