Description

Medical Textile Materials provides the latest information on technical textiles and how they have found a wide range of medical applications, from wound dressings and sutures, to implants and tissue scaffolds. This book offers a systematic review of the manufacture, properties, and applications of these technical textiles.

After a brief introduction to the human body, the book gives an overview of medical textile products and the processes used to manufacture them. Subsequent chapters cover superabsorbent textiles, functional wound dressings, bandages, sutures, implants, and other important medical textile technologies. Biocompatibility testing and regulatory control are then addressed, and the book finishes with a review of research and development strategy for medical textile products.

Key Features

About the Editors

Yimin Qin Editor

Dr. Yimin Qin studied for his PhD in the University of Leeds between 1986-1990. After spending three years in Heriot-Watt University working on his postdoctoral project, he became the product development manager in Advanced Medical Solutions Plc in Cheshire, UK, where he led a team of scientists and developed a number of high performance wound dressings from alginate, chitosan and other natural polymers. He then went to study for an MBA in Manchester Business School and after graduation, took up the position of Fibers Product Manager in SSL International, working on advanced antimicrobial biomaterials. In 2002, Dr. Qin went back to China and taught at Jiaxing College, Zhejiang Province. In 2015, Dr. Qin was appointed as the director of State Key Laboratory of Bioactive Seaweed Substances at Qingdao Brightmoon Seaweed Group, where his main research interests focused on the extraction, modification and applications of alginate and other novel bioactive seaweed substances.
