Smart textiles on the media
The interest in smart textiles keeps growing. Smart textiles are textile materials and products that interact with users and/or the environment. Our focus is on textile based sensors made of conductive fibers incorporated in clothing to record electrical activity from the heart (ECG), brain (EEG), or muscles (EMG). Incorporating smart textile sensors in regular clothing is paramount for long term or distance monitoring, e.g. in home care settings.
