Reverse engineering has been applied throughout the ages to various economic activities, especially in the industrial fields. Many countries have tended to reverse engineering to study the products of other countries. The pace of this industrial phenomenon escalated during the Second World War, and since the mid-nineties reverse engineering has approached the field of software and the scope of work in the field of reverse engineering has expanded on information, communication and computer technologies, as well as the fields of mechanical and chemical applications in all countries of the world. Reverse engineering is a technique concerned with discovering the technical principles of a machine or a system by analyzing its structure, function and method of work, and this process is often completed by analyzing a system (a mechanical machine, a computer program, an electronic piece, a product) into parts or trying to remanufacture a similar one that performs the same function Carried out by the original system. And with what the country is going through in terms of surprising and new circumstances (Corona pandemic - COVID19) that swept the whole world, and with what it imposed of different types of Protective clothes for the medical staff in Isolation hospitals, and due to the importance of patterns and their impact on the quality of the clothing product and its efficiency in terms of good control and Physical and psychological comfort, the current research aims to study Protective Isolation suit pattern for the medical staff to confront Corona pandemic, and to analyze the method of preparing it using the reverse engineering in an attempt to evaluate the pattern that has been prepared and set on the European body and others In order to fit the Egyptian body with its different sizes, in addition to trying to extracting the standardized scientific foundations to reach fully-controlling patterns for Protective Isolation suit. Methodology: This research followed the experimental approach for its suitability to achieve the objectives of the research and to verify the validity of its hypotheses. The current research used two evaluation scales to evaluate both (dimensions of samples "patterns", control and matching of the executed samples). Each of them included four axes (front, back, sleeve, and head cover "coupon"). The researcher executed (4) samples of Protective Isolation suit drawn according to the extracted pattern using the reverse engineering for the sizes (M, L, XL, XXL). The most important results include: There are no statistically significant differences between the average scores of the specialists for the executed pattern for Protective Isolation suit using the reverse engineering in terms of controlling and conformity of the basic samples on the sizes ((M, L, XL, XXL). There are no statistically significant differences between the average scores of the specialists for the executed samples for Protective Isolation suit using the reverse engineering in terms of controlling and conformity the basic samples on the sizes ((M, L, XL, XXL). Extracting the standardized scientific foundations to reach fully-controlling patterns for Protective Isolation suit to suit the different bodies of the medical staff. The researcher recommends: making use of the reverse engineering method in preparing many other clothing patterns, and trying to link the specialized colleges with the reality of society and its needs in different circumstances such as the Corona pandemic (COVID 19) to upgrade the Egyptian industry in its various fields to the level of international quality, study and analyze imported clothes to identify defects and the various advantages of them to make a local product suitability with the Egyptian bodies to increase competitiveness.
