As experts in the development of medical garments and textiles, we have the ability to manipulate a wide range of parameters and cutting-edge technologies.
Our reputation for excellence in this field is why our partners choose to work with us. We understand that the medical industry is highly regulated, competitive and demanding, which is why we take the time to listen to our partners, to understand their needs, and to create high-performance garments and textiles that give them a sustainable competitive advantage in their space.
At Tytex, we offer garment and textile solutions that are completely tailored to our customers' unique product portfolios. To achieve this, we utilize our extensive knowledge and experience in garment and textile development and manufacturing, combined with our expertise in the medical industry.
When designing a specific garment, we carefully consider a variety of factors such as the need for compression, support, fixation, moisture absorption, elasticity, and the clinical indication for the garment. We also evaluate the price point, raw materials, special treatments, and manufacturing technologies required to meet the needs of our partners and their end-users.
We believe that these considerations are crucial for producing garments and textiles that are customized to meet the specific realities of our partners and their customers. Please read on to learn more about our processes and technologies.
LET US TALK ABOUT YOUR NEEDS
THE REALLY UNIQUE
FEATURES OF OUR GARMENTS
The textile will adapt to the body shape at all times ensuring that the product will provide the necessary compression needed for recovery, as well as the best possible comfort at all times during prolonged wear.
Targeted compression and fixation means that our products are designed to provide the necessary compression and fixation exactly where needed. By controlling compression on the wound area, the healing process advances faster and patient comfort is hightened. The compression zones are specially designed into each product based on indication.
For optimum healing, the surgery site needs rest. That is why our products are designed to guarantee no seams in the wound or scar area and at any other critical sites of the applied area. This provides maximum skin friendliness and prevents pressure marks, as well as irritation of skin and tissue.
When it comes to medical textiles and post-op garments, no size fits all. That is why we base all our sizes on three parametres; statistical body knowledge, comfort stretch measurements and extensive knowledge and experience with the combination of knitting methods in different materials. The combination of these 3 parameters defines our size defintion, ensuring perfect fit at all times.
Material Composition - Selecting the Right Materials for the Specific Garment
Choosing the right materials is critical when it comes to creating garments that are both comfortable and functional. The right combination of textile fibers can affect the overall look, feel, and performance of a garment, making it essential to select the appropriate materials for each specific garment.
At Continence Care by Tytex, we understand that every garment is unique, and selecting the right materials is essential. We offer a wide range of options when it comes to textile fibers, including both man-made and natural materials. We work closely with a variety of suppliers to ensure the best possible quality and supply chain stability, allowing us to create garments that are both functional and durable.
One of the most important factors to consider when selecting materials for a garment is their properties. Each type of material has unique properties that can affect the garment's performance, such as strength, flexibility, elasticity, softness, durability, heat insulation, water absorbency, dyeability, and resistance to chemicals, among others.
For example, polyester is a popular man-made fiber used in the production of garments due to its high strength and low water absorption properties. It is also resistant to shrinkage and chemicals, making it an excellent choice for industrial garments like two-piece fixation pants used in hospitals. However, some people may find polyester uncomfortable directly on their skin due to its texture, so it may not be an appropriate choice for all garments.
In contrast, natural fibers like silk, wool, cotton, flax, and bamboo are popular choices for creating garments that are both comfortable and functional. These fibers are breathable, lightweight, and soft, making them ideal for use in garments like underwear and sleepwear. They are also hypoallergenic and naturally moisture-wicking, helping to keep the skin dry and comfortable.
When selecting materials for a garment, it is also essential to consider the garment's intended use. For example, a high-performance ostomy belt requires a combination of materials that offer both durability and strength, as well as elasticity. In this case, a mix of polyamide and elastane fibers may be the best choice.
At Continence Care by Tytex, we pride ourselves on our ability to create garments that are tailored to each customer's unique needs and requirements. Our team of experts has years of experience in selecting and combining the right materials to create garments that are both functional and comfortable. We also perform a thorough check of our suppliers before initiating a partnership to ensure due diligence, supply chain stability, and optimal quality levels.
In conclusion, choosing the right materials for a garment is essential to its overall look, feel, and performance. At Continence Care by Tytex, we offer a wide range of options when it comes to textile fibers, allowing us to create garments that are tailored to each customer's unique needs and requirements. Our team of experts is committed to providing the highest quality garments that are both functional and comfortable, ensuring that our customers can live their lives with confidence and dignity.
Benefits of Working with Various Materials
The benefits of working with a variety of materials are numerous. By using a mix of fibers, we can manipulate the price point of the end product while also building strength, moisture absorption, breathability, and comfort where needed. Our decision-making process is based on factors such as price point, use situation, medical indication, and market.
For example, polyester is a great choice for creating a cost-effective two-piece fixation pant for industrial use in hospitals. This material is strong, has low water absorption, and minimal shrinkage. However, some people may find it uncomfortable directly on their skin. In contrast, a high-performance ostomy belt could be made using a mix of polyamide and elastane. This combination offers both durability and strength, as well as incredible elasticity.
In conclusion, with Continence Care by Tytex, you can be confident that your garments will be made from the highest quality materials as well as tailored to your specific needs and requirements.
