unnamedMedical devices supplier Thuasne Group has acquired Kansas, USA-based Knit-Rite, which was founded in 1923 and specialises in medical textiles, and its Therafirm division dedicated to gradient compression hosiery and socks.

As a result of the acquisition, Thuasne of Levallois-Perret, France, has strengthened its position in the US and has enabled it to enter the market for orthopaedic prosthetic devices, such as post-amputation prosthetic socks and prosthetic textile interfaces.
