Adaptive Clothing for PICU Patients
Adaptive clothing for our patients in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
We encourage early mobility which evidence supports to have better patient outcomes and decrease length of stay. For this, we would like our patients to be dressed. Many of our patients have central lines, arterial lines, etc used for medications to treat illnesses and injury. We are creating adaptive clothing to work around these lines to prevent the need from disconnecting the lines for traditional clothes. Decreasing the amount of entries into these lines decreases the chance for the patient to get an infection
