How do you assess the entire range of biocompatible materials available for use in your medical device component – function, purpose, cost, availability? Is it a complex array of several of these variables? What happens when  the choice on the drawing board doesn’t happen to readily exist?

No Need To Compromise Your Design

For example, your need is to design a product with certain clinical function and performance characteristics in vivo best served by a solid structure, but the limitation is how to deliver it via minimally invasive surgical procedures which would require the properties of an elastomeric material.

Textiles can bridge the gap between completely rigid and elastomeric materials.

Understanding the purpose of the component will drive the choice of fiber and orientation of the textile structure. Call us and we can help you assess the myriad materials choices available for your particular application.
