  author={R. Chattopadhyay and Moumita Bera},
Elastic knitted fabric tubes are used as pressure garments and pressure bandages in compression therapy to mitigate many physical ailments of human beings. Laplace law has been extensively used for prediction of pressure at the interface of human body and elastic tube by many. However, it has been stated to be inadequate in some cases. Human body is compressible because of presence of soft tissues. This characteristic has not been taken into account. In the present paper a mathematical model…

Predictive modelling of compression garments for elastic fabric and the effects of pressure sensor thickness

Abstract This research has been conducted to develop mathematical models to predict the compression pressure and strain value of fabric based on Laplace’s law. The experiment was designed in

Predicting Compression Pressure of Knitted Fabric Using a Modified Laplace’s Law

A good correlation was observed between the experimental and calculated pressure values for all combinations of fabrics, mounted with variable tension on the cylinder, and over the considered range of pressures the difference between the two datasets was generally less than 0.5 mmHg.

Correlation of yarn feeding to the dimensional and elastic parameters of tubular knitted fabric

The yarn feeding for a loop formation is a critical factor in determining the size and elasticity of highly elastic knitted fabrics. Currently, the prevalent production processes rely on experienced

The application of pressure garments is broad, including the field of medical therapy, sportswear and equipment or in aesthetic garments. The compression exerted by pressure garments primarily

Fit And Pressure Comfort Evaluation On A Virtual Prototype Of A Tight-Fit Cycling Shirt

Abstract Graduated compression is widely used for medical application to prevent perioperative venous thromboembolism, but other applications such as sportswear can potentially also benefit from it.

Compression of limbs by tight bandages

Human body parts are sometimes compressed by tight clothes, footwear, bandages etc. Therefore, it is important to balance between functionality and comfort of garments in order to avoid negative



Model to Predict Interfacial Pressures in Multilayer Elastic Fabric Tubes

In apparel production, many compressive garments such as girdles and corsets are generally made from more than one layer of elastic fabric, the layers sewn together to improve the functionality of
