How do Face Masks protect us?

Face Masks have been highly prominent during these current times of health uncertainty. With the Covid-19 pandemic continuing and Winter upon us, more and more people are choosing to wear face masks to protect their health.

Commonly people wear face masks for one of two reasons. They are either trying to prevent themselves from spreading an illness they’ve knowingly or unknowingly contracted, or they are trying to prevent themselves from contracting a virus from others in the community. With that said, it is important to understand what face masks can do and how they can protect us?

The main purpose of a face mask is to prevent the spread of respiratory infections and bacteria. They should be worn by those who have symptoms that suggest that they may have a respiratory infection. Key identifying symptoms include coughing and sneezing. Healthcare masks are designed to cover the nose and mouth, so that when a person coughs, sneezes or speaks, particles that are expelled from their mouths do not spread widely and are less likely to contaminate people and surfaces. This in effect, will reduce community transmission, particularly in pandemics such as Covid-19 which are highly communicable.

Whilst face masks help to reduce the chances of spreading an illness, if you know for certain that you have a respiratory infection, it is best to refrain from coming into contact with other people, until you are fully recovered.

Face masks are also often worn to prevent the spread of illness from people who are unaware that they have contracted a respiratory illness. For example, it is possible for people with Covid-19 to be asymptomatic and fall ill without being aware that they have contracted the illness. Hence, wearing a face mask even if you do not have symptoms, will prevent you from spreading an illness that you may not be aware that you have. Asymptomatic people can spread the virus within the community unknowingly and very quickly. That is why wearing a face mask even if you are feeling well can be beneficial in reducing community transmission.

A healthcare mask is an excellent way to prevent those that are ill from spreading their illness within the community. But for those that wish to protect themselves from contracting a virus by wearing a face mask, it is a bit more complicated. In order for the person wearing the mask to be thoroughly protected, a medical grade respirator face mask that is fitted correctly should be worn. Special attention should be paid to how the healthcare mask is put on, worn and removed. Before putting a healthcare face mask on, hands should be washed thoroughly. If you touch the healthcare mask whilst wearing it, you should clean your hands. Also, when removing the mask, try not to touch the front of the mask and wash your hands properly afterwards.

Biomed specialises in producing medical grade fabrics and respiratory face masks in Australia. Our high quality healthcare face masks feature antibacterial properties that are a result of using medical grade fabrics. Biomed face masks are comfortable to wear for long periods of time, as the fabric is highly breathable and lightweight. Additionally, all of our face masks can be washed multiple times and reused. If you are concerned about your health and/or spreading a respiratory illness such as Covid-19, consider the Biomed face mask range available to purchase online via our website.

Preventing the Spread of Illness with Medical Masks

In the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic, personal protective equipment such as medical masks, are at the forefront of conversation. Many people question what medical masks actually achieve and should they wear one?

If you are unsure about whether a medical mask will be beneficial for you, then it is best to seek the advice of a medical professional such as your doctor. However, to assist you in your decision, we have outlined the purpose of a medical mask both in general and in the COVID-19 battle below.

What do medical masks do?

A medical mask is designed to cover the mouth and nose, in order to prevent the spread of respiratory infections and bacteria within the community.

When should a medical mask be worn?

A medical mask should be worn by those who are experiencing symptoms that suggest a respiratory infection, such as coughing and sneezing. By wearing a medical mask, people who are feeling unwell can minimise the chances of spreading their illness to others. Medical masks are also beneficial for health professionals who are caring for those with respiratory infections. When deciding if wearing a medical mask is necessary, be sure to do research into the product or consult your doctor for professional advice.

Are masks effective against Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

Research has shown that COVID-19 is spread through the community via particles in the air from coughing, sneezing and even speaking. It is highly contagious and is spread through close interaction with those who have contracted the virus. COVID-19 is also known to survive on surfaces for long periods of time, meaning that the virus can be transmitted through touching something that has been contaminated by someone with the illness. A medical mask can be worn by those infected with the disease to minimise the risk of contaminating surfaces and people. However, those that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 should remain in isolation until they have recovered.

Many people who have Coronavirus are asymptomatic, meaning that they do not experience any symptoms at all. People who eventually do develop symptoms can still spread the virus even before their symptoms arise. Therefore, it is possible to catch the virus from interacting with someone who appears to be well, but is a carrier of the virus. This is why it is recommended that medical masks are worn in public places where social distancing can be challenging, such as shopping centres. Wearing a medical mask in addition to maintaining social distancing, will reduce the chance of you spreading an illness that you may not be aware you have.

