Ohmatex is a pioneer in smart textile development with documented experience in the integration of electronics in technical textiles and wearable devices. Ohmatex is known for its expertise in textile integration for varied applications and for the textile cabling and connectors it has developed to facilitate the new generation of textile integrated wearables.
The company has participated in several FP7 projects in this field, most recently developing a sensor platform for garment integration in the MyWear project and methods for integrating photovoltaic and storage fibres in textile in the PowerWeave project. In addition Ohmatex has a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) to develop a garment with an NIRS (Near Infra-Red) sensor to monitor leg muscle oxygenation during astronaut training. In 2012 Ohmatex developed a medical compression stocking that measures changes in leg volume for patients suffering from edema (fluid retention) of the lower limbs.
