Traditionally, hospitals, surgeries and clinics use washable protective wear for their staff, patients and visitors. At Abena though, we believe in the value of disposable products. There are many benefits to using disposable clothing over washable products from cost savings to increased levels of hygiene.
At Abena, we pride ourselves on the high quality of our products. Our disposable products are perform as well as washable versions, providing effective protection from splashes and dirt that you may encounter. Our products are available in different sizes and thicknesses, so they can be tailored to suit the wearer’s needs.
Because disposable products are brand new every time they are worn, there is much less chance of them carrying any potential dirt or bacteria. Washable products must be stored together, before being transported to cleaning facilities before they can be washed, increasing the chances of possible contaminations. Disposable versions however, can simply be thrown away once used.
Buying disposable products can actually save you money in the long run. Although buying a small number of washable products may seem more economical, this is not the case.
Washing products takes time and costs money, effectively increasing the cost of a re-usable product over its lifetime. On the other hand, when you purchase a disposable product, you only have to pay once for its use.
At a recent trial at a clinic in Denmark over 87% of patients found that Abena disposable products were at least as good as re-usable alternatives. Using these disposable products will save the clinic an estimated £13,000 per year!
