Soluzioni tessili sensorizzate indossabili per monitoraggio, riabilitazione ed intrattenimento

Wearables device are increasingly popular, but there is a long way to go to make them really wearable, as they are often uncomfortable and difficult to integrate.
In Wearable & Biosensing, research project of the University of Pisa, we create innovative textile sensors that have a low impact on users' lives thanks to their high level of wearability and the possibility of a custom design.
Measuring pressure non-invasively through smart textiles can be useful in everyday life, from sport to medical and fashion, and even save your life!
Among our prototypes, we have developed a smart ballet dress that lights up with the dancer's step and a prototype of a sensorised sock for gait analysis, for early detection of neurological disorders such as Parkinson's, enabling effective therapies and savings in healthcare costs.
