Technology
response to external conditions could
be ideal for keeping medical professionals
comfortable during long shifts.
In another potential use case, smart
textiles could help identify biological
signs of extreme stress. Surgeons face
high rates of stress-induced burnout,
even when compared to other physicians.
Extreme, prolonged stress can
lead to maladaptive behaviors and ultimately
lead to negative or even fatal
health consequences. Smart textiles in
surgical attire could prompt an intervention
before it's too late.
Further innovation is ahead. In addition
to real-time monitoring capabilities,
future scrubs are likely to integrate
artificial intelligence, augmented reality,
and even robotic elements. Self-cleaning
fabrics, which use microwaves, carbon
nanotubes, photocatalyst coatings
and other advanced materials, also are
a focus of research and development.
The possibilities are vast, and the future
holds exciting prospects for further
enhancing team efficiency and patient
safety. ORM
