50 Disposable Blue Gowns Short-Sleeved
The short-sleeved gowns are of medium weight - slightly heavier and thicker than the long-sleeved ones.
Most patients and clients find the gowns very comfortable and affording them more privacy. The gowns are blue, long and wide. They help the clients feel protected and relaxed. They are one size, and wide enough, so can be comfortably used on top of the client's own clothes.
Each gown is individually packed in a plastic bag for hygiene.
One of the questions that we are often asked is:
Why do you promote fully disposable equipment for clients' colon hydrotherapy treatments? Surely a towel can be used instead of the robes!
The reason why we do this is because we strongly believe that with modern medicine, superbugs, HIV and AIDS, MRSA and so on it is mega-important to take steps to protect the patients from them as much as we can. These unwelcome guests can be transferred through touch, or by sharing personal hygiene items, such as towels, blankets and so on.
On the face of it, the robe adds around £1.00 to the cost of the treatment. However, if the therapist uses bath sheets instead, and changes them after every client (as one should) then, the original price of the sheet or towel, the washing powder, electricity, tumble-dryer, wear and tear on the washing equipment or commercial launderettes, - all these costs add up, and the price per use may even be higher.
Add to this the environmental price of disposal of chemicals into the water, water treatment and so on, and it becomes obvious that disposable robes are both an economical and ecologically less damaging way of complying with the requirements of client hygiene.
