They can be worn close to the body, directly on the body or even in the body - wearables are conquering more and more areas and are becoming increasingly self-evident in everyday life. The development of this global growth market would be inconceivable without reliable, energy-efficient batteries. In wearables, the batteries determine performance and service life. At the same time, they have to meet growing demands and should become smaller, lighter and more efficient.
From 28-31 Januray, ISPO 2018, the world’s leading sporting goods trade fair, takes place at Messe München in Munich, Germany. On Monday, 29 January from 12am to 1pm, the OE-A will organise the session “Textiles 4.0: Flexible and Printed Electronics for Smart Sportswear” as part of the ISPO Academy.
Wearable technology is a growth market that encompasses more than just the sports and healthcare sectors. More and more fashion designers are including printed electronic elements into their collections. Smart clothing is another topic at LOPEC, the international exhibition and conference for the printed electronics industry, which is taking place in Munich, Germany, from 13 to 15 March 2018.
