Research and Entrepreneurship Opportunities in 3D Fabric Healthcare Products
University of Borås, Swedish School of Textiles.
2010 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The barriers for entering the medical textiles market are rather strong as it is highly technically specialised and dominated by long established players. An approach for entering this market could be to consider the newly evolving 3D-weaving and uniaxial noobing processes as they produce entirely new 3D fabric structures compared with traditional 2D structures. They thus present completely fresh research and business opportunities for developing and marketing innovative 3D fabric based healthcare products.
