North Carolina State Develops New Hospital Gown

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina State University has come up with a new hospital gown that does not leave patients grasping for the back of their garment as they walk the halls.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported one of the school's professors talked about the new, front-closing, gown during N.C. State's Fashion Week.

Designer Traci Lamar is not showing the gown now, to prevent patent infringements.

The new design will be tested this summer at WakeMed hospital in Raleigh. Kenneth Murray with the hospital says caregivers will get the first review of the garment. Murray says if the staff doesn't like the design, patients will never use it.

But if staff approves and the patients like the new design, he says it will be a big deal.
