Medical Clothing by Advance Design
When it comes to medical clothing supply, Advance Design has some of the best uniforms and medical clothing on the market.
The importance of having the right look when you work in the health industry cannot be understated. Patients form perceptions very quickly, and when medical workers are not dressed in the right style of uniform, it can add to patient anxiety, and may even lead to refusal of treatment.
Research (for example, Skorupski & Rea, 2006) suggests that medical clothing and uniforms have an important role to play in how patients perceive the professionalism and approachability of staff.
The direct implication of this is that selection of medical clothing from a medical clothing supply store is not a choice that should be undertaken lightly. Serious thought needs to be given to the image that the uniform will present.
Of course it is not only a matter of how patients respond to uniforms, but also how the staff themselves feel about wearing the uniform style. A uniform identifies the individual’s profession and place of work. The chosen style can have an impact on the morale of the staff member and can even affect the quality of their work.
Comfortable Medical Clothing is a Must
Uniforms should be chosen that make staff feel good about wearing them and that inspire patient confidence. Most patients, over 60% according to one study, are far more likely to respond well to a doctor who wears a white lab coat compared to one who simply wears a suit.
The lab coat has become an identifying symbol of the profession, and conveys multiple messages about the wearer. It is also a somewhat convenient symbol, because it provides protection for the wearer’s other clothes.
Surgical scrubs are the very popular alternative and can be acceptable in certain situations. This type of clothing is less formal, and is best suited to environments where scrubs are realistic attire for the setting.
For example, in a hospital or surgical clinic, or a place where surgical procedures are likely to take place, scrubs are a valid choice. More traditional uniform styles would be more appropriate in other types of health industry settings.
Scrubs are increasingly becoming as iconic in identifying medical personnel as traditional uniforms, in large part due to the influence of American television shows.
It must be remembered that the main point of distinctive medical clothing is to inspire trust in patients, and that effect is diminished if there is a perception of “style over substance” mentality.
Medical clothing from Advanced Design brings a modern look to traditional medical clothing styles, so you get the best in terms of presenting an image that is professional, modern, hygienic, and trustworthy.

The overall solution was what we were after. Kristi and Ray ‘got’ what we were trying to achieve. The online store is also very impressive. From the very first meeting, Kristi and Ray made everything so easy and I never felt like any request was an issue. The staff look amazing, which reflects in their work and customer service. Updating a uniform doesn’t have to be such a tedious experience. Working with the right suppliers can actually make this part of the job a more pleasant experience. The fitting service makes it all so much simpler and less room for error.
