Medical textiles

Protective clothing is fundamental in every operation room. Without it, specialists and surgeons would be exposed to chemicals and body fluids which may transfer infections or diseases. As a rule, protective medical wear is straightforward, functional and not intended to give much comfort. Let’s change that.

Hospital wear gets more personal every year. Even in the operation room, surgeons are allowed to wear coloured head covers and comfortable shoes of their choice. Their clothes should comply with certain requirements, though, as they should be waterproof and wash resistant due to the many washes they endure. This means surgeons don’t have much choice when it comes to workwear. A bit of a shame, as standard medical textiles don’t offer the functionalities they need in their daily activities.

What’s in it for me?

As a textile manufacturer, you can make surgeons and specialists feel more comfortable and even more confident while operating on a patient. By combining several coatings and finishes, you provide them with apparel that protects them against fluids and gives a high level of convenience at the same time. Ventilating features make sure that sweat and high body temperatures are released, while softeners give the fabric a fine touch. You can even add fragrances that disguise bad hospital smells, or aromas and minerals that boost the users’ energy level. All of this combined will make surgeons feel more relaxed and focused, which will most definitely optimise their performance.

We know the requirements for medical textiles and developed a range of products that make them better. Our durable cosmetic finishes provide your textiles with nice smells, cooling features and even skincare on the go. Our mineral technologies improve concentration and balance, so surgeons feel more comfortable during long surgeries. Additionally, you can use our digital printing concept to personalise your fabrics and add deep and long-lasting colour shades.
