According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, over 2.5 million Americans are currently living with an artificial hip. With the percentage of patients aged 45-64 having gone up 123% in 2014, the simple fact is that hip replacements are becoming more and more common among generations of Americans who wish to stay active. More likely than not, you know someone who will need an artificial hip in their lifetime, chances are, so could you.
Bimla Picot, CEO and founder of Reboundwear®, went through this exact experience with her own mother, who required hip replacement surgery. She struggled to find post-surgical apparel that was both comfortable, stylish, and most importantly, practical for recovery.
New York City hospitals are some of the best in the world, and do an amazing job of preparing you for any surgery, no matter how big or small. World-renowned health care professionals at these hospitals provide patients with informative pre-op classes and extensive packets on how to prepare, what to expect, and how to recover. Tips include detailed guides on what to eat, how to handle your medication load, and a comprehensive recovery timeline. In most materials though, there is no mention of what to wear pre or post surgery, how to stay most comfortable, and how not to become re-injured by dressing while unstable. Typically, the patient is told to wear loose clothing. Unless you are like Houdini, however, getting in and out of regular clothing after hip replacement surgery is very difficult.