How to Wear a Medical Mask

Prior to putting on a medical mask, you should wash your hands thoroughly with water and soap. If you are unable to access soap and water, then you can use a hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Once your hands are clean, put the mask on your face so that it covers your mouth and nose. Secure the medical mask to your face by putting the elastic around your ears. The mask must have a snug fit around your face with no gaps.

Whilst wearing a medical mask, be careful not to touch the mask. If you touch the mask unintentionally, then you should wash your hands thoroughly. When you remove the mask, try not to touch the front of it and wash your hands immediately afterwards.

What are medical masks made from?

Biomed specialise in the production of medical grade fabrics and respiratory face masks in Australia. Our high quality medical masks have antibacterial properties, due to the use of specially designed medical grade fabrics. Our medical masks are designed to be worn for long periods and are highly breathable, making them comfortable to wear.

How can chin straps prevent snoring?

Snoring is a very common problem that affects average people everyday. Dealing with snoring can be difficult and have detrimental impacts on your health. The quality of sleep that a snoring person receives is significantly reduced, but it can be an easy problem to solve. A convenient and proven way to prevent snoring in many people is for them to wear an anti-snoring chin strap.

There are many options that your medical practitioner may suggest to solve your snoring issues. Some of which include surgery, limiting alcohol intake, losing weight, and wearing devices such as mouth guards and chin straps. Whatever choice you make, it should be the solution that you find works most reliably and comfortably for the way you sleep.

Why should I choose a chin strap to prevent snoring?

A anti-snoring chin strap is one of the many options you may try when looking to solve a chronic snoring issue. These devices are designed to help mouth snorers and are not recommended as a solution for nose snorers.

Chin straps are a non-invasive device which is worn during sleep to support your chin and keep your mouth closed. Ensuring that your mouth is closed will prevent air from passing through your throat, therefore reducing the primary cause of mouth snoring.

What are the benefits of an anti-snoring chin strap?
There are a number of key benefits to anti-snoring chin straps which make them ideal for preventing snoring for many people. The main benefit being that the chin strap is worn externally and is not required to be inserted into your mouth. Some other anti-snoring devices need to be worn in the mouth, which can cause discomfort and not ideal for people who wear dentures. Additionally, because the chin strap does not get inserted into the mouth, there is very little tooth or jaw pain, which is common with other alternatives.

Anti-snoring chin straps are also made from high quality medical grade fabrics and are designed for extended use. They can also be washed and stored easily. Due to these reasons chin straps can have a very long lifespan if cared for properly.

How do anti-snoring chin straps prevent snoring?

Chin straps are very effective for mouth snorers in particular, due to the fact that the main entry point for the air causing the sound in the throat is closed. People who are primarily mouth breathers because of nasal polyps, a deviated septum, nose injury or sinus issues will see the most significant benefit from wearing a anti-snoring chin strap during sleep.

It is important to note that chin straps are able to be used in conjunction with other snoring remedies such as medications and CPAP machines.

How do you wear an anti-snoring chin strap?

Wearing a chin strap during sleep is a straightforward process, but it can take some time for people to get used to. Wearing a device to close your mouth can be strange, however if fitted properly it should be comfortable and supportive.

The flexible fabric strap wraps over your head and is secured under your chin. In order to ensure that the chin strap is comfortable and effective it is essential that it is adjusted specifically for you and fitting as accurately as possible.

In addition, it is ideal for your chin strap to be replaced regularly as recommended by the manufacturer, to ensure it is working and fitting optimally.

At Biomed we are a medical fabric manufacturing company, who manufactures durable, lightweight and stretchy hypoallergenic fabrics which are used to manufacture CPAP equipment and chin straps. We understand the importance of robust and safe fabrics which ensure maximum comfort and reliability for patients. Biomed has a longstanding partnership with ResMed to supply chin straps, which have been providing superior patient comfort for decades.

How Sports Knee Support Braces Work?

In many cases, if you have injured a joint during a sporting activity, your medical practitioner will recommend you wear a support brace. A Sports support brace is an external supportive device which is designed to stabilise the joints, provide support and assist in your recovery. Sports Support Braces are made for a variety of body parts including knees, back, wrists, elbows and ankles. Knee Support braces are particularly common as this area can be prone to injury from sporting activities, as well as in everyday activities for overweight or older persons.

What is a sports knee brace and how does it help?

A sports knee brace is a supportive fabric accessory which is worn over the injured knee in order to provide added stability. The brace, usually made from strong hypoallergenic fabrics, fits tightly to the knee and much like sports tapes locks down the joint so it can only move in motions which will benefit recovery. However, unlike sports tapes, a sports knee brace can be removed and reused.

