Being uncomfortable in the O.R. can be incredibly distracting. On the contrary, when you’re protected and comfortable in the O.R., you’re in control and are able to focus on what you’re doing.
To this effect, some kind of fabric, which would be soft to the touch, with advanced material technology that would provide effective barrier protection against liquid penetration, while keeping you cool, fresh and comfortable while you work, needed to be invented. DuPont™ Softesse® was the answer.
Innovative DuPont Medical Fabrics incorporated advances in technology and materials to provide increased protection and safety, while helping one stay cool, comfortable and more relaxed in the O.R., creating a workhorse fabric that doesn’t really even feel like one. Originally called DuPont™ Sontara®, it has been renamed Softesse® medical fabric - a name that better describes this comfortably soft fabric, ideal for gowns and drapes.
Medical Fabrics from DuPont give you the protection you need and the comfort you desire, having been considered an industry standard for medical gowns and drapes and meeting the everyday needs of O.R. personnel around the world, for over 30 years.
