Intexar transforms ordinary fabrics into active, connected, intelligent garments that provide critical biometric data including heart rate, breathing rate, form awareness and muscle tension. Intexar offers stretch and comfort and is easily integrated into garments to make smart clothing.
DuPont will highlight its Intexar smart clothing technology at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, July 26-29, in Salt Lake City, UT.
“Every athlete – from professional to everyday – can benefit from smart clothing to help boost their performance, but it has to look good and feel good,” said Michael Burrows, global business manager, DuPont Advanced Materials.
Available as a suite of stretchable electronic inks and flexible substrates, Intexar is seamlessly embedded directly onto fabric using standard apparel manufacturing processes to create thin, form-fitting circuits. Garments powered by Intexar can endure more than 100 washes, and continue to perform through repeated stretching and demanding performance.
DuPont will feature two smart clothing garments powered by Intexar technology at Outdoor Retailer, the largest outdoor apparel show in the industry:
Body Plus will display a smart fitness shirt commercially available in China that uses DuPont Intexar to enable real-time monitoring and data collection, e.g., heart rate, breathing and muscles movements.
OMsignal will display two products: a high-end fitness sports bra and a comfortable, attractive lifestyle bra, both boasting advanced sensory technologies capturing real time ECG, respiration and physical activity.
