Abstract

The properties of the warp knitted spacer fabrics for pressure reduction are experimentally investigated and compared to other materials. The influences of the different parameters, such as thickness, spacer yarn diameter and connecting form are also analyzed and discussed. The results have shown that the spacer fabrics have very good properties for pressure reduction when they are used as soles, mattress or cushions.
