Our advanced medical composite products have been used in medical applications for many years. For example, medical imaging equipment like X-ray systems and CT scanners require challenging solutions to position patients during medical procedures. Patient positioning systems typically require a unique combination of stiffness, strength, low weight, and minimal impact to the quality of the patient image. Most composite medical patient positioning products utilize an engineered lay-up of composite skins (often over a high-performance foam core). Carbon fiber works well for X-ray, CT, CT/PET, Nuclear Medicine, Oncology, and similar medical equipment modalities. In MRI applications, Kevlar®, Twaron®, Spectra Shield®, or fiberglass perform better than carbon fiber. Embedded components made from metal or other solid materials are typically used for attachment points. Composiflex is also a leading supplier of structural advanced composites for other medical equipment applications.
Composiflex customers benefit from our decades of expert medical industry experience.
