AirX® vs. neoprene

 

Considering to upgrade from neoprene? We recommend AirX®    

The use of neoprene in medical devices like bandages, orthotics, prosthetics, sleeves and liners is widespread due to lucrative costs. However, it’s also a known fact that neoprene has some not so nice features, particularly around breathability and moisture building which has a negative impact on user comfort.

We would like to recommend AirX® spacer material as an innovative, latex-free alternative to neoprene, foam and elastics. By using AirX® spacer textiles you will lift your medical devices or reha products to the next level in terms of user comfort, as it is highly breathable, and comfortable to the skin, leading to increased patient comfort and compliance. AirX® offers the support without the issues of moisture build up.

AirX® is a Danish technology?? with a positive track record of more than 20 years for flexible high yielding knitting capabilities.
