Medical clothing: beneficial applications for health and well-being
published in Issue 55, July 2016
Health care authorities around the world face the dual challenge of preventing illnesses and finding new ways of treating them in a cost effective manner. Medical protective clothing plays a crucial part in infection prevention and control, particularly for health care workers who are especially vulnerable to the threats of infection. However, the development of such clothing which is inexpensive, protective and comfortable to wear is considered to be a significant challenge and this, in turn, is driving innovations in textile technology. On the other hand, there is demand for higher levels of patient care and many people are looking for more convenient ways of managing their health. As such, several companies have used the latest advances in wearable technology to develop garments which can monitor the health of the wearer. Indeed, the use of such products is becoming increasingly widespread, and many experts believe that wearable technology could radically change the way health care is delivered. This report provides a wealth of information on various types of medical protective clothing, its properties, and its role in infection prevention and control. Also, the report analyses the latest developments in medical protective clothing, and in clothing and accessories for monitoring health and well-being. Furthermore, the report identifies key market trends and presents an outlook for the future.
