Our surgical AAMI level 2 protection gowns are intended to be used for prolonged periods of time. That’s why we have paid special attention to the comfort and build of our surgical hospital gowns. Even in the case of non-invasive proceduresif the procedures where you will be using this protective gown are non-invasive, you still need to maintain freedom of movement.
Elastic knitted cuffs and durable seams will make sure that your surgical gown remains fully functional during your patient care.
Light to medium-weight surgical gowns are intended for small surgical interventions and hospital care. That includes caring for ICU patients, suturing, blood draws from a vein, or working in a pathology lab. These are all low-risk situations where our gowns can easily withstand some blood spatter and light soaking without contaminating the wearer.

SMS stands for Spunbond-Meltblown-Spunbond material. It’s a non-woven fabric that has high waterproof abilities. Also, SMS material is more lightweight than other material types, so gowns made from it can help reduce fatigue during long hospital shifts. Another benefit of SMS is its high capacity when it comes to preventing lint generation, making it fully hypoallergenic as well.

According to the FDA and CDC, all medical personnel should wear PPE (personal protection equipment) and gowns during the COVID-19 outbreak. If you are wearing your PPE properly, it is extremely unlikely that you will contract the disease.
It’s not a question of whether one gown is better than the other but which one is more suitable for certain patient care activities. AAMI level 1 covers non-invasive procedures and basic patient contact, while AAMI level 2 is a surgical gown for low-risk procedures.
A single lint from a gown can infect patients’ surgical incisions, so it’s standard for hospital gowns to be produced with low-linting materials. This is especially true when we are talking about surgical gowns that will be used in medical procedures.
Our gloves, gowns, masks, foot covers, and other PPE are made of durable and comfortable materials that will significantly minimise the risk of infection.
Our disposable nitrile gloves allow you to maintain a high level of dexterity while protecting your hands regardless of your profession or task.
