This Summer, Trade in Your Scrubs for Performance Enhanced Medical Uniforms

It’s officially summer! Whether you’re staying at your workplace, or traveling abroad to do relief work , you’re going to be sweating. Even when you’re in the air-conditioned operating rooms and halls of the hospital, high-pressure situations that so many medical professionals face on a daily basis will raise your body temperature enough for you to sweat even when it might feel cool in the room to everyone else.

Most clothes damp from sweat will hinder your performance. They’ll affect your body temperature even more, and they will stick to you uncomfortably – not to mention the awkward sweat stains that inevitably accompany it. That’s why you should consider trading your scrubs in this season for a new set of performance-enhanced scrubs that include technological features to keep you cool and dry!

What makes these scrubs special is that they are suitable for any climate, so you won’t need to buy a new set once the weather starts to cool down. The fabric used to make these scrubs is moisture wicking – keeping you cool when it’s hot – and soft and warm enough to keep you comfortable in fall and winter as well. These are truly the scrubs for all seasons!

Scrubs and Beyond

Medical professionals practically live in their scrubs and beyond doubt, deserve the best.  But what makes the best scrubs ? What is beyond shapeless unisex scrubs ? What is beyond low quality fabric and poor design ? Does it mean that the best scrubs are beyond an affordable price ? There’s a great article on Medelita site that answers these questions and talks about attributes of the best scrubs at minimum expectations:

  1. Comply with whatever color requirements have been established for the workplace.
  2. Conform to the body in a manner that is not inappropriately revealing, especially the neckline.
  3. Launder well enough that they don’t require ironing.
  4. Be sufficiently durable that the pockets don’t tear and the pant legs don’t fray for at least 3 months.
  5. Be comfortable against the skin and resist pilling or fading for at least 3 months.
The one question remains unanswered. With higher quality fabric and use of innovative technologies that make scrubs fade resistant, wrinkle resistant and stain resistant, costs are rising significantly. How much are YOU prepared to pay for the scrubs? Some of the highest
quality and higher priced scrubs are made by Medelita. At $42 for women’s scrub top  and $44 for men’s scrub top they seem to flying of the shelves fast, so maybe there is market for professional medical scrubs beyond $50 price point after all?
