CCS Product Design students Patrick Houin, Frantz Mondesir and Callie Clark-Galster worked with alum Michael Forbes, design director at Henry Ford Innovation Institute, to redesign the hospital gown. Recently Henry Ford revealed the new gown to the media and immediately professionals and patients were impressed with the work the students created.

CCS students not only had a hand in the initial concepts, but also worked on developing the prototype in order to get it ready for production. The gown is made to be warmer by using thicker material, works using snaps instead of straps, and is made for easy access when working with IV lines.
