Company Ohmatex, a medical device manufacturer, was interested in looking at ways to document repetitive manual work and the physical effects of same.
A key obstacle was finding a way to secure a firm point of measurement that would not alter, but could form the firm basis of registrations over several weeks.
Tytex was invited to make explorative investigations and find synergies from various sources of know-how.
Sparring was made with both Tytex and external knitting technology specialists/partners on functionality and raw materials (yarn/fabric, including conductive yarns).
The findings were incorporated in a unique and custom-made textile solution – so far unseen in the market.
A high-performing wearable technology platform was introduced into the market giving the medical device manufacturer a technological advantage to the competition.
Easier handling and less contact required by care giving/test personnel.
Strong commercial performance and faster market penetration platform than expected.
