There is a need for nurse scrub jackets that provide physical safety while being designed for comfort and performance. This study evaluates the optimal thermal comfort value of fabrics for nurse scrub jackets by comparing two fabric structures and four different fiber contents. A sweating guarded hot-plate test was used to determine the best fabric for thermal comfort. The result of this study indicated that a knitted structure provided greater thermal comfort than a woven structure. In addition, cotton and polyester fiber contents were superior to rayon at retaining heat within fabrics. This result could provide the basis for producing optimal fabric structures and choosing the best possible fiber contents for future nurse scrub jackets.
