Inspired by an initiative in Spain, the five partners Philips, ASML, VDL, Jumbo and High Tech Campus Eindhoven have decided to donate the suddenly obsolete PSV shirts to the four major hospitals in the Brainport region (Maxima Medical Center, St. Anna Hospital, Catharina Hospital Eindhoven, Helmond Elkerliek Hospital).
From PSV shirt to hospital gown
With some small adjustments, the shirts are very suitable for the children's wards and during (minor) interventions, which is useful at this time when regular care in hospitals is restarting. In the sewing workshop of the local shop Wildenberg Ynformal, the football shirts have been adapted to serve as a hospital gown by opening the back and adding cords. The shirts can be cleaned and therefore reused by the hospitals.
