Spiropyrans (spiroindolinobenzopyrans) Spironaphtoxazines Naphtopyrans (chromenes) Fulgides Diarylethenes In terms of their applicability to textile fibres, spiropyrans, spironaphtoxazines, and chromenes have been found the most suitable considering fatigue, lifetime, and fastness properties. , 2011). 2 Methods and instruments for the analysis of photochromic medical textiles Recording the colour of materials that do not display it before quite specific criteria are met implies that the standardised spectrophotometers have to be upgraded or coupled with, in the case of photochromic materials, a source of ultraviolet irradiation.

Chromism is a process that induces a reversible colour change of components constituting a chemical compound. This includes changes at the molecular level such as cleavage of chemical bonds or changes at the level of molecular conformations. In most cases, chromism is based on changes occurring inside the molecule, among electrons. , 2006; Nakazumi, 1997). , 2004). Although, inorganic matter such as copper and mercury compounds, metal oxides, and some minerals exhibit chromic behaviour, only organic chromic molecules (dyes or encapsulated pigments), such as photochromic spiropyrans, spirooxazines, fulgides, and chromenes, and thermochromic crystal violet lactones are considered suitable for textile and smart medical applications.

The market size is enormous, up to the equivalent of 100 million dollars annually in the United Kingdom alone and as much as several 100 millions of dollars annually worldwide. To cast the injury or fix the position of a broken component, plaster powder is mixed with water and then applied to the injured body part such as arms and legs with a padding underlay. The cast can subsequently be easily smoothened and made to any shape when it is wet, but becomes solidified when it is dried. The dried plaster cast has a high degree of hardness and good mechanical strength 14 Advances in Smart Medical Textiles such that it can protect the injury and allow the broken bone to heal.
