MVO Sustainable and supportive garments for nurses

Last year was involved in the wonderful development and co-creation process between 4 ambitious care/cure institutes, two work wear producers and some experts. Here pictures of the results during a conference for the health sector in Rotterdam, December 4. 2014. See the posture sensor, the gas sensor, the supportive under layer, the futuristic pattern design and the comfortable materials. What you don’t see: the materials are as sustainable as possible, so also better for our world. More info here >> (in Dutch). And RTL Boulevard (minute 13:58)
