4Dflexi - 4 Dimensional - Leading the way in breathable textile technology
Years of development has delivered a NON SWEAT skin friendly fabric, ideal for orthopaedic bracing.Polyester based, our new 4Dflexi fabric has many advantages over its conventional rival, Neoprene.
For many years clothing has been made from Polyester, so much so in fact that our brain has learnt to ignore it. The ability to make bracing from fabric that the body sees as a second skin is invaluable, especially when bracing must be worn for extended periods during injury or through disability.
Polyester is the name of the fibre extruded from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a widely used synthetic fibre traditionally used in clothing and bedding. Polyester does not “leach” any chemicals and is food safe and used extensively in medical applications due to its safe nature.
Polyester is unaffected by moisture and there are no health concerns associated with polyester fibre: it is non-irritant, non-toxic and hypo-allergenic.
Finally, Polyester fibres do not contain nor produce any ozone depleting substances or gases. They are also odourless and contain negligible volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). It is classified as “no more toxic than wood”. Its thermal insulation performance has been proven during expeditions to the coldest places on earth.
