Final Report – LOOSEANDTIGHT (Development of a superelastic material that enables its cost-effective application in highly compliant compression hosiery for the over 18 millions European citizens …)

Project ID: 16868
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the LOSEANDTIGHT project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, LOOSEANDTIGHT developed a novel hybrid fabric based on superelastic fibres for manufacturing a new concept of compression hosiery that overcomes current limitations.

The report describes improvements such as reducing wearing forces, preventing damage to the yarn and fabric, guaranteeing constant stress levels during normal activities. It also highlights the researchers efforts to ensure compliancy that will guarantee as much as possible the desired compression stress levels for patients with different leg dimensions.
