Development Trend of Surgical Gown Materials

1.The development trend of surgical gown materials

The first surgical gown was used at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The medical surgical gowns and bed sheets used at first were designed to prevent wound infections and to protect patients and medical staffs.

In recent years, people have paid more and more attention to the understanding of blood-borne pathogens such as HIV and HBV, and paid more attention to the demand for effective block function of surgical gowns.


Surgical gown material generally use reusable and disposable materials, and reusable fabrics are woven by spinning fibers. Disposable surgical gown materials are usually non-woven fabrics.

Regardless of the type and material, surgical gowns play an important and indispensable role in the current market, and even the future development.

2. The origin of the color of surgical gown

The color of the surgical gowns worn by doctors in modern hospital operating rooms have been changed to green. The reason is that the optic nerve is easily irritated and fatigued when human eyes look at a color for a long time. In order to reduce fatigue, the optic nerve will induce a complementary color for self-regulation.

During the operation, the doctor's eyes always see bloody bloodstains and over a long time, you will see spots of "green bloodstains" when you occasionally turn your gaze to your partner's surgical gown, which can cause confusion and affect the results of the surgery. Using light green surgical gown material to make surgical gowns can eliminate the green illusion and ensure a smooth operation.

Nurses in obstetrics and pediatrics generally wear pink surgical gowns, because it is a soft color that symbolizes warmth and harmony. After a baby is born, seeing such a beautiful color at the first sight can help calm the baby’s emotions.

Children who are hospitalized in pediatrics are generally full of fear of white, and the visual effect that pink is much better, which can alleviate the fear of children in hospital.
