There are people with emotional or behavioural disorders, and they may need to wear diapers due to physical needs. While there are care centres in Hong Kong looking after them, removing their diapers not only causes hygiene problems for both wearers and the centres, but also increases the workload of caregivers.
HKRITA has developed the anti-strip jumper for these patients. It addresses the needs of organisations which take care of patients with emotional or behavioural disorders who may need to wear diapers due to physical needs.
The new garment is more comfortable than the old jumpsuit, and leads to patients being less likely to remove their diapers. The research results will also provide a comprehensive reference for similar organisations.
Some care centres were invited to take part in the project trial. The centre staff agreed that the new design is able to prevent residents from removing their diapers, and as a result, staff members can devote more time to taking care of the residents' other needs.
This project can also successfully improve the functions, cutting and design of the garment, and developed a brand new sizing system.
