FOUR UNIQUE FEATURES
Many of Tytex’s post-op garments provide differentiated and targeted levels of both compression and support. Our technological platform allow us to create garments with 4-way stretch capabilities, real seamless quality as well as fact-based sizing. The combination of our 4 unique features ensures that our garments meet both the medical and the end user requirements for a post-op garments and textiles.
TARGETED COMPRESSION FOR FASTER AND MORE COMFORTABLE HEALING
Post-op bras from Tytex are designed to provide the necessary compression and support exactly where needed. We achieve this by crafting what we call targeted compression zones that are knitted into the products.
The compression zones in our post-op bras are specially designed into each product based on medical indication. By providing targeted compression our bras not only fixate and support the breasts after surgery, but also create optimal conditions for improved wound healing.
Furthermore, the compression zones at the back of the bra serve as support as well as posture correction without compromising mobility.
4 WAY STRETCH
4-way stretch means that the material in the bra will adjust naturally along with the patient’s changing body contours after surgery.
As swelling and de-swelling are the body’s natural reaction to surgery, this product feature is invaluable, as it allows our bras to work with the body of the patient, ensuring superior fit throughout the entire recovery period. This is also a great advantage in case of a single breast surgery, as the bra will adapt to both the treated and the healthy breast. The reason is that the 4-way stretch provides superior expansion and contraction capabilities, ensuring that the material stays in contact with the skin at any time during recovery.
The 4-way stretch also compensates for possible and natural differences in breast sizes and shapes of the individual woman. This feature is extremely important in medical textiles, as it ensures that through constant fabric-to-skin contact the product will provide the necessary compression and support needed for recovery, as well as the best possible comfort at all times.
As swelling and contraction is the body's natural reaction to surgery, these product features are invaluable, and allow our garments to work with the body of the patient.
For optimum healing, the surgery site needs rest. That is why our products are designed without seams in the wound and scar area, or at any other critical sites of the applied area. We say that our bras are real seamless.
As an example our Carefix post-op bras have no seams in the cups, the sides, on the back and on the under bust band. This provides maximum skin friendliness and prevents pressure marks, as well as general irritation of skin, wound and tissue.
Our size concept is based on statistical and proven body scans and measurements (known as body knowledge) and is closely related to our 4-way stretch material.
When it comes to medical textiles and post-op garments, no size fits all. That is why we base all our sizes on:
- Body knowledge - we apply statistical and proven body scans and measurements when sizing our products
- Comfort stretch measurements - measurement processes for the finished products
- Our extensive knowledge and experience with the combination of knitting methods in different materials, thereby obtain the right compression and fixation in relation to sizing
The combination of these 3 parameters defines our size definition, ensuring perfect fit at all times. Our 4-way stretch and size concept enable the garments to fit multiple sizes which is not the case with bras made of more numb (non-expansive) material. In addition, our sizing concept also results in less SKU’s.
