Health and Care with E-Textiles

In the field of health and care we develop textiles in which sensors and actuators are integrated. This enables, for example, the measurement of vital parameters or the targeted stimulation of muscles for medical applications. If desired, development work can take place from the very beginning under medical technology standards and production environments. The sensors and actuators are integrated into the textiles in such a way that subsequent disinfection/sterilization or washability is guaranteed.

An important aspect is the application and development of special connection, assembly and production techniques, which we can offer from one source for our customers up to small series production. The last step is to secure and evaluate data security in the transfer and storage of personal data in the use cases of electronic textiles.
