Who Are We?
For over 15 years, we have been at the forefront of apparel technology, design & manufacturing for elite performance brands around the globe. We believe that medical professionals deserve the same breathability, fit, function, mobility, and attention to performance quality as high performing athletes do. We also know that, just like professional athletes, frontline workers need a product that provides effective and functional protection that eliminates any friction between them and a job well done.
La Forma Medical launched our reusable gown program in partnership with Inova Health Systems. Since then, we have expanded our catalog to include a wide range of reusable products in the healthcare industry. We have developed our high-performance medical garments by working with this renowned hospital system, using focus groups with direct input from esteemed doctors, surgeons and nurses on the front line.
At La Forma Medical we are focused on helping healthcare become sustainable, and shrink their carbon footprint, by aiding the transition from disposable to reusable products. Our reusable garments are built with local and recycled yarns using renewable energy powered operations.
La Forma Med builds unique, high-quality performance products with custom sizing, free art, team stores, and quick turn production in the Americas. By working with professional front line workers and athletes, we know the win is in the details and every last feature is important to your teams’ success and health.

Why Switch to Reusable?
Reusable gowns are both an environmentally friendly and cost effective option. Reusable gowns can reduce medical waste as much as 80 percent. Additionally, our manufacturing operations run on over 90 percent solar energy, a renewable resource that helps reduce our carbon footprint.
Do you know that hospitals in the United States alone use over 250 million disposable gowns a year? Disposable, single-use isolation gowns cost up to 50 percent more than the cost of a reusable isolation gown per use. Disposable, single-use surgical gowns cost up to 85 percent more than the cost of a reusable surgical gown per use. Hospitals who are introducing reusable garment programs are seeing significant savings in their pocket and on the Earth.
Switching from a disposable to a reusable gown program can have the following impacts on your sustainability goals:
NATURAL RESOURCE ENERGY (NRE)
GLOBAL WARMING POTENTIAL (GWP)
The Covid19 pandemic highlighted the dangers of the disposable supply chain. With back-orders and stock deficiencies the front line was left with inadequate protection.
Supply Security: Be immune to any supply chain issue with a reusable gown program and your front line will always be protected. With reusable gowns you can extend your supply in a way that is not possible with disposable options.
Vertically Integrated Operation: La Forma is a vertically integrated operation protecting against supply chain issues. Locally sourced fabrics and Western Hemisphere operations provide a reliable quick turn and ship program. We offer weekly deliveries, instead of waiting for your order to be complete.
