A specific solution for every indication
Implants are designed to replace natural bodily functions that have been lost and in doing so to restore balance to destroyed physiology.
Understanding the problems
To develop an optimal implant we need to ask ourselves a lot of questions.
For example: In which part of the body will it be implanted? What functions does it have to fulfil? What static and dynamic stresses act on the implant?
Relevant dynamometric measurements, discussions with surgeons and the expertise of our engineers provide the answers.
Together with medical experts our engineers can define the shape, functionality and profile of properties for the implant. They now know exactly what stabilities, elasticities and porosities are required, how handling can be improved for the surgeon and much more.
Finding individual solutions – avoiding the wrong path
There is no such thing as a single textile structure for all indications – no “allrounder” for all cases (no “one fits all”). As every indication makes different demands of a textile implant, every indication needs its individual solution
(a tailored approach).
DynaMesh®products are not woven or conventionally knitted but warp-knitted*.
This technology, unlike any other, makes it possible to make specific variations in the shape and structure of a textile implant, which means that we can construct features with different characteristics in different places within the structure. More accurate adaptation of implants to the relevant indication is impossible.
Warp-knitted fabrics are a type of knitted fabric. A warp knitting machine is used for industrial production of this kind of fabric (by stitch formation from thread systems).
