Textile with Integrated Sensors

Textile with integrated sensors of ELASTOSIL® Film from WACKER. The mechanical expansion and tensile movements cause changes in capacitance in the sensor. Their subtle nuances can be measured and thereby used for sensory purposes, for example to make body movements visible. Thanks to these kinds of sensors, the future holds entirely new possibilities to virtually display movements – for instance for therapy or training purposes. At K 2016 in Düsseldorf, WACKER will present the first functional prototype in hall 6, booth A10.
