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 support means that our partners' products are designed to provide the necessary compression and support exactly where needed. By controlling compression on the scar tissue, the healing process advances faster and patient comfort is heightened. The compression zones are specially designed into each product based on indication.
For optimum healing, the surgery site needs rest. That is why products from Tytex and our partners 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 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 ensures perfect fit at all times.

GLOBAL PROCUREMENT CAPABILITIES
Patient pathways - continuously optimising design for specific garments
In-depth knowledge about user experience, about each specific surgical procedure as well as the post-surgical recovery period is key when designing and manufacturing high performance medical garments and textiles. Our way of approaching this area is a sophisticated set of so-called patient pathways developed by Tytex.
Understanding the user
These pathways make us able to understand the users reality, the surgical approaches of the surgeons as well as all the various stages of the recovery phase, making it more evident what kind of requirements and needs a surgeon and a patient may have for a post surgical garment and textile. These pathways makes it possible for us to ensure that we always manufacture our garments from a user experience as well as a clinical perspective, furthermore enabling us to develop very accurately according to indication for use.
We continuously refine and extend these pathways in order for them to optimally reflect reality from the clinical perspective. The pathways are designed to gauge all the stages that a patient undergoes during recovery be it after having undergone cancer treatment and surgery or post cosmetic breast surgery.

Understanding the customers reality and basing decisions and advice on the customer as well as in-depth professional knowledge
At Tytex we pride ourselves in our ability to asking the right questions to the customer and basing our advice and solutions on two things - customer input and professional knowledge.
Our customers usually have very clear ideas about the product they want to bring to market. They know they want a certain garment or textile for a particular clinical indication in a particular colour at a specific price point. My job is to translate these certainties into a space of opportunities. But our customers also appreciate being challenged. If we do X we can also achieve Y. We listen, we challenge and we come up with solutions and then we manufacture the solutions.
