Hohenstein Institute Develops Comfortable, Hygienic Pillow Encasement

As part of a research project, scientists at the Hohenstein Institute — a Germany-based textile research and testing laboratory — have developed a comfortable pillow encasement for use mainly in settings where bed occupancy frequently changes, such as in hospitals, care homes and hotels.
 
The new type of pillow encasement combines a warp-knitted fabric with a bacteria-resistant membrane on the underside of the fabric. According to the Hohenstein Institute, the fabric construction offers a considerable reduction in noise such as the rustling sound often experienced with conventional pillow encasements; and it also provides improved sweat absorption and wicking, breathability, and softness and suppleness.
 
The Hohenstein Institute reports it has tested the pillow encasements to ensure the new textile construction is able to withstand commercial processing.
