Key questions to consider
When using textiles on the human body there are a myriad of aspects to consider. How will the skin react to the textile which is applied? Which part of the body is the textile applied to? Are there any special aspects which needs extra consideration when using a textile solution at special areas of the human body?
And what about the device you want to fixate — does it need to be shielded against moisture? Does the device have unique dimensions which needs to be taken into consideration? What about the weight — will the weight cause challenges when designing the textile?
These questions and many more need to be asked and answered when designing the optimal solution for your device. At Tytex we know which questions to ask and we have the capabilities, experience and people needed to answer these question. We also have the technology available to address any challenges encountered when designing any kind of textile solution.
Technology perfectly fitted to develop for any solutions applied to body and limbs
All the solutions we have made for our partners are made of a comfortable and skin-friendly material which allows the skin to breathe as well as reduce the impact of sweating. We are able to make textile solutions to any part of the body — be it the smallest limb or around the torso of a large man. The technologies we apply allows us to make garments which incorporate 4-way stretch capabilities. This makes us able to manufacture solutions that gives flexibility when applied on joints or on skin surrounding ligaments. The solutions also offers adaptability when applied to parts of the body where the respiratory system is a key factor to consider.
Another key factor when designing textile solutions intended to be integrated with wearable technologies is the ability to manufacture seamless end products.
The device which is to be worn on the body needs in some way to be cinched, sealed or fastened within the textile solution. This can — with traditional textile technologies — result in seams. Seams can result in discomfort for the user. With seamless technology all the negative aspects of seams are completely avoided. Moreover, the technologies we employ allow us to manufacture textiles which have the so-called fact-based sizing incorporated. Based on statistical insights and modeling combined with deep textile property insights and an intricate production set up we are able to manufacture solutions which fit and feels comfortable with the lowest possible amount of SKU's.

GLOBAL PROCUREMENT CAPABILITIES
What I most enjoy when making garment and textile solutions for our partners is the creative aspect
When we start working on a new solution for our partners it is very liberating to listen to all the great ideas and thoughts that the customer has put into the new solution. Transforming all these ideas into a viable and tangible solution for the benefit of both the customer but also the end user is a very enjoyable undertaking for me.
The use situations, the medical indication, price point as well as market idiosyncrasies all have to be taken into consideration when starting to create a solution. After having a clear picture of these variables me and the rest of the team start considering the optimal mix of technology, materials, accessories and special treatments. Being able to come up with the right solution based on all the pieces of the puzzle is just a great pleasure for me.
