Ohmatex develops physiological and environmental sensors for inclusion in medical devices, sportswear, and protective clothing. We work with textile pressures sensors, physiological sensors (respiration, heart rate, fall detectors, EMG, NIRS), capacitance sensors and heat detection sensors.
We develop, test and validate sensors, working with medical experts, physiologists and the European Space Agency to test, trial and validate our products.
Encapsulating electronics into modules for easy attachment or integration to fabric.
We work with the latest in microelectronics to develop sensor platforms which combine batteries, PCBs and blue tooth modules in single chargeable units to control and power sensors. We use moulding and 3D printing techniques to produce washable solutions, for attachment to the garment, or we can design detachable units which can be included in the garment, but removed for washing.
Ohmatex has introduced conductivity into textile ribbon to provide an alternative to standard wiring, which is comfortable, robust and washable. In addition we work with an extensive network of suppliers of conductive threads and fabrics, printed and stretchable electronics, conductive glues and inks, which gives experience in a wide range of techniques and technologies.
We provide a number of solutions for connecting electronics within textiles. These include a washable connector designed specifically for use with textile, standard jack connectors, USB connectors, and customized connector solutions.
You know how to develop sensors, programme, make things work – but you have no idea how to put it into textile in a way that anyone could wear.
