The garments in this line (including a base layer top, leggings, socks, a balaclava, and gloves) are wire-free, embedded with textile sensors that can measure body temperature and react by actively delivering heat through the textile to maximize comfort and enhance productivity. Active thermal workwear is one of the first applications of Myant’s larger vision to transform the future of “work” via textiles that can sense and react to the human body.
An office environment connected to the Myant Platform will be aware of the worker’s current physical and psychological state, anticipate their needs, and react to create personalized experiences that optimize individual performance, resulting in enterprise-wide enhancement of productivity and workforce health and well-being.
Myant Inc., the pioneers in Textile Computing™, and Helly Hansen, the global technical and safety apparel brand, will be showcasing a connected safety shoe at CES 2020 (January 7-10, 2020 in Las Vegas) as part of Myant’s vision of creating a new industry by connecting people to their own body, other people, and their IoT-enabled environments in the context of work, home and play. The Helly Hansen connected safety shoe features sensors knitted into the shoe which provides continuous gait analysis, helping to track, predict, and ultimately prevent occupational same-level slips, trips and falls (STFLs) on both an individual and organizational level.
