Drawing on years of textile experience represented in its own employee base and through collaborative efforts that involve fiber producers, weavers and finishers, the Brookwood Medical division provides a diversified product range, unmatched in the industry. Whether you are combating disease or saving lives, Brookwood Medical gives you fabrics that provide comfort.
Brookwood's line of innovative high tech coated and laminated fabrics for the medical industry includes:
Brookwood’s advanced coating and laminating technology includes fabrics with soft, low shear properties, excellent fluid resistance and moisture vapor barrier characteristics, which are suited for foam core mattresses. In addition, Brookwood produces a line of both monolithic and microporous coatings and laminations that demonstrate excellent moisture vapor transmission, which are perfectly suited as mattress cover fabrics for air powered, low air loss, continuous airflow and fluid therapy systems. This combination of softness, low shear, breathability and fluid resistance helps to significantly reduce friction and moisture build up, thereby helping to reduce injury to the skin.
Brookwood’s DERMA-PLUSH® two-way and four-way stretch fabrics are the latest in a line of innovative fabric developments. DERMA-PLUSH® fabrics are super soft, pliable, and stretchable fabrics with excellent recovery properties. This stretchable material should significantly reduce “hammocking”, thereby reducing the interface pressure between the mattress surface and the bony prominences of the patient. DERMA-PLUSH® is also available in an RF Weldable version.
