Exploring New Factors Influencing the Apparel Business: Weather, Technology and Cross-funtional Team

Description

The purpose of this research is to analyze the medical uniform wearers' needs and to re-develop the medical uniform, with a focus on diversifying sizing for preferred fit and satisfaction, and also to enhance textile application/usage. If a medical team is outfitted in well-designed, functional uniforms, it suggests a well-run organization where patients can entrust their care to those professionals. Uniforms contribute to the perceived quality of care, and there is a direct correlation to the medical teams' abilities to inspire confidence and professionalism. Current medical uniforms have been developed based on the male figure. Due to this, there were significant needs overall for improving the design of the female medical uniforms. With consideration of manufacturing cost and fit satisfaction, the study suggests specific improvements should be made to female pants design and fit, along with the coat design and fit using new comfortable textiles for better performance of medical staff members.
