The Bare-Non® Modesty Apron has been pioneered and designed by West Midlands Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon, Mr Mushtaque Ishaque.
Having observed the growth in litigious claims, Mr Ishaque recognised the need for a specially designed garment for patients to wear, allowing practitioners to carry out a full visual examination of the back and spine whilst covering the front torso and preserving patient modesty. An apron shape seemed a suitable starting point.
Introducing a split in the centre allowed access to the abdomen when the patient is lying on their back. This innovation, together with the overall design, allows for use in a wide cross section of medical examinations and investigations.
The final innovative step saw the adoption of an extendable crimped neckline, which means one size, fits all.
