Finally, gowns get a face-lift! Students from the North Carolina State University have been working on these designs.

“We created a gown that will allow the mattress to be the mattress. The gown is open backed for high-risk, immobile patients so the areas on the body (most susceptible to pressure ulcers) can be healed from the mattress technology, without fabric bunching in between,” – Brooke Brandewie, North Carolina State University

Really looking forward to seeing the results of their work in the scheduled fashion show on June 12th, 2009 😀
