Qualities Of An Operating Room Clog
One of the biggest issues that staff in an operating room face is a lack of foot support. This may sound trivial but the footwear must offer support to ensure the team member is comfortable and not distracted throughout the operation. In many cases, the staff will barely move their feet while operating and, even the simplest of procedures, can become protracted. They may be stood on their feet for hours focused on the surgery.
Alongside this, there is a real risk of spills in the operating room. The shoes need to protect their feet from spills and possible contamination. They also need to have excellent grip to ensure the operating team doesn’t slip, this can make a deadly difference.
Because spills are commonplace and hygiene is exceptionally important, it is also vital that the operating room shoe can be washed and sterilized to be used again. It is not a good use of resources to keep throwing shoes away.
Don’t forget that operating rooms can be stressful and hot. That’s why the best-operating shoes need to be ventilated, ensuring their feet are warm, dry, and protected.
It’s a lot to ask of a shoe but fortunately, Reposa has dedicated itself to creating the perfect operating room shoe. In fact, they have several that can be used in the operating room.
