There’s a worldwide pressure on healthcare. Providers are therefore looking for ways to combat illnesses and diseases in a more cost-effective way. As a result, some services and treatments are no longer bound to dedicated sites such as hospitals, and have been made available to patients in their homes and even while they’re on the road.
These changes have spurred the development of technologies that enable patients to monitor and manage their health and well-being themselves. Here, we see an important role for innovative para-medical garments and appliances. They empower patients to take control of their health and reduce their reliance on costly or heavily burdened health care systems. As these smart technologies are integrated in daily wear, they should be combined with comfort, flexibility and softness.
What’s in it for me?
The combination of medical clothing and appliances with technology is on the rise. Stockings, shirts, gloves and belts are being equipped with high-tech solutions and supporting features. So-called “smart” clothing is used for a number of medical applications that prevent diseases, improve the wearer’s sense of well-being and reduce pain and discomfort. At the same time, the patient demands for wearable and comfortable garments. Here lies an important task for textile professionals like you. You can add create high quality para-medical appliances by combining medical features with patient needs. Your textiles need to be long-lasting, often washable and still look fashionable. With special coatings you help to prevent stains, while scent coatings neutralise smells that come with certain medical conditions. Comfortable flexibility, good breathability and extreme softness help you achieve an optimal balance between medical application and wear comfort.
We offer various coatings and finishes that improve para-medical appliances. We add extra functions to your fabrics and make them feel soft and comfortable. Our dyeing auxiliaries make sure your textiles keep their deep colour shades after multiple washes. We even take innovation one step further by developing finishes that improve stability and balance. With these features, you can give an extra boost to these beneficial applications for health and well-being.
