Smart Textiles & Wearables

Smart textiles have emerged as a dynamic and innovative area of the textile industry. By integrating advanced materials and technologies, they transform the way we interact with clothing and fabrics, offering exciting new possibilities for functionality and connectivity. CleviosTM possesses the unique combination of properties that makes it the superior material for smart textiles.

Conductive polymers can be fabricated into electrodes, which are essential for powering and transmitting data in smart garments. By integrating conductive polymers into textiles, it becomes possible to create wearable electronics that are flexible, lightweight, and comfortable to wear.

A wealth of applications

The potential of CleviosTM in smart textiles is vast, with numerous applications across various industries:

  • Healthcare and biomedicine: Smart textiles are used to monitor vital signs, detecting irregularities, and alerting healthcare professionals to potential issues. This can provide real-time data for medical diagnosis, remote patient monitoring, and enable early intervention.
  • Sports and fitness: In the sports industry, smart textiles enhance training and performance. CleviosTM-based electrodes can allow for the measurement of muscle activity, body temperature, and hydration levels, providing wearers with valuable insights into their performance in real-time.
  • Fashion and apparel: Smart textiles are seamlessly integrated into everyday clothing. CleviosTM-based electrodes can enable garments to have interactive capabilities, such as touch-sensitive fabrics or integrated lighting systems, transforming fashion into an interactive experience.
  • Safety: Smart textiles equipped with CleviosTM electrodes can be used to create wearable sensors that detect changes in temperature, chemicals, or toxins in the surrounding environment, providing early warning signals to security personnel or emergency responders. Furthermore, these textiles can have integrated communication systems for improved coordination and safety in hazardous situations.