The knee brace can, if prescribed, be easily worn everyday without discomfort. This allows for the daily strain put on a highly active knee joint to be reduced, allowing for a greater opportunity for a timely recovery. Many injuries, especially those to major joints may heal well but result in reduced mobility and strength. Wearing a knee brace can help you to regain confidence in a recently recovered knee, returning to exercise and sport quickly.

Why do athletes wear knee braces?

Injury Prevention:
Participating in sports can put significant strain on muscles and joints due to the high energy demands, physical exhaustion, physicality and bodily contact involved. This is why many players wear braces on areas of their body which they feel are prone to injury. Wearing a knee brace to prevent an injury can often play a vital role in protecting against an injury or limiting the chance at reinjury.

Knee braces used in this way are often referred to as function braces. Functional braces are usually more lightweight than a standard knee brace and provide the additional strength and support but allow for a wider range of motion as to not hinder participation in sport.

Recovery:
When recovering from an injury, you may feel like you are be back to normal functionality but the joint may still be weak. During this time it is beneficial to wear a supportive knee brace to increase your chances of recovery to 100% without any setbacks.

For example, at the end of your recovery period you may feel as though you can jump back into sport and play as you had prior to the injury, but doing so may risk the chance of reinjury. Therefore, a knee brace can be worn to secure your recovering joint and provide added strength until you are certain your injured knee has recovered successfully. A complete recovery from a knee injury could take as long as 6 months in good cases. Therefore if you are returning to sport early or you are wanting to get back into exercise quickly, it would be worthwhile considering a knee brace.

Swelling:
Many minor injuries to a knee can result in swelling which can be painful, uncomfortable and significantly restrict mobility. Swelling occurs when blood is rushed to the site of an injury, which in turn increases pressure and the area swells up. Swelling can delay the healing process and slow your overall recovery. A great way to reduce swelling is to compress the area using a compression brace. Compression knee braces are effective in reducing swelling and discomfort. These kinds of braces are not ideal for extended use but are helpful in recovery, especially using the R.I.C.E (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) method.

Supporting an Injured or Weak Knee:
After first injuring your knee your practitioner will likely recommend that you wear a knee brace. Depending on the type of injury you have sustained, you will be requested to wear the brace anywhere between a week to multiple months. A supportive knee brace is highly effective when worn during the rehabilitation of an injury. These types of braces are usually heavier, highly strengthened and more substantial in size than other braces, as they are designed to protect the knee at its weakest time. The additional support that the brace provides ensures that you are less likely to cause damage and prevent the required healing to occur. Whilst wearing a rehabilitative knee brace your mobility will be highly reduced and they are usually less comfortable when compared to other knee braces. But if your recovery remains on track, you will out of this brace and into a smaller supportive knee brace relatively quickly.

Our range of Biosport support braces are made from high quality, specially designed medical grade fabrics and meet the strict Australian standards. Biomed is committed to maintaining the ISO 9001 quality management certification for our products. This certification demonstrates the reliability of our products and reassures our customers that the sporting support braces we sell are of the highest standards.

How can Medical Fabrics & Materials impact my health?

Medical Fabrics and Materials are commonly used in the treatment of injuries, illnesses and injury recovery as well as many other medical diagnosis’ to contain the spread of bacteria, provide comfort and reduce strain.

It is easy and reasonable to trust medical professionals when they recommend treatments. Therefore the medical materials and equipment that these medical personnel use during their practice should also garner that same level of trust in order to ensure the best possible level of care is administered.

With each item within a medical facility, such as a medical clinic or hospital, stringently tested and sanitised, you assume that there is no risk in the spread of germs and bacteria. However, even sanitary medical fabrics and equipment can become contaminated quickly when in contact with germs due to illnesses, as well as injuries and wounds. This is why it is important that medical grade fabrics which can prevent the spread contagions are used.

Why choose specialised medical textiles?

Healthcare textiles or Medical Fabrics and Materials, as they are often referred, are a type of designer fabric developed for their superior health benefits.

Using medical grade fabrics and in particular antimicrobial fabrics, when given the option is an important step in containing numerous viruses, infections and germs. This is because of the unique properties that Antimicrobial fabrics have, which offer an advanced level of hygiene and contamination resistance.  These additional hygiene and health benefits, allow for wide use of these medical grade fabrics in internal or external patient applications. Research has shown that the implementation of specifically designed and clinically tested medical grade fabrics and materials are imperative to effectively treat patients and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous germs to themselves and others.

How are technical fabrics or medical fabrics used?

Biomed specialises in the development of patented technical fabrics that are used in the manufacturing of medical equipment intended for daily and extended use, such as CPAP headgear and CPAP masks. Medical Fabrics and Materials, such as the ones offered by Biomed, reduce the irritation, blistering, and discomfort in comparison to standard materials, as well as extend the life of the often expensive medical products by preventing bacteria and germ build-up from naturally secreted acids and oils in the skin.

