Textile design professor works to close hospital gowns
Monday, April 20, 2009
RALEIGH, N.C. -- A North Carolina State University design team is working to put an end to revealing hospital gowns, according to the News & Observer of Raleigh.
It's not the first time someone has tried to conceal what is sometimes exposed because of the gown's flimsy fabric and loosely tied open back. But North Carolina State textile design professor Traci Lamar has the financial backing and research to develop a restyled garment.
Researchers hope to have the product ready for market in about two years.
