Technical Textiles: Technological advantage obtained by wearable technology platform

Situation

  • 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.

Action

  • 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.

Outcome

  • 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.
