The materials blend copper with natural organic fabrics like cotton, bamboo, and linen, all designed with an eye on style, comfort, and fit. Swiss Precision has found its unique niche by creating an innovative product that elevates, refreshes, and disrupts the ages-old medical scrub and uniform industry, the company said in a press release.
Hospitals are increasingly seeing strains of antibiotic-resistant germs and deadly bacteria and viruses, which traditional medical scrubs can carry. New research has found that copper can help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses linked to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). Testing from the prestigious SGS Labs showed that copper is antimicrobial, and using simulated fingertip contamination, exposure to copper destroyed the virus completely and irreversibly. Swiss Precision weaves this same virus-destroying copper into its fabrics, making them antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral.
Swiss Precision is currently in negotiations to become a vendor for 50,000 hospitals in the United States and anticipates that a majority of medical facilities will adopt its materials for the future of healthcare. It’s an exciting opportunity to protect healthcare workers, patients, and the planet.
“We’re on a mission to bring HealthTech fashion protective materials to those that need protection in the workplace, may it be hospitals, ambulatory surgical centres, end-stage renal disease facilities, long-term care facilities, dental offices, clinics, delivery personnel, schools, airports, and any other business where uniforms are worn. We’re excited to give investors the opportunity to partner with us in protecting our customers while helping our planet,” Leslie Dotson, co-founder and CEO of Swiss Precision, said.
