Medical tube plays a very important role in the medical industry. Medical tubes, such as catheters, are the medical or surgical device inserted into the body cavity or vessel to allow drainage, administration of fluids and access by surgical instruments.

 

The major concern in the medical tubing industry is the Coefficient of Friction (COF) value. Since plastic tubing is used for such insertion into the human body, it is critical for the frictional value to be as low as possible for a smooth travel. The lower the COF value, the easier it is for the physician to insert it to the body and the lower the pain would be for the patient. The tube composition, lubrication and design are some of the factors that affect the COF value. Thus the market is exploring more complex composite tubes to respond to the growing demand for minimally invasive surgery, wire to stimulate nerves and regulate heartbeats, vascular access and urology, and smaller catheters including that for surgery on infants.

 

In this regards, Tamkeen is proud to announce its involvement in an extensive research being done on medical tubing with the aid of local universities and consultants. The objective of the study is to determine the right formulation and catheter design that would yield a better catheter experience. Tamkeen is set to have these tubes produced in the near future.
