Mölnlycke Health Care launches new BARRIER surgical gown ULTIMATE

March 13 2011

Mölnlycke Health Care, one of the world’s leading providers of single-use surgical products, today announced the launch of a new BARRIER® surgical gown made from soft SMS material for advanced protection.

The new gown, ULTIMATE, combines both high protection and high comfort, meaning that the surgical team no longer has to compromise between being safe and being comfortable when choosing a gown. The gown is made from a soft yet highly repellent material with an ergonomic design for freedom of movement.  This allows the hospital team to efficiently carry out demanding surgical procedures, safe in the knowledge that their surgical gown is equal to the job in hand.

The new surgical gown forms part of the complete Mölnlycke Health Care BARRIER gown range, which includes a selection of models in different materials to provide various protection and comfort combinations, to meet the diverse demands of different surgical procedures. This range enables operating teams to select the best gown for each surgical procedure whilst providing hospitals with a cost-effective and convenient solution.

The soft SMS material is superior to other standard gown materials, and provides an increased barrier that is highly repellent, strong and durable while also being breathable – all without compromising on its protective capabilities.  According to customer preference studies, 92% of test users prefer BARRIER surgical gown ULTIMATE to the current surgical gown they use.

  "With the surgical gown ULTIMATE, we have taken the best from our current range of BARRIER gowns and combined it with the soft SMS material to improve the protection and comfort,” said Lisa Reck, Category Director, Surgical Division, Mölnlycke Health Care.  “We strive to deliver quality products that meet the diverse needs of surgical teams whilst ensuring cost-efficiency for hospitals.”

Each BARRIER surgical gown is developed by Mölnlycke Health Care using the highest quality materials to ensure both patient safety and the maximum protection and comfort for healthcare professionals, as well as complying with the required health standards. In addition to the innovative and purpose-designed products that Mölnlycke Health Care’s BARRIER range offers, there are obvious delivery and logistical advantages to selecting one complete range, thus creating savings in time, effort and cost for hospital teams.
