Medtech / Medicine

Textiles are closely connected to the medical field and have opened up new possibilities in many areas. Textiles are found in almost all areas of medicine:

  • Textile implants
    Surgical nets (e.g. support of vascular biological implants and organs), stents (e.g. cardiovascular and tracheal implants), skin grafts (e.g. patches for replacement meninges), ligament and tendon implants.
  • Wound treatment
    Surgical sutures, dressings, elastic and inelastic bandages, impregnated dressings, casts, elastic mesh bandages.
  • Hygiene
    Towels, cleaning cloth, bed linen.
  • Operating theatre equipment
    Scrubs, operating cloth, covers.
  • Orthopaedics and rehabilitation
    Bandages, body supports, medical stockings.

The specific finishing process is determined by the textile’s intended application. All medical textiles are subject to the highest level of quality requirements, especially regarding the additives used during finishing. It is essential to completely remove all oils and additives used during processing. Thanks to state-of-the-art machines and advanced processes used for cleaning Lindenfarb’s medical textiles are of the highest quality.
