The Coverall is made from an absorbent material with a water-resistant backing, to protect the clothes and absorb liquid spills.
It has a lightweight water-resistant backing to help prevent the liquid soaking through. If possible, try to have the patient’s shirt collar outside the Coverall, as this will make it look like wearing a sleeveless pullover, making the patient look more dignified.
The Large Coverall looks more like wearing a jumper rather than wearing a conventional bib. It is easy to put on, and covers from shoulders to lap. It is held in place by Hook & Loop Tape fastening.
The small size is shorter and narrower than the large. Hence the larger size is more popular as it will cover the lap and catch any food spilled there.
Best absorption is achieved after three or four washes.
