SMK Electronics Corporation, a global designer and manufacturer of advanced OEM electronic components, and Toronto-based Myant Inc, the world leader in design and development of textile computing solutions, have partnered to catalyse the development of new electronic components and mechanical interfaces for application in the emerging field of textile computing.

“Our strategic partnership with Myant is a natural next step for SMK,” said Paul Evans, president of SMK Electronics Corporation USA in a press release by SMK Electronics. “As we apply our world-leading, advanced connector capabilities to the exploding textile computing market space. Together we can develop innovative solutions for application in health care, fitness, AR/VR, automotive, aerospace and more.”

“Our partnership with SMK Electronics leverages the technologies and intellectual properties of both companies to develop, manufacture and scale electronic components for textile computing applications,” said Tony Chahine, CEO and founder of Myant. “This will greatly accelerate our development of the Skiin Textile Computing platform–a textile-based platform designed to sustain seamless human-computer interaction.

“Myant’s mission is to connect humans to others and to the world around us, by providing access to 24-hour connectivity, through the different stages of life. The possibilities are endless, with applications in health & wellness, automotive, aerospace, performance apparel and more. SMK joins the Mayo Clinic, Proteus Digital Health, the Zoll Medical Group, and others to provide advanced components for Myant’s Skiin Textile Computing platform.”

Connecting the human operating system to other systems in the environment through wearable, washable, ‘smart’ textile products, Myant’s Skiin Textile Computing platform is the equivalent of a DSL cable for the human body: tracking and enhancing human activity 24/7 across all life stages. Now in development, Skiin products will include textile-based sensors and actuators for heart health (electrocardiogram, heart rate, heart rate variability), exercise/activity (steps, calories, activity and posture recognition), sleep (sleep stages, hours slept), and stress (level and temperature), blood pressure monitoring (cuffless), chemical sensing, ovulation tracking, slip & fall detection, driver fatigue, oxymetry (blood oxygen levels), breathing rate, temperature sensing, heat delivery, EMS delivery, haptic feed-back.
