What Are The Uses Of Plastics In The Medical Industry?

Plastic in Medical Industry

The past few decades witnessed plastic transforming many sectors. But perhaps no sector has been significantly enhanced like Healthcare. This is because while the healthcare industry made rapid strides, plastic rose to the occasion as the preferred material of choice to manufacture critical medical components. From blood bags and disposable syringes to prosthetics, heart valves, and numerous other medical devices, the impact of plastic is far-reaching.

Let’s look at how plastic has made the healthcare industry safer and cost-efficient:

  1. It provides enhanced sterility

Plastics are relied upon to create syringes, surgical gloves, inulin pens, catheters, IV tubes, and other medical components intended for one-time use. The easy availability of plastic helps to eliminate the need to reuse and sterilize a device. This helps to control the spread of diseases.

  1. It helps boost hygiene at medical facilities

Through vinyl-based floors, ceilings, and wall coverings, medical facilities are kept safe and infections thwarted. This is because of the polymer’s unique properties that help boost hygiene.

  1. It provides enhanced safety

Plastic is durable and is used to create tamper-proof caps on blister packs, medical packaging, and disposal bags. Plastic is also shatter-proof and this ensures it can be used as a reliable transportation and storage option.

  1. It provides access to affordable healthcare

Plastic has brought down the prices associated with healthcare. It has made equipment and devices cheaper, ensuring that even the poorest can avail of advanced medical facilities.

  1. It provides increased flexibility and comfort

Prior to plastic being widely used, metal was the preferred choice. However, metallic components were not as flexible and often caused a lot of discomfort, especially when used in prosthetics.

  1. It adds a lot of innovation

Plastic can easily be moulded to suit a variety of medical applications and devices. Stents, pacemakers, and joint replacements are where you will see plastic’s ability to match the tiniest and complicated moulds.

  1. It is cost-effective

Plastic products can undergo mass production at an amazing rate. These products are not prone to corrosion or wear and tear, ensuring they are reliable as well.
