Braided Biomedical Textiles Provide Orthopedic Solutions
New orthopedic devices and continuing advancements in minimally invasive surgical methods make it possible for athletes to get back on their feet faster than ever. Patients want to recover their full range of motion, maintain comfortable movement and accelerate their recovery time.
The rapid growth in new technology to repair damaged rotator cuffs, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissue repairs often utilize biomedical braiding technology to create cables and fabric structures that can be incorporated into orthopedic medical device designs that provide strength and preserve greater range of motion than possible with most all-metal prosthetics.
Areas that are particularly well suited for use of biomedical textile technology include:
- Shoulder, Elbow, Hand & Wrist
- Foot & Ankle
- Soft connective tissue applications
How Orthopedic Devices Benefit from Biomedical Textiles
Biomedical textile structures may be engineered to provide high strength, elasticity and supple flexibility with low cross-sectional profile. Predictive stretch and recovery may be achieved by selecting optimal raw materials for preferred fabric-forming techniques.
