Summary Background: Textiles play an important role in well-being, as the human body is in close contact with textiles most of the time. Especially, subjects with diseased or sensitive skin are able to feel small differences in well-being by using different textiles. It is well known that their skin is easily aggravated by contact with clothes of synthetic or woollen fibres. Objectives: To evaluate the skin compatibility of commercially available TENCEL ® (generic fibre name: Lyocell) textiles…

A detailed analysis on physical and comfort properties of bed linen woven fabrics
The bed sheets used in home and hospital bedding are made of cotton or polyester cotton blende d fabrics, which seems to date from the past centuries. But these home and hospital textiles need to
Functional Design of Medical Undershirt with Microbial Barrier
TLDR
Digitization of the human body was carried out by 3D scanning and based on the cloud of points measures have been taken as well as defined forms of body parts for whom the cutting pattern is being developed.
Propolis – Eco-friendly natural antibacterial finish for nonwoven fabrics for medical application
The aim of this study was to develop biodegradable medical nonwoven fabrics with added value, focusing on environmentally friendly natural substances for use in wound care. Propolis, a natural
TENCEL with a Microbial Barrier for Medical Bras
TLDR
Based on the samples tested and their characteristics, medical bra construction was developed with the aim of reducing irritation for the body part that underwent surgery.
THE FUNCTIONAL PROPERTIES OF TENCEL ® - A CURRENT UPDATE
TLDR
There is a general belief that synthetic fibers are the product of choice for active sportswear, even where the hydrophilic fibers may be superior.
Mathematical model of haptic perception of temperature
The tactile perception of temperature of fabric measured by the thermocouple placed between fabric and a fingertip was analyzed. The experimental data were compared to the mathematical model of heat

HIGHER PERFORMANCE WITH NATURAL INTELLIGENCE
Good comfort in wear is a challenge to the properties of textiles. Depending on the application, textiles must meet different requirements. The cellulosic fiber lyocell (brand names: Lenzing-Lyocell®
Itching from wool fibres in atopic dermatitis
In 24 girls with atopic dermatitis and a history of irritation to wool, more intense itching was provoked on normal skin on the abdomen by a material with coarse wool fibres (36μm) than with thinner
Epidemiology of Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
There is a need for atopic dermatitis to be given high priority in public health programmes because it produces a significant economic burden, has a serious impact on the quality of life of patients and their relatives, and has a significant impact in the economic burden.

Severity Scoring of Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
A more objective, quantitative, and accurate assessment of the severity of AD was needed, so different methods have been developed over the last years, including laboratory techniques and clinical scoring systems.
Severe psoriasis--oral therapy with a new retinoid.
TLDR
Ro 10--9359 proved to be an extremely potent antipsoriatic drug and a more than 90% reduction of psoriatic lesions could be seen in 10 patients out of 20 after 4-8 weeks of treatment.
