SITRA has a long history of helping the mills in achieving world class quality standards by providing them Scientific test results and analysis. SITRA has been carrying out survey of quality of yarns for many years.
Hygroscopic textile yarns and in particular cotton yarn characteristics are very much related to the amount of moisture present in them. With increasing sensitiveness to snarling, spirality in hosiery yarn, etc.
SITRA, in an earlier project has developed Barbed bi – directional surgical sutures. To develop this, SITRA has designed & fabricated a pilot model equipment with production capacity of around 5 m/shift of 8 hrs.
A surgical face mask also known as a procedure mask, is intended to be worn by health professionals during surgery and at other times to catch the bacteria shed in liquid droplets and aerosols from the wearer's mouth and nose.
The aim of this project is to design hospital bed linen with improved comfort properties using nonwoven, woven and 3D knitted spacer performs, especially for coma patients; who have neither voluntary in involuntary movements.
Body comfort depends on the distribution of the pressure (body weight) at the points of contact of the body
The use of electrospun nanofibrous dressings has attracted a great deal of attention in biomedical applications such as tissue engineering, scaffolding, wound dressing, artificial blood vessels, drug delivery carriers, cosmetic and skin masks, etc.
The main objectives of the project are:
Principal goal in wound management is to achieve rapid wound closure with functional and aesthetic scar. According to the recent reports, wound healing generally begins with the initiation of four distinct but overlapping phases viz hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation and remodeling under normal conditions. Activation of these pathways determines the rate of healing of specific type of wounds.
The key objective of the project is to develop biological mesh to repair hernia by coating synthetic mesh with collagen. Collagen coating overcome various problems (infection, bowel adhesion, recurrence etc) associated with current synthetic meshes and provide mechanical support, tissue remodeling along the mesh scaffold.
Mopping pads are cleaning towels during surgery. Basically woven cotton gauze in multiple layers is stitched as pads. To improve the performance of these pads spun-lace non-woven fabric
In ringframes, doffing is a labour intensive operation requiring 6 persons for 1008 spindles. In these days of severe labour shortage, already ringframes with link coners having inbuilt stationary automatic doffing system
