Coated barrier fabric for a reusable medical product
Patent number: EP4043638
Date of publication: 2022-06-28
Applicant(s): STANDARD TEXTILES
Inventor(s): STEWART RICHARD, BUSHMAN BRADLEY J
A coated barrier fabric for use in a reusable medical product (e.g., surgical gown, surgical drape, etc.) is provided and has two woven or knitted plies. Each of the two plies are coated on one side with a non-fluorine containing polymer and retain similar comfort and feel of uncoated woven or knitted fabrics. The coated sides of the plies face each other (i.e., inwardly) in the interior of the barrier fabric. Because of the orientation of the plies, the coated sides of the plies can come into direct contact with and move freely against each other within the interior of the barrier fabric. The coating on each of the plies is protected from exterior and environmental factors, including repeated institutional laundering/autoclave cycles, that could abrade and degrade the coating. Thus, the useful life of the reusable medical product including the barrier fabric is extended.
Radiation shielding fabric, method for manufacturing same, and radiation shielding article using same
Patent number: WO2022/131658
Date of publication: 2022-06-22
Applicant(s): KEIMYUNG UNIVERSITY INDUSTRY ACADEMIC COOPERATION FOUNDATION
Inventor(s): KIM, Seon Chil
The present invention relates to a radiation shielding fabric, a method for manufacturing same, and a radiation shielding article using same. The radiation shielding fabric of the present invention is formed of yarn which is obtained by melt-spinning a PET base resin containing barium sulfate, and the fabric itself thus has shielding ability, thereby ensuring durability and reproducibility of shielding performance, and high strength and elasticity is realized so that the radiation shielding fabric can be applied to medical protective cloth for patients, radiation shielding clothing, etc.

Construction of a fabric based microfluidic point of care at home diagnostic system
Patent number: US20220203362
Date of publication: 2022-06-30
Applicant(s): OWENS TRACIE
Inventor(s): OWENS TRACIE
A fabric based microfluidic point of care at home diagnostic system is disclosed. The system comprising a fabric substrate one or more hydrophobic threads bound with one r more hydrophilic threads by means of weaving, knitting, embroidering, or sewing. The fabric is configured to define a flow path for a sample to flow from an introduction zone, to a preparation zone, to a testing zone, in a pattern sufficient to optimize the sample analysis required for sample diagnostic tests. The system further comprises one or more mechanical stages and one or more fluid cartridges. The mechanical stages comprise electrical and/or analytical equipment configured to record, detect, analytes or facilitate chemical reactions and/or condition of the air above the fabric to ensure sufficient for analysis. The fluid cartridges are attached to the edge of the fabric in certain zones to supply the fabric with reagents required for analysis in that zone.
