Layered absorbent structure

A distinctive absorbent article includes an absorbent core having multiple absorbent layers, wherein the absorbent layers interact in such a manner which preferentially locates absorbed liquid in an appointed, high saturation wicking layer. The localization of the liquid within this wicking layer increases the potential of this layer to move liquid through capillary action due to the higher saturation level and increased amount of liquid available. The intake capability of the absorbent system is maintained or improved over current systems by keeping a second layer of the absorbent system at low saturation levels through as many insults of the product as possible, while providing optimum intake performance through appropriate control of the composite properties. The low saturation in this layer provides void volume for the incoming insult as well, as a high permeability, thus increasing the intake rate of the absorbent system as a whole, but the structure of the low saturation layer is also balanced to provide an appropriately high level of capillary tension to provide enough control of the liquid to stop leakage from occurring. This low saturation layer is used in addition to a surge material and provides intake functionality in addition to that provided by the surge material. In particular aspects of the invention, the body side layer of the absorbent core does not extend over the entire surface of the overall absorbent core, therefore is not used as the high saturation, wicking layer, but as the intake layer. This arrangement also allows the intake layer to be in direct contact with the incoming liquid, therefore allowing for more immediate access and improved intake function.

Porous medical device and method for its manufacture

Porous bioabsorbable, bioactive and load-bearing composite medical device structure includes a plurality of regular textile planar layers (1a, 1b . . . ) formed of continuous bioabsorbable polymer matrix and bioceramic fibers acting as reinforcements, both included in continuous fibrous elements (3) forming the textile layers. The layers are placed on top of each other to form a structure having two dimensions (x, y) at right angles to each other according to the two dimensions of the textile layer and a third dimension (z) perpendicular to them and resulting from the piling of the layers. A plurality of passages extend through the layers as a result of the openings (2) defined by portions of the continuous fibrous elements (3) extending substantially in the direction of the plane. The continuous fibrous elements (3) comprise both bioactive ceramic reinforcing fibers which form a reinforcing structure and a bioabsorbable polymer matrix material which forms a matrix which binds the layers together and also binds the portions of continuous fibers defining the openings together, thereby forming the passages and stiffening the structure. This bioactive and bioabsorbable composite structure is suitable to be used as a basic structure in medical devices, especially in osteochondral applications where the load-bearing properties of implant are required.

The invention relates to a nano-fiber covering yarn electrostatic spinning device and application thereof. The nano-fiber covering yarn electrostatic spinning device comprises a twisting device, a backing-off device, a winding device, a double-needle electrostatic spinning device and a control system. The invention also provides a method for preparing electrostatic spinning nano-fiber covering yarns. The method comprises the following steps of performing spinning by using prepared spinning liquor through the double-needle electrostatic spinning device; depositing nano-fibers on a metal funnel and core yarns; uniformly winding the nano-fibers on the core yarns moving at constant speed by rotating the metal funnel; and finally forming the nano-fiber covering yarns of which skin layers are nano-fibers. The invention also provides another method for preparing a nano-fiber fabric. The other method for preparing the nano-fiber fabrics comprises the following steps of using water soluble yarns as core yarns; preparing the nano-fiber covering yarns by using the method; preparing a covering yarn fabric by using a textile technology; and dissolving the core yarns to obtain the nano-fiber fabric. The maneuverability is high; the nano-fiber covering yarn electrostatic spinning device is novel in structure; and the nano-fibers on surfaces of the covering yarns are arranged controllably.
