Textronics Inc a leader in the development of wearable sensors for health and fitness monitoring, is offering a developer's kit that includes the company's textile electrodes for use by designers, researchers and product developers interested in creating their own interactive wearable prototypes.

The kit contains stretchy textile electrodes that can be cut and sewn for custom applications. When incorporated into garments or wearable devices, the fabric sensors offer a comfortable way to monitor the wearer's heart rate.

The developer's kit also contains samples of transmitter modules that are capable of receiving bio-feedback collected by the sensors.

“We have constant interest from researchers, developers and students who are looking for innovative material solutions,” said Textronics CEO Stacey Burr.

“We are encouraging the use of our textile electrodes in new concepts by making them available for purchase in a kit that includes materials necessary to make a prototype design.

It is our goal to encourage new applications where Textronics can partner in the development and commercialization for the future.”

Textronics' patented textile sensors are designed to be worn next to the body. They are FDA- approved and capable of capturing ECG-quality heart rate data from the body.

The textile solution offers a comfortable alternative to adhesive electrodes and metal wristbands commonly used with ECG instruments. They also are machine washable and reusable.
