BARRIER Surgical Gown Ultimate

BARRIER Ultimate - For the ultimate performance in protection and comfort

BARRIER® Ultimate caters to the optimal combination of protection and comfort requirements as the material is very soft and breathable, yet highly fluid repellent. BARRIER Ultimate is adapted for the most challenging surgical procedures.

Highly soft and noiseless material

Maximum breathability for ultimate comfort

Highly fluid repellent for advanced protection

Ergonomic fit, for greater freedom of movement

Available in standard and high performance gowns

Natural working position

BARRIER Ultimate has shoulder pleats allowing freedom of movement for the upper body, while the forward-facing sleeves correlate with a natural working position. The long sleeves enhance mobility as well as reduce the risk of glove-sliding.

The Operating Theatre Journal notes Mölnlycke Health Care’s BARRIER Surgical Gown Ultimate offers improved protection and comfort.
