Great idea Michael! My 87-year old father suffered a broken hip as a result of a fall last year and has unfortunately not recovered and is now bed/wheel chair bound. Following on from Kate's comment and Anne-Laure's link, can this device be used to accommodate other clothing (trousers)? My father fell outside the house, so a bathrobe would not have helped. I think a lot of elderly would benefit from this idea. Great work.
