Nonwovens are the preferred material for many wound dressing applications in the medical field. The alarming rise of blood borne diseases, strains of drug-resistant bacteria, new viruses, and other sources of hospital infection has made nonwoven materials the indispensable choice for wound dressing fabric and other medical applications.

Wound dressing fabrics are intended to promote wound healing and prevent infection. Nonwoven wound dressings and bandages can be developed for safe direct contact with the skin, and also strong enough to wrap and secure the wound dressing. Some specific nonwoven medical products and flexible nonwoven materials used in wound care along with wound dressings include, bandages, wraps and plasters for making casts, gauze, wadding, absorbent pads, and medical tapes.
