Fully integrated textile production is the ideal prerequisite for manufacturing smart medical textiles. We have been manufacturing bandages and fabrics with different material constructions and properties for many years. In addition, we now develop specific textiles that can be combined with electronic components or supplemented with innovative yarns to create textiles that will transform the medical care of tomorrow. KOB set up its own team of experts at an early stage as well as developing initial client-specific smart solutions and becoming involved with international research projects.
Smart textiles such as these continuously measure results, act or react when required, and send and receive information wirelessly.
- monitor wounds,
- generate heat,
- control compression pressure and
- monitor heart and respiratory rates.
There is no question that in future these textiles will take their place in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases. Will you be joining us?
