Drawing on years of textile experience and collaborative efforts that involve fiber and film producers, weavers and finishers, the Brookwood Medical division provides a diversified product range that is unmatched in the industry. Brookwood’s advanced coating and lamination technologies include polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride and blended rubber fabrics with soft, low shear properties, excellent fluid resistance and moisture vapor barrier characteristics, which are suited for many medical applications including foam core mattresses, blood pressure cuffs and inflatable mattress inserts.
Brookwood also produces a line of both monolithic polyurethane and microporous ePTFE coatings and laminates that demonstrate excellent moisture vapor transmission. These technologies are excellent for mattress cover fabrics as well for air powered, low air loss, continuous airflow and fluid therapy systems. Our combinations of softness, low shear, breathability and fluid resistance help to significantly reduce friction and moisture build up, thereby helping to reduce bed sores. Whether you are combating disease or saving lives, Brookwood Medical gives you fabrics that are effective and that provide comfort.
Brookwood's line of innovative high tech coated and laminated fabrics for the medical industry includes:
Brookwood’s DERMA-PLUSH® two-way and four-way stretch fabrics are the latest in a line of innovative fabric developments. DERMA-PLUSH® fabrics are super soft, pliable, and stretchable fabrics with excellent recovery properties. This stretchable material should significantly reduce “hammocking”, thereby reducing the interface pressure between the mattress surface and the bony prominences of the patient. DERMA-PLUSH® is also available in an RF Weldable version.
