Garment+ is a six-month project looking at how clothing can be made more user friendly for patients who have mobility problems. This includes people with rheumatological conditions, people who have had a stroke or those who have been injured.
Funded by King’s College London (KCL) Culture Institute and run by the Rheumatology Outpatient Department at King’s College Hospital in collaboration with KCL’s Academic Department, it aims to help improve patient wellbeing by designing everyday clothing that’s easier to put on and use.
Whether you’re a patient, relative or visitor, you’re welcome to come along and find out more at the Garment+ exhibition.
You will be able to try on the garments and give your feedback to help shape the new user-friendly clothing. A final exhibition, showcasing the final designs, is scheduled for February 2017 at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
