Fabrics with a feeling of well-being for the body
Mar '11
Christian Eschler AG has earned an excellent reputation in recent years as the manufacturer of highly functional knits for clothing in the health sector. The Swiss company profits from its know-how in the active sports sector, gained over decades spent developing fabrics. This valuable experience now benefits the personnel in the operating theatre and in the nursing sector.

The “e3 Peach H2” quality has been used successfully for underwear for the operating theatre for many years now. This knit of 100% micro-polyester is permanently anti-bacterial and has a velvet-soft texture. The outer side of the fabric is water-repellent (hydrophobic), whereas the inner side is water-absorbent (hydrophilic).

This special treatment, which Eschler calls “H2” (for hydrophilic/hydrophobic), means that the surgeon can rely on feeling comfortable despite the air-impermeable operating theatre coat. Moisture is transported efficiently from the inner-side to the outer-side, thanks to the absorbent inner-side – thus the surgeon is not “drowned” in his own perspiration. Since a thin film of perspiration always remains on the skin, the body does not need to continually produce more perspiration – the body is cooled optimally and the underwear actively supports thermoregulation.

The moisture which was transported to the outer-side remains between the operating theatre coat and the underwear since the water-repellent finish prevents a “back-flow” of moisture to the skin. The surgeon remains dry and thus enjoys a feeling of well-being.

Anti-statistic qualities are important for operating theatre clothing. The Swiss knits professional can fulfil this requirement in three ways. The circular knit “e1 Piqué Negastat”, which fulfils EN-Norm 1149/5, covers the polo shirts sector.

“e1 Supermicro Negastat”, a chain knitwear, is recommended for tunic coats and trousers, as this quality was fully tested and homogenized for the operating theatre, according to EN-Norm 13795 “Clean Air Suits”. The “e2 Cloque Rhombe Negastat” quality caters for the production of isolating jackets and coats. The latter quality is also used for anti-static blankets in the operating theatre and in the wake-up zone.

The quality “e1 Polyester Plain” is predestined for clothing in the nursing sector, being hydrophilic chain knitwear of 100% polyester. The clever combination of polyester filament thread on the outer-side and a special thread on the inner-side gives the fabric the feel of cotton, excellent moisture transportation properties and makes it very wearable. This knitwear is therefore especially ideal for the manufacture of tunic jackets and trousers.

“e1 Piqué Bioactive”, a hydrophilic circular knit of 100% polyester, is highly suitable for piqué polo shirts. It is permanently antibacterial and was awarded the mark 1.0, thus “very good”, by “Prüfinstitut Hohenstein” for its wearable properties.

Whether for clothing in the operating theatre or in the nursing sector – all the Eschler fabrics stand out due to their high respiratory qualities and excellent moisture transportation properties. These features guarantee the body a unique feeling of well-being while working. The elastic knitwear assures maximum freedom of movement and thus improved ergonomic wearable qualities.

The fabric is very robust thanks to the use of synthetic fibres and offers a high level of durability. The clothing dries extremely fast, whereby the laundry can save energy. A long life span and energy-saving – two further important aspects which prove convincing in the cost-conscious health sector!
