A new hospital gown design could ensure patients don’t break the internet with their butts hanging out.
The Associated Press reports the “Model G” gown looks kind of like a wrap-around robe in order to seal up that drafty backside and free up the hand currently used as a full moon preventer by holding the unattached parts of the gown shut.
Credit for this awesome invention that should have happened decades ago goes to the Henry Ford Innovation Institute. Apparently the folks over there finally realized gowns can be easy to put on without the rear loophole.
The design was first introduced in 2013 on what were probably very grateful patients on a few floors at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Since then, the institute has continued making improvements to the gown using feedback from patients and staff.
If anyone complained, it was probably the proctologist.
Plans are being discussed to make 35,000 gowns for use at six Henry Ford Health System hospitals and 29 medical centers. The institute is ready to license the design to other manufacturers to use in other places. Until then patients, just keep balling that robe in your hand.
