Textiles needed for home monitoring device - any suggestions?

#1
Hi,

I work on medical and wearable tech products, and am having some challenges sourcing bio-compliant textile materials.


Does anyone have any suppliers they can share, or indications on where, or who might be doing this successfully?


All help would be really appreciated, I am based in the UK.

Do you mean biocompatible?...

Will those textiles contact more than intact skin? What's the cumulative contact duration?

There's really not that much to it. You need to consider the base substance(s) and any additive/colourants, both intended to stay in the textile, and used in the manufacturing processes. Then you can evaluate what the odds are of clearing it through biological evaluation (biocompatibility). A manufacturer that can't/won't share with you such info, or indicative biocompatibility test certificates, is not one you want to work with.

Cheers,
Ronen.
