Intelligent use of innovative textiles

The long-term objective of the I-tex project is to decrease the number of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI, nosocomial infections) with an intelligent use of innovative textile material.

The project aims to develop innovative textile antimicrobial or probiotic (bacteria containing) material that, combined with knowledge about infection routes, cleaning protocolls and system- and behaviour knowledge about the healthcare environments, make the local patient environment healthier.
