DSM and Meister: innovative medical textile constructions

News 14.11.2017
Innovative medical textile construction

DSM Biomedical, a global solutions provider in biomedical science and regenerative medicine, announced a novel braiding technology of DSM's medical grade UHMWPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) fibers, Dyneema Purity® fibers for use in the design and construction of medical devices. The new constructions of Dyneema Purity fiber are available by means of a patented platform technology entitled "IMPLANTABLE HOLDING DEVICE" developed by partner, Meister & Cie AG. This platform technology offers medical device manufacturers design freedom and possibilities for device miniaturization.

DSM's Dyneema Purity fibers offer medical device manufacturers freedom of design to meet specifications due to their high strength, low profile, and superior abrasion resistance. Pairing the unique properties of Dyneema Purity fiber with this new platform technology with Meister, better enables the interfacing of textiles to other medical device components, reducing the amount of metal required in the device, thereby resulting in less chance of metal debris and inflammation in a patient's body, leading to better patient outcomes.

"After an intensive period of development, Meister is pleased to introduce this new technology that will help medical device companies to develop novel devices and surgical procedures. Meister sees the potential of the innovation in sports medicine, orthopaedic and spinal applications." said Marcel Meister, CEO, Meister & Cie AG.

Dyneema Purity fiber and the new braiding technology will be presented by DSM at COMPAMED 2017 in Düsseldorf, Germany, on 13-16 November.
