Abstract

A concern for medical patients and caregivers is suitable apparel that provides comfort, dignity, easy dressing and access to the body without unnecessary body exposure. Critically ill patients' fragile skin is easily damaged when handled and patients recovering from broken limbs or surgery experience the need for easier ways to dress and accommodate medical devises and treatment.
Modular medical apparel provides slip-on and snap-seam construction of shirts and pants to meet treatment needs and pulling overhead or up the body is avoided. Plastic snap closures enable the patient to wear the apparel during routine examinations, x-rays, chemo therapy, MRI and other treatments, eliminating change of clothing and body exposure. The apparel is adaptable to amputees and has the appearance of sportswear. Optional features include, but are not limited to, removable sleeves, flexible seam closures, moisture control, antimicrobial, stain resistant, flame retardant, and Velcro, stainless steel or plastic fasteners.

  • [0019]
    The concept of modular medical apparel has already been tested on a cancer patient who had lost most of his mobility and was receiving home health care and a patient critically injured in an automobile accident resulting in several broken limbs. The design of the product was based on:
    • The desire to provide the patient with comfort and dignity (in place of the traditional hospital gown design)—semi-fit to look like sportswear.
    • The need to minimize movement of the patient to avoid bruising and skin tearing injury—patient lies on side, apparel is slipped on, patient rolls over on back, apparel is snapped on front side; and then removable sleeve is snapped in place without disturbing IVs and other medical equipment. The same procedure is used to slip on pants without disturbing catheters.
    • The need to minimize patient bed sores—less fabric to bunch up and create impressions in skin which lead to bed sores and bruising. No fabric tie knots to do the same.
    • The need to allow a caregiver easier patient clothing changes; and easier access to IVs, catheters and other medical tubing and equipment—regular clothing prohibits easy changing when IVs or catheters are in place. You cannot put on a regular shirt if the patient is connected to IVs and other medical equipment.
    • The need for clothing that can be worn from bed or a hospital room to an outside location or in the public without embarrassment to the patient.
  • [0025]

    • As shown in the attached drawings and photographs, sizing for adults and children in short, medium and tall lengths as well as small, medium, large and extra large;
    • Modular shirts in three (3) lengths (hip length, thigh length and knee length) and two sleeve lengths (short and % length);
    • Optional pocket construction to hold medical monitor equipment;
    • Removable raglan sleeve (fastens on and off when changing clothes and can be removed without losing integrity of shirt.
    • Snapped non-removable raglan sleeve (for access to IVs, etc.).

    • As shown as the above referenced drawings and photographs, sizing for adults and children in short, medium and tall lengths as well as small, medium, large and extra large;
    • Pants in three (3) lengths (boxer shorts length, knee length and ankle length);
    • All pants have extra long rise to accommodate catheter, diapers and other medical equipment;
    • Draw string with elastic waist;
    • Hidden fastener plackets on the entire length of one side;
    • Hidden fastener plackets on the entire inseam;
    • A non-binding ankle band on the bottom of long pants; and
    • Optional detachable pant legs for amputee patients.
    THE WAY A PERSON (PATIENT OR CAREGIVER) WILL USE THE INVENTION
  • [0052]
    The modular medical apparel slips onto the patient's body rather than pulling over the head or tugging on arms and legs to pull on bed clothing. The apparel slips on one side of the body by rolling the patient on his side; then the patient is then rolled over and the apparel is then fastened in placed without disturbing medical tubing and other equipment. Limited motion of the patient is required to fully undress or dress a patient.
  • [0053]
    The removal sleeve and reversible option (front to back) is one of the most important features of the three shirts (three lengths—hip, thigh and knee lengths). Not only does the removal sleeve make changing clothes easier but it provides access for medical equipment (IVs, etc.) while keeping a patient warm and comfortable. The feature was designed for both the caregiver and the patient. Pants are constructed to allow a slip-on feature rather than a pull up on the patient. The pants will be easier for the patient who is bedridden and requires a caregiver to assist in dressing, as well as for the patient who is recovering from knee surgery, loss of limb or in sports medicine therapy.
  • [0054]
    The hidden fastener placket on the shirts and pants was designed to protect the patient from minor skin intrusions in addition to avoiding discomfort to the patient. Shirts can be slipped onto the patient and the pants can be slipped on the patient as well. Slipping on the apparel from the side of the body avoids pulling clothing overhead or pulling garments up the legs—both procedures are difficult when the patient is not able to help dress himself. Drawings indicate the hidden fastener plackets and show how the apparel opens for the easy slip-on features.
  • [0055]
    The modular medical apparel was tested on a cancer patient who had lost most of his mobility. The design of the product was based on:
    • The desire to provide the patient with comfort and dignity (in place of the traditional hospital gown design)—semi-fit to look like sports wear.
    • The need to minimize movement of the patient to avoid bruising and skin tearing injury—patient lies on side, apparel is slipped on, patient rolls over on back, apparel is fastened on front side; and then removable sleeve is snapped in place without disturbing IVs and other medical equipment. The same procedure is used to slip on pants without disturbing catheters.
    • The need to minimize patient bed sores—less fabric to bunch up and create impressions in skin which lead to bed sores and bruising. No fabric tie knots to do the same.
    • The need to allow a caregiver: easier patient clothing changes; and easier access to IVs, catheters and other medical tubing and equipment—regular clothing prohibits easy changing when IVs or catheters are in place. You cannot put on a regular shirt if the patient is connected to IVs and other medical equipment.
    • The need for clothing that can be worn from bed or a hospital room to an outside location or in the public without embarrassment to the patient.
