UC design innovation: New hope for the hated hospital gown
Date:5/14/2009

or their condition and mobility. It not only represents the patient's progressive physical improvement, it provides a psychological boost as well," said Brandewie.

Like all the UC-created gowns, it closes not via standard ties currently in use with hospital gowns but via a closure like a bathrobe belt. It's secure, comfortable, can fit to almost any size and is also more flattering to the human figure.

The gown has a full back and a kangaroo pocket in the front, recognizing that the patient will lie in bed, sit in a chair, stand and walk. Portions of the gown are made of special material to wick away moisture and sweat.

And in recognition of the reality that patients sitting or resting will be colder than those on the move, this gown comes with accessories: A scarf with a pocket, arm warmers, leg warmers and shawl, all made of bamboo jersey to integrate both extreme softness and anti-bacterial characteristics.

Explained Brandewie, "We created the accessories to serve both caregivers and care recipients. The pockets in items are necessary because patients really don't have a space that's always within reach for the small items they use and want, like a phone, chapstick and iPod. In hospitals, we found that nurses and patients were improvising with mini purses tied to the side of the bed for extra storage and were cutting up old socks for arm warmers. And a patient with a shawl doesn't have to call for a blanket and wait for it to be delivered."

AMBULATORY SEPARATES

The fully mobile patient could wear crop pants with a gown top. For comfort and care, these crop pants feature a stretch-jersey waist that is comfortable (and expands and contracts to fit a variety of sizes). Each leg of the calf pants has snaps along the outside seam in order to accommodate braces or swelling. The shorter length of the calf pants also ensure that patients won't trip over the hem.
