TissuTex aims to become the "one stop shop" for wearable and implantable mechanoactive materials. For uses in fields as varied as stimuli responsive clothing to safety belts to surgical mesh, TissuTex's patented textile technology harnesses mechanical loads to distribute stresses and strains, enhancing function, while sustaining and enriching life.
Some surgical implant materials poorly match the natural properties of nature's own, e.g. surgical meshes that shorten or stiffen at tissue interfaces within the body.. TissTex's patented, advanced textile tech addresses these shortcomings by
From rehabilitation to sports, wearables are game changers. TissuTex's novel textile technologies enable the creation of multifunctional wearables that
TissuTex combines medical technology with connected health solutions to increase efficacy of care, while also increasing access to and reducing cost of care.
TissuTex brings equity to safety, providing transport safety solutions for all, even the most vulnerable and to date underrepresented stakeholders like women and children and automobile drivers and passengers with acute and chronic disabilities, all of whom are at a higher risk of injury in a motor vehicle accident, even when wearing a seatbelt. TissuTex's advanced mechano-active textile technology emulates the properties of mechanical tissues to dissipate forces, stresses and strains on impact.
