Global Smart Textiles Market 2015-2019 - Need for Lightweight and Flexible Fabric with Infineon Technologies, Ohmatex ApS & Texas Instruments Dominating
Smart textiles are lightweight, flexible, and strong, and are hence used in a wide range of applications. Textiles are integrated with electronics to produce revolutionary new products to meet the ongoing demand for better equipped materials. These materials are used in the military sector as they replace the use of bulky batteries in garments worn by soldiers.
According to the report, smart garment medical devices are manufactured to monitor the physiological condition of patients. Smart garments such as t-shirts, socks, stockings, and insoles help in monitoring heart rate, temperature, movement and respiration, motion details, and muscle activity. Also, multi-sensors garments are now commercially available. In addition, telemedicine monitoring devices have recently started to be used for patients with congestive heart failure or pre-eclampsia in pregnancy.
