Textile Computing™ is the product of years of vision and work by Myant founder Tony Chahine. Tony is a proven technology pioneer, having founded Battery Plus in the 1990’s and growing the innovative battery technology company into a national chain of over 100 stores. He became fascinated with the ubiquity of textiles and clothing and their potential as a computing platform. Tony visited supplier after supplier, from yarn companies and textile manufacturers, to R&D labs around the globe. What he found was a blind-spot about the potential of textiles to be used for computing.
Unwilling to accept this lack of vision and innovation, Myant Inc. was created to develop Textile Computing and enable innovative solutions for healthcare, wellness and other industries. Today, Myant employs over 80 engineers, technicians, designers and scientists at its Toronto, Ontario headquarters. Together with partners including Stoll A.G., & Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, as well as the Mayo Clinic, UHN Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Ryerson University and the University of Toronto, Myant is on a mission to improve the lives of billions with functional fashion and fabrics.
We believe in a future where every one of us has a digital window into what’s going on inside our bodies, the ability to use that insight to make proactive decisions about our health & wellness, and the ability to share that information with friends, family and coaches and clinicians.
