How to Use

When to Wear WHEN TO WEAR BARRYBASICS™ WITH SNAPS
  • Wear during hospital stays unless you really like hospital gowns
  • Wear at-home recuperating from surgery especially if you need help dressing.
  • Wear in bed and in public places because when you are recovering you simply may not feel like changing clothes several times a day. Chemo and radiation patient may have energy level dips and changing clothes is a major effort some days.
  • Wear to Rehab therapy facilities because some treatments may require easy access to the body.
  • Wear while experiencing temporary or permanent mobility issues. For instance, healing a broken arm or leg requires wearing a cast which makes wearing regular shirts and pants almost impossible.


When to Wear HOW TO WEAR BARRYBASICS™ WITH SNAPS
  • To wear, unsnap fasteners and slip across body and around IVs and other medical devices and snap to close.
  • To change BarryBasics™ unsnap and remove across the body, no need to pull overhead or pull down the body. The design makes it easier to maneuver around IVs, tubing and other medical devices. If worn during hospital stays, shirts/tops and pants offer easy access for care and treatment.
  • Boxers, shorts and pants with plastic snap fasteners that are worn during hospital stays, accommodate catheters and other medical devices, and allow easy access to lower body for care and treatment.
  • To wear during medical exams and care, the snap fasteners only expose the part of the body to be examined or treated, thereby, avoiding total body exposure and embarrassment.


USING NO-SNAP COORDINATING SHIRTS AND PANTS
  • Use no-snap shirts and pants during recovery and rehab therapy. If a patient has knee surgery, during at home rehab, the patient may prefer a no-snap t-shirt. If a patient has a broken arm or is recovering from shoulder surgery, the patient may prefer no-snap shorts or pants.
  • Use no-snap shirts and pants to transition to full recovery.
