Ohmatex – smart textile technology
Ohmatex Ohmatex is a leading expert in the integration of microelectronics into textile and wearable devices. Ohmatex currently 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.
The company has participated in several FP7 projects including Safe@Sea and PlaceIT and MyWear. We are currently participating in PowerWeave and on the EuroStar project emBrace.
