Product description and innovation synopsis:
The Synergy Long-Sleeve Modesty Top is designed with the caregiver and AORN guidelines in mind. The top is made from a durable poly-rich blend that is comfortable, opaque, and quick drying. The knit sleeves and modesty neck panel consist of a polyester knit which retains the soft hand, while aiding in the reduction of squame and body hair dispersion.
What sets this product apart from others available in the industry?
The fitted knit sleeves used on the Synergy Long-Sleeve Modesty Top retain their shape, length, color, and comfort after repeated laundering.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
Tightly knit sleeves aid in reducing the dispersion of dead skin scales or squames into the OR and hospital air. Less skin exposure aids in reducing the skin-to-skin contact between patient and caregivers.
The new long-sleeve scrub top fulfills the AORN guidelines for surgical attire recommending the covering of arms. The top also features a little extra modesty coverage around the neck area.
