Researchers and scientists have made regular conductive by using nanotube thread. These fibers are Soft, flexible and conductive as much as metal wires. Clothing sewed with these fibers are wearable, comfortable ad unbreakable in motion.
The shirt should be snug against the chest to obtain reliable result.
Nanotube fibers serve as electrodes to connect electronics like Bluetooth transmitters to relay data to a smartphone or connect to a Holter monitor that can be stored in a user’s pocket.
According to the scientists that have invented these fibers, we can use the nanotube fibers sewed into fabrics to integrate antennas or LEDs. Minor modifications are required to let the apparel monitor the vital signs, the force exertion or the respiratory rate.
Besides, Scientists can include Human-Machine interfaces for automobile and soft robotics; or antennas for the health monitors and ballistic protection in military uniforms.
Thanks to all these characteristics: the high conductivity, the good contact with the user Skin, biocompatibility and softness, the carbon nanotube threads are a good component for wearables.
