Smart textiles incorporate a digital component such as sensors, batteries or an electronic chip, which can fulfil different functions. Their main objective is to provide added value to the user, whether for pleasure, performance or safety.
At BISITE we have used smart textiles in various projects, especially those aimed at industrial safety. These fabrics help improve performance by monitoring human functions such as body temperature, perspiration, heart rate, respiratory rate, among others. However, there are many uses that can be applied to this type of garments, such as in the fashion and entertainment industry, since through the incorporated sensors or conductive threads they can be connected to devices and store data for later analysis.
