Abstract:- Medical textiles are one of the
most rapidly expanding sectors in the technical textile market, according to
reports, and hosiery products with medical industry applications are among a long
list of textile products being consumed in that market.
An important field of application
of textile in medicine has been developed such as wound care and preventing chronic wounds. Bandages and wound dressings are most commonly used because they are
affordable and reusable. The medical textile should have bio-compatibility,
flexibility and strength.

resulted into a new field called medical textiles. New areas of application for
medical textiles have been identified with the development of new fibers and
manufacturing technologies for yarns and fabrics. Development in the field of
