Get ready for dental uniforms and dental scrub styles that change colour and shape, and even respond to your body temperature.

According to Juniper Research we will be spending $ 59BN on smart wearables by the year 2019. Let's face it, currently the Apple watch isn't really setting the bar very high in terms of 'fashion' and the rest of the smart wearable technology that is currently on sale is really only for geeks or fitness fanatics. So how will smart wearables influence the type of dental uniforms you will be buying in the future? 

1. Dental Uniforms that change colour

Yes, this sounds pretty cool to us too! Imagine waking up in the morning and being able to change the colour of your dental scrubs via an app. Well companies such as The Unseen, a London-based science and design firm, are currently working on this type of technology.

2. Dental Uniforms that communicate

What? Yes this one sounds a bit weird but its coming down the tracks. This year Google launched its first saleable item under Project Jacquard with Levi's. The project will focus on weaving conductive yarn into Levi's jeans. The idea behind this piece of technology is that when you touch the jeans the fabric will become interactive, freeing us from having to use mobiles phones to Hailo a taxi, turn on the washing machine or using the phone to call a patient from your dental office.

 3. Dental uniforms that charge devices

You know what it is like. Rushing around all day looking after your patients, coming home from your dental practice, feeding the kids, cleaning the house, going to bed. For most of us it is the same routine everyday. How annoying is it though when you forget to charge your mobile phone? VERY! Well in the not so distance future you will be able to charge your mobile phone, whilst wearing your dental uniforms, dental scrubs or dental jackets.

4. Dental uniforms with body temperature controls

Every dental surgery has the usual 'office arguments' about air conditioning being too cold or the heating being too hot. The dental uniform industry has been at the forefront of producing medical uniforms made from superior fabrics for quite some time. However, the dental scrubs industry is about to get more help from technology sector. Soon you will be able to purchase dental uniforms with body temperature controls that could be hooked up to the thermostat in your dental practice! Cool or what? You will be able to change the temperature of your medical uniforms keeping you as cool or as hot as you would like.

5. Dental uniforms that change shape

You know the walk out the door heading to your dental practice and the weather is super, sun is splitting the trees. You then pop out at lunch time and it is bucketing rain. Well imagine if you could adjust the sleeve length of your dental scrubs for adverse weather conditions. This is exactly what Lacoste are predicting in the future. 

When we look back at our dental uniforms and dental scrubs from 2016 we will be amazed at how archaic and unhelpful they really were. I for one am looking forward to the dental uniforms of the future! Automatic Backlinks
