Founded in 2005, Beocare is a manufacturer of innovative medical textile product solutions. It was established to exploit specific niches in the area of engineered textiles particularly in the healthcare industry.
Examples of such products are compression hosiery for thrombosis, leg movement restraints for post operative hip replacements and fixation pants for incontinence sufferers. Due to the fact that such products are lightly regulated, new product development and time to market are relatively fast compared to more highly regulated invasive medical devices.
In the EU alone sales of all medical textiles are currently over €7bln per year. The market is being driven by population growth, the ageing of the population, rising standards of living and higher expectations of quality of life as well as by developments in technology
