Abstract:

This study attempts to investigate the influence of the area of a rigid element integrated into a knitted orthopaedic support on its elasticity. Usually researches analyse compression and other properties of compressive stockings and do not investigate the influence of non-textile parts used in knitted orthopaedic supports. The main goal of this paper was to investigate the influence of the surface area of the rigid element on the elasticity of a knitted orthopaedic support. It was found that the compression of the support increases depending on the area of the rigid element in the knitted support. The rate of influence of the rigid area on compression properties rises with an increase in the elongation value.
