With BIENESMART 21, AITEX has developed smart textiles that allow:
- Monitoring of physiological parameters.
- Measurement of electrical activity
- Measurement of biological parameters by screen-printed electrodes.
- Measurement of electrodermal activity
Monitoring of physiological parameters
Various prototypes capable of measuring physiological parameters have been developed. To improve signal reception, embossed electrodes have been developed that eliminate noise and optimize measurements. In addition, several integration and fixation systems have been designed and manufactured that have allowed the connection of the fabric with the control electronics, in a simple, discreet way and with reduced dimensions.
Measurement of electrical activity
Prototypes capable of measuring the electrical signals of the abdominal, lower back, quadriceps, hamstrings and biceps muscles, among others, have been developed.
Measurement of biological parameters by screen-printed electrodes
Screen-printed electrodes have been developed on a flexible substrate capable of collecting information on a person’s sweat using various silver and carbon inks, which have made it possible to recognize the signal generated by sweat, both glucose and lactate.
Electrodermal activity measurement
Electrodermal activity or EDA is one of the electrical properties of the skin. AITEX has designed and manufactured different systems for measuring people’s electrodermal activity, with the aim of being able to monitor changes in conductance, thus analyzing the use of new devices as meters of psychophysiological activity in real time.
