“Down with hospital gowns!”: what the new generation of hospital clothing looks like
Hospital gowns and “vests” will be replaced with style and comfort
It’s hard to find a man who would have liked to stay in the hospital. And it’s not just the unpleasant sensations from the procedures. And in the very atmosphere of the clinic and, not least, the hospital clothes: functional, but depressing, and even humiliating. But there will be improvements. And in the near future, the standard “vests” can be replaced by such comfortable and quite “normal” suits.
Yes, when we are ill, issues of appearance somehow automatically recede to the (hundred) second plan. But do not forget that clothing can also affect the human well-being. Research shows that just one type of hospital “uniform” makes patients feel anxious and sets them up for a negative mood. Not to mention its convenience and aesthetic side of the issue. Therefore, logically developing, the health care system is gradually getting to the design of clothing. And the real breakthrough in this area was the project of the company Inga WellBeing.
In collaboration with experienced designers, Inga WellBeing created a line that does not resemble a hospital as much as possible. Moreover, the prototype for one of the women’s models was the famous and classic dress with a smell from Diane von Furstenberg. Ladies are offered to undergo procedures in comfortable “kimonos” and soft, relaxed two-piece suits that can be easily worn separately. And for men, designers have prepared a comfortable suit that resembles home clothes, but certainly not a hospital gown.
The “hospital” collection is sewn from a soft fabric that is pleasant to the body. But its advantages do not end there. The design of the suits is designed so that the doctor can easily access the patient’s body for important procedures, such as injections, punctures, ultrasound or IVS. To do this, the clothing is equipped with special “secret” pockets and fasteners that are inaccessible to the outside eye.
The main goal of the new hospital clothing is to look as “normal” as possible, to set up patients for comfort and positive mood. And Inga WellBeing clearly managed this. No wonder their collection has received prestigious awards in the field of design and is already actively used in an increasing number of clinics. I wonder if it will get to us.
