Medical Murray continuously develops and manufactures innovative biomedical textiles and materials for Cardiovascular, Tissue Engineering, and other surgical applications. Most biomedical materials used in the development or manufacturing process are found in braided, knitted, woven, or non-woven forms, and have a variety of dimensional characteristics, shapes, and methods of attachment to the finished device.
Braided structures can be used to reinforce catheter shafts, create sieves or filters, and be utilized as stents and structural frames for vessels.
They can feature high radial expansion and compaction, kink resistance, varying density, and mandrel profiles - or variable pushability, torquability, and hoop strength.
Medical Murray can manipulate many characteristics of the braided structure to suit your device's needs, such as the material, dimensions, pattern, wire count, closed ends, and pitch. We also sell pieces of nitinol and bioabsorbable braid on our online store - suitable for R&D and evaluation needs.
Knitted & Woven Materials
Knitted or woven materials are typically flat, tubular, or 3D structures sourced from our textile partners and processed into a finished device at Medical Murray.
These materials can vary in fabric density, yarn orientation, and flexibility, and can allow the inclusion of holes, reinforcement areas, and other customizations.
Medical Murray has integrated knitted and woven materials into a variety of medical devices, such as polyester stent grafts, hernia meshes, and structural heart implants.
Non-woven biomedical materials can be extruded, cast, or electrospun in the form of sheets, membranes, plugs, and tubes. We commonly utilize non-woven ePTFE and polyurethanes to cover stents and frames or to serve as a stand-alone implant while bioabsorbable polymers can be used in a variety of closure or tissue repair applications.
