biomedical textiles, specializing in braided and
nonwoven components for medical devices.
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 rely on biomedical textile technology to create braided polymeric cables and fabric structures to be incorporated into orthopedic medical device designs. Polymeric braided components provide strength, flexibility and preserve a 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 a low cross-sectional profile by using high strength polymeric fibers. Predictive stretch and recovery may be achieved by selecting optimal raw materials and braiding techniques.
