Researchers achieve breakthrough in medical textiles

Oct '09
Textile researchers from North Korea have achieved a major breakthrough, by developing new kinds of products for use in medical applications like an artificial cross-type knee joint ligament, knitted insulator and pressure bandage.

The artificial blood vessel made from fibres, is used to replace the blood vessel damaged by blood vessel diseases such as atherosclerosis. It has features of flexibility and three-dimensional posterity, which creates good conditions for the development of vessels leading to the heart.

The artificial cross-typed knee joint ligament, strong in intensity, promotes cell proliferation and shortens treatment and recovery time. The knitted insulator for prosopalgia treatment is excellent in all indices of prosopalgia treatment and has a high remedial value.

The goods have neither toxicity nor side-effects and never decay in the body. In the recent years they have proved efficacious in the treatment. There is one more development in progress which is connected to the cerebral nervous system. The research is being undertaken by the Textile Research Institute of the State Academy of Sciences.
