Clothing + is working with many of the world’s top brands to build solutions to support a growing number of medical applications, from heart, lung and brain monitoring solutions to blankets which provide light therapy.
Such applications allow for treatment in a clinical or home setting and create a more amenable, convenient and user-friendly environment for the patient. They are also designed to ease treatment for the healthcare professional and to minimize days in the hospital for the patient. In some cases, this allows for remote care monitoring outside of the hospital or doctor’s office, with a convenience factor to improve patient adherence to therapy and monitoring.
With the demand for healthcare smart textiles expected to escalate during the next decade, companies who can arrive to the market first are likely to achieve greater market share faster than their competitors.
Clothing+ gives customers the first to market advantage and mass production scale. With our deep, interdisciplinary textile-integrated electronics expertise, Clothing+ enables powerful innovation, and helps to reduce time to market. Clothing+ was the first to bring textile-integrated electronics to market – in 2003. More than a decade later, Clothing+ is the leading manufacturer of mass produced “techstyles” – products featuring electronics that disappear into clothing. And that’s just the beginning. A new 200K square foot Clothing + plant, opening in the first quarter of next year in Suzhou, China, will be ISO 13485 certified. This certified plant allows smart textiles to be manufactured to meet medical healthcare standards – a critical requirement for healthcare companies exploring smart textile applications.
