fabric with feeling
eTextiles are everyday fabrics, integrated with electronics that enable them to sense and react to the world around them.
Our patent pending smart fabric, is able to intelligently map pressure across its surface.
This provides a comfortable and familiar interface for tracking and reacting to the motion of our bodies.
stopping the pressure
When sitting at a desk or lying down in bed, our bodies keep us safe from pressure ulcers by constantly repositioning our weight.
Wheelchair users who have reduced sensation and lower mobility are not always able to do this independently or regularly enough.
Our smart fabric can be embedded into a support surface, to continuously monitor pressure and alert to when and how to reposition when at risk.
from the atom up
Technology can help more people when it seamlessly integrates into our everyday.
Keeping our smart fabric soft and flexible required us to engineer the sensing infrastructure right down at the atomic level.
This breakthrough is enabled by the next generation of nanotechnology, graphene and two-dimensional materials.
