Industry Solutions with Textile Computing

Textiles have, since the beginning, been inextricably linked to humans. No other element in our lives provides such universal coverage: nearly 100 percent of the population, nearly 100 percent of the time, and nearly 100 percent of the body’s real estate.

And today, thanks to advances in material science that allow for the application of technology in textiles at a nanoscale, we can connect humans directly to IoT through Textile Computing.

The result is the development of a platform to develop proactive and anticipatory solutions for health, wellness, industrial and everyday living.

SKIIN Smart Textile Platform

SKIIN is disrupting the apparel and textile industry by knitting soft electronics into everyday clothing and other textile-based solutions across industries.

Garment-Based Neuro-orthosis

In collaboration with the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Myant has been developing garments that can aid in recovering lost motor function and in improving muscle tone for individuals with spinal cord injury, stroke and muscle atrophy.

What was once a tangled mess of wires connected to a bulky controller for FES treatment is now simply electrodes knitted into the clothing itself that can be controlled from a smartphone.

Heated Garments

We have incorporated heating technology directly into various form factors, including socks, leggings, a base layer shirt, and a hoody.

We are currently preparing an iteration of this technology for market. By combining this with sensors, we can create a garment that automatically adjusts its heat output according to external and body temperatures.

VX360

Flexible, paper-thin, machine washable and almost weightless, VX360 lamps are embedded in textiles to create luminescent clothing. As visibility gear, VX360 makes the wearer visible from all angles, unlike reflective gear which requires a direct light to be shone on it.

The blue light is also visible in a foggy, hazy atmosphere, as it bounces off the particles, unlike the light from an LED which tends to dissipate.

LifeVest

ZOLL’s LifeVest is worn by patients at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD), providing protection during their changing condition and while permanent SCD risk has not been established. Approved by the FDA in 2001, it has since saved thousands of patients’ lives.

Zoll has partnered with Myant to design and manufacture future generations of the device more comfortable and efficient using the benefits of advancements in materials science, state-of-the-art machines, yarn with nanotechnology, and advanced manufacturing.
