Use Case

Danish PRECURE (www.precure.dk), a device manufacturer, has developed a product to document repetitive manual work and the physical effects on the elbow. One of the key issues is to secure a firm point of measurement that would not alter when moving the arm. Tytex contributed with its extensive knowledge about raw materials (yarn/fabric, including conductive yarns) and knitting technology to fulfil the goal to make a lightweight comfortable sleeve where the conductive skin electrodes laminated to the fabric ensure the right fit and stretch and support accuracy in the measurement of muscle activity.
