Pireta has developed a unique additive process that adds conductivity to fabrics at any stage – from yarn through to completed garment. Pireta’s process ensures best-in-class conductivity with no impact on garment performance, drape or handle.
Wearable technology is now a significant market, with wearable sensors being woven into fabrics to measure physiological changes and track movement, distance and speed. Smart textiles have applications across a variety of sectors including military, emergency services and defence, healthcare, fashion, athletics and elite sports, and RFID tagging.
Pireta’s technology was developed at National Physics Laboratory (NPL), a partner in the Rainbow Seed Fund.
