Hospital Gown Redesign In The Works

04.20.09 | FL News Team

An North Carolina State University professor is on a mission -- making you more comfortable when you are in the hospital. Textile design professor Traci Lamar is working on a better hospital gown that feels better and conceals more.

People have also complained about hospital gowns that are too revealing, too thin, and too hard to tie. Some hospitals have better attire for the patients but it is more costly. The research has been underway with the help of a 236-thousand-dollar grant and they plan to show off what they have come up with next week.
