The TARUO Level 1 Gown is among the best in the industry. Most other gowns barely qualify as Level 1 and use fabric with a mere 20 – 25 gsm (grams per square meter). TARUO uses a fabric of 40 gsm while offering the best breathability possible. In addition, every pack of TARUO gowns can be checked for authenticity and tracked back to its origin point. Protect yourself and the ones around you by choosing quality and reliability. At Med Shield Group, we got you covered. Literally.

The official definition of the usage of different levels of gowns are given by the FDA:
- Level 1: Minimal risk, to be used, for example, during basic care, standard isolation, a cover gown for visitors, or in a standard medical unit
- Level 2: Low risk, to be used, for example, during the blood draw, suturing, in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), or a pathology lab
- Level 3: Moderate risk, to be used, for example, during the arterial blood draw, inserting an intravenous (IV) line, in the Emergency Room, or for trauma cases
- Level 4: High risk, to be used, for example, during long, fluid intense procedures, surgery, when pathogen resistance is needed or infectious diseases are suspected (non-airborne)
Polypropylene (PP) is the most commonly used material in making the spun-bonded non-woven fabric (Spunbond).
Depending on how dense the PP material is, the final spunbond will have different physical performance, the fluid resistance performance increase with the PP density. A direct way to measure dense is the weight per square meter, known as gsm. The most used levels are 25 gsm, 40 gsm, and 65 gsm.
Med Shield Group uses 40 gsm+ PE coated PP material to produce Level 1-3 gowns, which provides solid protection capability while balancing the cost at the same time.
