Ohmatex uses PolyPower stretch sensors in smart garments

Danish smart textiles technology developer - Ohmatex has partnered with Danfoss PolyPower to supply PolyPower stretch sensors for wearable applications.

The sensors combine PolyPower stretch sensing technology with an Ohmatex textile cabling and connector.

The combination of the stretch sensor with Ohmatex textile cabling enhances the comfort and ease with which it can be integrated into textile garments and wearable medical devices.

It is a high quality advanced development in stretch sensing technology and one of the most unobtrusive and conformable capacitive sensors currently on the market.

Ohmatex said it is currently using PolyPower stretch sensors in the development of a sensor platform for health and fitness applications, part of the FP7 MyWear project.

Ohmatex has successfully integrated the stretch sensors into a shirt for monitoring respiration rate to enable self-monitoring for people with chronic lung disease.

The result of this development is a garment which transmits highly accurate data to mobile and web platforms, together with reliable, washable and robust textile integration.

“We have worked with PolyPower stretch sensor to come up with the best way of attaching and encapsulating it in a smart textile garment”, says Henrik Søgarrd, MyWear Project Manager at Ohmatex.

“Encapsulating the sensor within the textile has several purposes: it protects the sensor to ensure a robust smart textile garment, enhances the comfort and design of the garment and increases washability”, he adds.

“We are very satisfied with the textile integration we have been able to achieve using PolyPower stretch sensors”, Henrik informs. (AR)
