Current medical attire worn in the hospital contributes to the spread of healthcare associated infections. In a 2011 study published by the American Journal for Infection Control, “Up to 60% of hospital staff’s uniforms are colonized with potentially pathogenic bacteria, including drug-resistant organisms.” Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21864762

Using a Silver Embedded Yarn made by our BioMaterials Partners, PurThread Technologies, and partnering with a high-end athletic fabric mill, we have developed the world’s first medical grade performance fabric effective against Staph & MRSA.

FIT Scrubs® are the only 100% Antimicrobial Athletic Medical Uniform on the Market. Their unique sportswear design and lifestyle brand makes them distinguishable amongst current competitors allowing recognition to both patient and health care practitioner, thus expediting the trust factor between patient and practitioner knowing they are wearing a uniform that provides dual protection.
