The purpose of this research was to examine the effects of stockinets processed with deodorizing and antibacterial agents. The subjects were injured patients who received plaster cast immobilization. The following were performed: 1) sensory evaluation using an odor intensity measurement method, 2) measurement of residual odor concentrations of ammonia, acetic acid, and hydrogen sulfide, and 3) measurement of bacteriostatic activity values. Odor was significantly reduced in the processed stockinets (2.27 ± 0.93) compared to the unprocessed stockinets (2.92 ± 1.03). The odor concentrations were reduced and significant differences were observed in ammonia and hydrogen sulfide concentrations, but not for acetic acid. The bacteriostatic activity was 4.23 ± 0.70 for processed stockinets and a criterion of 2.2 or greater was satisfied. These findings demonstrated the deodorizing and antibacterial effects of the processed stockinets.
