Nurse develops patent pending disposable hospital gown for patients

A registered nurse and inventor from Lawrenceville, Georgia, US, has developed a disposable hospital gown for patients.

A registered nurse and inventor from Lawrenceville, Georgia, US, has developed a disposable hospital gown for patients.

Although hospital gowns are effective for treatment and care of patients, but they do not offer much in terms of modesty.

The nurse developed patent pending DDH in order to provide a covering for the lower part of the body which is usually exposed in traditional hospital gowns.

This disposable garment not only eliminates embarrassment and frustration for hospital patients, but also gives them a sense of dignity, improves personal hygiene and promotes sanitary conditions, particularly for children and the elderly.

It is light-weight, which makes it convenient and comfortable for  patients to wear.

Moreover, this garment is claimed to be affordably priced.

The inventor said: “When my grandson was hospitalised recently, I realized how difficult it was to maintain any sense of dignity and privacy while wearing a hospital gown.”

“So I came up with a way to help hospital patients feel more comfortable in front of other people.”

The original design has been submitted to the Atlanta 3 office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.

With over 60 offices in US, Canada and Australia, InventHelp assists people in trying to submit their inventions or new product ideas to industry. InventHelp, however, does not provide advice on whether the idea is patentable or not. Such advice is provided by a patent attorney or licensed patent agent.

Established in 1984, InventHelp employs over 100 people at its headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which include researchers, illustrators, writers, customer service representatives and other staff.
