The really unique features of our garments

four way stretch; 4-way stretch; medical


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

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.

We manage the processes

We want you to get the full advantage of our complete R&D setup. And when you partner with Tytex, every step from idea to implementation is closely followed and documented through our development process. By taking you through this process, we help you get the product right the first time and within agreed time, saving you time and resources. Through our project management we ensure ongoing overview and control of the processes.


Fast speed to market

Our set-up allows us to fast-pace development, of prototypes of any type of medical garment. All products are tested at Tytex’s own facilities or at independent external laboratories. We have engineering capabilities and R&D facilities close to production to ensure efficient transfer from R&D to manufacturing. This results in a strategic advantage with shorter time-to-market.

Our R&D department is highly experienced in both Tytex brand and private label healthcare garment development and manufacturing. Having our own brands is an advantage to you as well; we know all the routines and challenges that can arise in product development. This means we can help you plan more efficiently, and we know the value chain of a branded product by heart.

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.

Continuous optimisation

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.
