The future of high-tech reusable surgical textiles

You might have heard of CHAINGE, a chain of companies committed to encourage change in operating rooms across Europe. The group members are a collective of stakeholders willing to cooperate in the active promotion of the use of high-tech reusable surgical textiles. We started activities outside the European Community and had first successes in the Balkan region. But we realized soon that the setup is insufficient for an European approach.

Our industry needs to approach the market with a common message and the momentum is now. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us the need for local sustainable solutions and shorter supply chains. As leaders of this industry we need an open discussion to come together as a group and collaborate to increase the perceived value of reusable surgical textiles.

You are personally invited to a video conference call on 1 December from 10:00 to 13:00. The event will be hosted on our website It serves as a platform and a source of inspiration to execute possibly common activities and can be used as a showcase to share do’s and don’ts.

The purpose of this meeting is to create space for discussion, streamline our ideas, openly share doubts and concerns to reach one common goal: increase the use of high-tech reusable textiles in operating rooms.

It is in everybody’s interest that you participate because your contribution is highly important. There is nothing to lose only to win so we are looking forward to hearing your input. You will receive a phone call in the next days to explain more about our initiatives and your possible participation.

We would appreciate if you register on and will keep you informed on the exact details of the event.

Stay safe & stay healthy.
