Printed electronics for smart textiles
Holst Centre is a Dutch research centre specialized in the development of printed electronics. Unlike regular electronics, these circuits are thin, lightweight, flexible and even stretchable. Thanks to these properties, they are extremely suitable for making smart tex- tiles. Moreover, an additional advantage is that you can think of these electronic films as a trim, that is highly customizable and can be easily integrated in a garment using the well-known assembly procedure of heat-bonding.
At Holst Centre we develop concepts in collaboration with companies from the whole value chains, such as material suppliers, fashion and sportswear brands and garment manufacturers. We focus on a wide range of technologies, like vital sign monitoring (ECG, bioimpedance, SpO2), pressure and temperature sensors, lighting, solar technology and haptic technology (vibration). By combining our technical knowhow, our design expertise and a human-centred approach we aim to create smart clothing that enhances human vitality, resilience and empowerment.
