Swiss Precision Active Eco HealthTech Fabric

Swiss Precision Active Eco HealthTech Fabric

Today, one of the biggest problems in the clothing industry globally is that 96 to 98% of the materials are made from toxic chemicals and petroleum-based fibers, which are bad for users and the planet. These materials are not very eco-friendly. 

The textile manufacturing process accounts for approximately 20% of industrial pollution. Over 8,000 chemicals are utilized in the manufacturing of clothes from raw materials. People are exposed to toxic substances in direct touch, often without proper safety precautions, and are at risk of contracting fatal infections. 

The doctors, nurses, and paramedic staff members working in the hospitals or health care settings wearing medical scrubs made of such toxic materials are most exposed to vulnerable healthcare-associated infections. Such medical scrubs do not prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. Such medical scrubs do not protect our healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses from these healthcare-associated infections.

So, the world needed an eco-friendly fabric material that could also be effective against healthcare-associated infections (HAI). That is why Swiss Precision decided to step in and invented Eco HealthTech Fabric.     

This revolutionary fabric material contains 74% Cotton, 21% Copper polyester, and 4% Spandex. Swiss Precision uses this Eco HealthTech Fabric to make the world’s best medical scrubs. These are the world’s first medical scrubs patented with embedded copper fibers and mixed with other organic materials too.

Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric patented with embedded copper fibers has antimicrobial properties. These are the best medical scrubs for doctors, nurses, and other paramedic staff members that help to kill deadly healthcare-associated infections. These medical scrubs are also effective against SARS and MERS viruses. These are made up of eco-friendly materials, so can also help to reduce global industrial pollution.

So, the SGS report shows that Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric has a width-wise short period wicking time of 120 sec (2 min) and a width-wise long period wicking time of 600 sec (around 10 min).

3. Anti-Microbial Properties:

The SGS tested Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric for antimicrobial properties using Staphylococcus Aureus and Klebsiella Pneumonia cultures. These bacteria are mainly responsible for many healthcare-associated infections (HAI).

  • Staphylococcus Aureus:
  • On the test specimen as received:

The SGS report shows that the bacterial count reduced to below 100, which is around 99.99 % reduction in bacteria in 24 hrs.

  • After 10 & 40 Washes: 

The test result was the same after 10 washes and 40 washes (99.99 % reduction in bacterial count)

  • Klebsiella Pneumoniae: 
  • On the test specimen as received:

The bacterial count reduced to below 100, which is around 99.99 % reduction in bacteria in 24 hrs.

  • After 10 & 40 Washes:

The test result was the same after 10 washes and 40 washes (99.99 % reduction in bacterial count).

So, the SGS report results prove that Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric kills 99.99% of bacteria (Staphylococcus Aureus and Klebbseila Pneumonia) within 24 hrs of time. You will get same results after 10 or 40 washes. 

Advantages Of Using Medical Scrubs Made By Swiss Precision Eco Healthtech Fabric:

Swiss Precision designs medical scrubs which are made of our Eco HealthTech Fabric. This Eco HealthTech Fabric enriches our Swiss Precision medical scrubs with many advantages, which ordinary medical scrubs do not have. These advantages include the followings:

1. Have Antimicrobial Properties & Prevents Healthcare-Associated Infections:

            Swiss Precision Active Eco HealthTech Fabric

As Medical Scrubs made by Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric is patented with a significant quantity of embedded copper fibers, they act as good antimicrobial materials. Copper’s antimicrobial activity is widely recognized. Copper was designated as the first antimicrobial metal by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) in 2008. 

Within two hours of contact, solid copper surfaces may destroy 99.9% of bacteria. Bacteria are quickly destroyed on copper surfaces, and copper ions produced from the surface are thought to play a significant part in this activity.

Doctors, nurses, and other medical staff members are highly vulnerable to healthcare-associated infections (HIA), mostly due to Staphylococcus Aureus and Klebbseila Pneumonia.

Staphylococcus Aureus is the most common cause of skin and soft tissue infections such as boils, furuncles, and cellulitis. Although the majority of staph infections are mild, S. aureus can cause severe infections such as bacteremia, pneumonia, or bone and joint diseases.

Klebsiella Pneumonia can cause many healthcare-associated infections. These include lung, bloodstream, wound or surgical site infections, pneumonia, and meningitis. 

            Swiss Precision Active Eco HealthTech Fabric

Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric has around 21% copper. According to the SGS report results, Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric kills 99.99% of bacteria (Staphylococcus Aureus and Klebbseila Pneumonia) within 24 hours of time. You will get the same antimicrobial results with our Swiss Precision Medical Scrubs after 10 washes or even after 40 washes. 

So medical scrubs made of Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric can protect you from many healthcare-associated infections. 

2. Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric Is Eco-friendly:

Some people believe it is more convenient to dump clothes once destroyed by washing. It’s not to worry about why many medical scrubs on the mass market have such a low price on the label.

However, it takes significant sacrifice from both the environment and the people. Yes, you pay much more for this comfort than you realize, and it is not even comfortable. It causes an increase in environmental pollution from the clothing industry and is very bad for our planet. No piece of clothes is worth risking our planet’s or someone’s health. We must significantly change the clothing manufacturing process and must end fast fashion.

That is why we designed Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric to be eco-friendly. Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric creates little environmental pollution as compared to other fabric materials used globally. So, medical scrubs made of Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric are good for our ecosystem and the planet.

3. Thermal Regulatory Properties:

As Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric is patented with embedded copper fibers, it has thermal regulating characteristics, which gradually heat hands, wrists, and fingers, increasing blood circulation and relieving arthritic symptoms such as joint pain.

According to the SGS report results, our Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric contains 21% copper, so our medical scrubs can provide these benefits too.

4. Soft and Smooth:

Medical scrubs made of Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric are very smooth and soft, lightweight and durable. With moisture wicking, Swiss Precision medical scrubs are odor resistant too. So Swiss Precision medical scrubs are very comfortable and have good reliability.

5. More Benefits While Paying Less:

Swiss Precision Eco HealthTech Fabric clothes allow you to enjoy more benefits while paying less. In the long run, our eco-friendly medical scrubs are inexpensive. If you wear a medical scrub for three years instead of one, which is unusual with mass-market products, you should get a high-quality medical scrub that can last for more time. So, it is far less expensive to get a high-quality piece from an eco-friendly manufacturer like Swiss Precision.

Swiss Precision has a goal to deliver these eco-friendly & the best antimicrobial medical scrubs to more and more doctors, nurses, and paramedic staff members. Therefore, Swiss Precision has partnered with StartEngine to bring more investments to this project. So if you care about our healthcare workers who sacrifice their lives for us & you care for our ecosystem and planet, you should consider investing in this amazing project.