Trillions of germs live in your body and in a medical environment they can mix with both sick and healthy individuals, causing a breeding ground for sharing dangerous germs. Cleaning agents and disinfectants are commonly used to remove germs, but using Medical Fabrics and Materials as part of a patients treatment can be immensely beneficial to minimising the hazards in place and creating a hygienic environment that fast tracks recovery and healing.

Our numerous advancements in our medical grade fabric manufacturing including antimicrobial, allergen free, latex free and antibacterial properties have produced a growing number of requests for their use from both medical staff and patients alike.

At Biomed we have a longstanding partnership with ResMed to supply Medical Grade Fabrics for their products, which have offered superior patient comfort for decades.

Hypoallergenic Fabric Manufacturing Company

As a Fabric Manufacturer with decades in the industry, Biomed is at the forefront of Medical Textile development. There have been a number of important advancements in Medical Fabric Manufacturing in recent years. Hypoallergenic Fabrics and Antibacterial Fabrics are of particular note as they allow people who suffer from allergies and other ailments to trust their fabrics for greater comfort and to stop the spread and growth of microorganisms.

Because of these properties our fabrics are primarily used in medical and healthcare for products such as  CPAP Headgear & CPAP Chin Restraints, CPAP Masks and other CPAP Supplies. We supply Resmed with Antibacterial Fabrics for use in their industry leading CPAP & Sleep Apnea Equipment globally.

These products each require very specific fabric qualities. For example, an Anti-Snoring Chin Strap, must incorporate high quality Anti-Bacterial Fabric, which is comfortable to wear, but also allow free and easy movement without irritating the skin, and is also provide strong support without being restrictive.

However, as the benefits of Medical Grade Fabrics are discovered, their use across a wide range of textile markets beyond the medical industry has grown. Most notably for sporting applications and by military personnel, where bacteria present in sweat and body oils is prevalent and may pose a health risk.

As textile companies who Manufacture Medical Fabric are seeing a demand for their products outside of the medical sector, the breadth of applications has been further explored. For example the Fabric Manufacturing Companies can produce products like:

  • Mobility Aids
  • Clothing
  • Sports Wear
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Supportive Braces
  • Safety Equipment
  • Pillows and Bedding

Products that incorporate Medical Textiles are given an edge over their competitors as they see that customers are enjoying the numerous health benefits that Hypoallergenic Fabrics provide.

CPAP Manufacturing for Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a common but serious medical condition which interrupts the airways during sleep causing significant reduction in fresh air flow to vital organs. The condition occurs when the muscles in the throat become floppy and relaxed during sleep, which narrows the breathing passage and disrupts the access to oxygen. Sleep Apnea patients use their CPAP products daily and therefore require them to be highly comfortable and reliable. This is why the CPAP Company ResMed, develops their CPAP Masks, CPAP Headgear and Anti-Snoring Chin Straps using Biomed’s Medical Grade Fabrics.

CPAP Masks are a crucial component of CPAP treatment for individuals who suffer from Sleep Apnea. The use of masks during Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is key to effectively treating sufferers of Sleep Apnea. CPAP Companies design masks to use pressurised air in order to avoid blocked passageways and ensure comfortable breathing during sleep. Additionally, some sufferers use CPAP Chin Straps to help improve the effectiveness of CPAP therapy as the CPAP Chin Strap wraps around the head and cradles the jaw. This is important as it keeps the patients’ mouth closed during sleep, reducing snoring considerably.

However, using CPAP Masks, CPAP Chin Straps and CPAP Accessories for long periods during sleep can often increase perspiration and the build up of oils in the skin, leading to the growth of bacteria. Some patients then experience symptoms like skin irritation and breakouts in the areas around the mask as a result. In order to prevent these issues and ensure maximum comfort when using CPAP products for long periods, CPAP Manufacturers implement high quality, Medical Grade Fabrics within the CPAP Chin Straps and CPAP Accessories.

At Biomed, our allergen free, latex free and antibacterial materials are used by CPAP Manufacturers to help to minimise the occurrence of skin related issues and other summertime allergies commonly cited by Sleep Apnea sufferers. We specialise in medical fabrics that are comfortable and breathable to maximise overall comfort for the hours of use during sleep.

Whilst developing medical fabrics for use by CPAP Companies we focus on durable, lightweight and stretchy Hypoallergenic Fabrics, ensuring maximum comfort and reliability for patients who require CPAP Masks and CPAP Chin Straps for Sleep Apnea. Biomed has a longstanding partnership with ResMed to supply Medical Grade Fabrics, which have been providing superior patient comfort for decades.
