Aussie Legend Creates Fun Hospital Gowns For Kids To Make Them Feel Like Superheroes

Aussie Legend Creates Fun Hospital Gowns For Kids To Make Them Feel Like Superheroes

A hospital can be a scary place for a kid, especially if they haven't really wrapped their head around why they're there.

They can be poked, prodded, injected, tested and more as doctors try to make them better again and it can be a very clinical experience.

That's why one Australian bloke has tried to put a bit of fun into their time in the hospital.

Jason Sotiris is behind the Supertee, which is a new take on the children's hospital gown.

Instead of it being the stock standard gown in a single colour, the Supertee looks like a superhero outfit and helps the kids feel like they have enough power to go through with their treatment or procedure.

Jason explains that the new look gown can help kids, parents and hospital staff 'change, access and bypass medical lines'.

"The Supertee aims to bring convenience, comfort and imaginative play to hospitals around the world," the company said. "Our campaigns provide unique opportunities for individuals, small businesses and corporates to show their support for families navigating through the challenges of hospital life with a sick child.

Jason was inspired to invent the Supertee after his daughter was diagnosed with a rare disease called histiocytosis.

The Aussie dad was terrified as he watched his one-year-old wake up in the middle of the night and throw up due to the potency of the chemotherapy.

He struggled to get her clothes off quickly and he came up with the idea to create the Supertee, which is an easily removable and easy to put on gown.

"Realising that this new venture would require funding and support he approached a friend who offered to invest in creating a prototype and after numerous failures the Supertees were launched in June 2018 at the very hospital that treated Angela," the company said.

They come in two designs and the gown allows for the underarms to easily unclip for a thermometer check as well as press studs to allow for the garment to be taken off quickly.

Jason said it improves hygiene, patient morale, reduces nurse calls and encourages imaginative play.

He hopes for the gowns to be used across Australia and help kids feel like superheroes as they go through the worst.
