Matress and bed linen specialist, Bekaert Textiles, has launched high-tech textile products under the name Medi Tiss.

The new range of textiles, designed specifically for the care and hospital sectors, includes smart mattress covers that can alert nursing staff when a patient leaves his bed or dependent.

The Senso Tiss mattress covers won the 12C tech Innovation Award at Belgium's Expo 60+ fair.

Besides the healthcare sector, the mattress covers also have many applications in home automation.

Mattress covers have a moisturizing function, a three-dimensional knit structure to prevent bedsores, and Purotex technology to avert house dust mite (HDM) allergy and asthma.
