There are many kinds of medical textiles, such as woven textiles, non-woven textiles, braided textiles and knitted textiles. Non-woven medical textiles constitute more than 60% of the total medical textiles used, but are almost disposable ordinary medical textiles. While knitted fabrics forms a small part of the medical textiles, but are greatly applied in high-tech medical textiles, containing artificial blood vessels, hernia patches, cardiac support devices, knitted medical expandable metallic stents and tendon scaffolds. Knitting structures, including weft knitting structure and warp knitting structure. The knitted textiles are popular for their loose structure, greater flexibility, higher porosity, more flexible structure and better forming technology. The present article will introduce some knitting structures and materials applied in the medical textiles in accordance with non-implantable, implantable, extra-corporeal textiles and healthcare and hygiene products.
