The fabric used for medical curtains has a direct impact on their performance. Due to the large number of patients in hospitals, the air in the room can be stuffy and the curtains used must be highly ventilated and breathable to allow air to flow freely. For this reason, fabrics with small mesh-like holes are generally chosen.

The second thing to consider is the appearance of the medical curtains. A good medical environment is conducive to the treatment and rehabilitation of patients. Bright light colors visually give a sense of open space, making people happy and feel comfortable and at ease, so in terms of colour, avoid choosing dark colors that make people feel depressed. On the other hand, in addition to matching the style of ward decoration, medical curtains can also be selected in different ways according to the different situations of the users, such as choosing partition curtains printed with cartoon patterns for children, and warm shades can be chosen for elderly pregnant women.
