A contemporary wearable electronic collection with thermal regulation where pattern, heating position and temperature can be customised


A Novel Wearable Thermal Functional Textile with Conductive Materials

The aim of this project is to develop a new generation of thermal textiles and specific manufacturing processes, based on wearable electronic technology, which can be incorporated into textile products for the provision of temperature control both in general apparel and in specialized medical applications.

The creation of the conductive fabric can be achieved by using a combination of textile-based technologies, which include a new form of multi-functional fibre and yarn developed by winding, doubling, twisting and weaving/knitting. A novel thermal fabric can be created on the theoretical basis of the resistive network model, i.e., sheet resistance, length resistance and contact resistance with fabric structure and density. By designing the heating patterns on the fabric, the heating location, pattern and temperatures can be controlled. This enables efficient use of energy and achievement of desired effect.
