My idea is simple:  the current suits are scary and intimidating and do not all look the same; these should be made to look alike, have a gentler color (like UN blue), and should contain a simple icon that says "We're here to help with Ebola".   Red

Indeed Les, that's an added benefit that I didn't yet articulate, so thanks for pointing that out as an additional biocontainment implication. Probably a color more like yellow in the inside as in an above comment would have the same effect to monitor (gosh, I hope not!) breaches.

Thanks for posting the guide . Indeed, I love the color of color-coding the inside of the suit a different color so as to give an additional visual cue to help trigger a tired/stressed person to handle the inside and outside differently. Possibly something arresting like orange or pink?

Thanks Jamie and Meena. I'm thinking more along the lines of uniformity since as far as I know gentle colors like pale blue are universally calming, which is an outward visual goal. I'll work on sketching and will reach out to some design friends.
