Commissioned by Wearable Senses Lab of Technical University Eindhoven. For Well-be I designed the woman’s and men’s garment and produced both garments.
In collaboration with Kristi Kuusk, Martijn ten Bhömer and TextielLab Tilburg
Well Be is a self-healing instrument incorporated in woollen clothing that is designed to prevent or treat osteoporosis (bone decalcification). Knitted pockets in the clothing contain electronic plates that stimulate pressure points on the body with pinpoint accuracy. And the wearer? Doesn't notice a thing.
Well-be explores the emerging opportunities from the combination of integrated knitted touch sensor and activating vibration motors in self-care garments. The sensors are integrated in knitted pockets.
