SMARTEX s.r.lis a small limited liability company founded in 1999 with the aim of developing e-textile or new electronics structures compatible with textile processes and manufactures. Core activity is the implementation of bio sensing apparels (Tshirts, bands, vests, etc.) able to monitor vital signals, as electrocardiograms, heart rate, respiration signal and rate, index of activity as well as bio-potentials like EMG. Moreover systems based on piezoresistive textile sensors allow to acquire biomechanical signals for the recognition of gesture and posture. Smartex has also gained experience in the design and the implementation of textile solutions for biochemical sensing and body liquid handling. Smartex owns the intellectual property and the technical knowledge to implement the textile sensing, the acquisition and the extrapolation of parameters in different applications spanning from sport to clinical rehabilitation. The team is composed by electronic engineers, one textile designer, bioengineers and physicists. Smartex has a significant experience in the development of safe, comfortable and easy-to-use interfaces between human and devices, focusing on the fabrication of multifunctional interactive fabrics, flexible and conformable to the human body for enabling the delivery of key enabling technologies (services, devices, products) in areas such as:
One of its key products, namely Wearable wellness System (WWS), is a fully integrated wearable system specifically designed to continuously monitor a cluster of physiological parameters while moving. More information for its capabilities is available on the web site.
Smartex produce all components of the product above, having experience in manufacturing of sensitized garments, electronic devices, firmware and software.
