We understand your challenges
Layered in surgical apparel, operating under bright lights, and under intense pressure – the demands of the OR can be physically and mentally exhausting. Distractions caused by discomfort are the last thing you need.
How VaporCool™ can help
VaporCool™ complements the functionality of your skin, assisting its natural process of thermal control. When you begin feeling hot and start to sweat, the fabric boosts evaporation, wicking moisture away to provide you with a cooling effect. When cool, the fabric holds in moisture and acts as an insulating layer.
Importance of temperature management
The body’s normal temperature is 37°C (99°F). Physical activity, heat and stress can increase your body temperature. As your body’s temperature increases, discomfort increases and cognitive performance decreases. In the operating room, where margins of error are razor thin, concentration must be sharp.
Ahlstrom Munksjö's VaporCool™ is the solution. Its dynamic cooling properties keep you 2-3oC cooler than a standard SMS scrub suit. It offers enhanced comfort, allowing you to focus on the surgery and your patient.
