A number of sensing garments are designed through the integration of conductive elastomer (CE) sensors into elastic fabrics without changing the substrate mechanical properties. The sensing garments, which are portable and easily usable in non-structured environments, are designed to improve motion detection, posture, and movement of human body and provide good comfort to the user. WACKER Ltd., has introduced the Elastosil® LR 3162 A/B Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSR), which guarantee non-toxicity after vulcanization, and can be used in medical and pharmaceutical applications. The technology allows to associate the sensor status to parameters related to user movements in terms of signal elaboration and data interpretation, and to extract several parameters from the sensing garment, depending on the quality of the information needed. The improved performance of movement reconstruction also allows the use of these devices in rehabilitation, sports, and multimedia fields.

Abstract

A number of sensing garments are designed through the integration of conductive elastomer (CE) sensors into elastic fabrics without changing the substrate mechanical properties. The sensing garments, which are portable and easily usable in non-structured environments, are designed to improve motion detection, posture, and movement of human body and provide good comfort to the user. WACKER Ltd., has introduced the Elastosil® LR 3162 A/B Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSR), which guarantee non-toxicity after vulcanization, and can be used in medical and pharmaceutical applications. The technology allows to associate the sensor status to parameters related to user movements in terms of signal elaboration and data interpretation, and to extract several parameters from the sensing garment, depending on the quality of the information needed. The improved performance of movement reconstruction also allows the use of these devices in rehabilitation, sports, and multimedia fields.
