The Future of Performance Fabrics
There is a fair amount of material production and scientific innovation going on in responsive textiles. Recent studies in the effectiveness of these materials have clinically proven that they can boost local circulation and tissue oxygenation to enhance performance and recovery among healthy individuals.
We'll examine these benefits in relation to Celliant™, a responsive, bio-ceramic product that captures, converts and recycles the body’s heat as infrared energy. This process promotes cell oxygenation and local circulation while maintaining dryness and comfortable temperature, promoting more energy, endurance, strength, comfort, quicker recovery, better sleep.
The results of a placebo-controlled clinical trial, recently published in the Journal of Textile Science & Engineering (Sep 4, 2019), confirms that wearing Celliant™ fabric shirts for 90 minutes can increase tissue oxygenation in the skin, and increase grip strength in the dominant hand.
Our presentation explores everything required to bring this innovative textile to market, from design to manufacturing and engineering process, to supply chain and all the clinical and regulatory hurdles along the way.
We’ll uncover the science behind this innovative textile and discuss the approach to research and development. We'll overview successful applications, and share new exciting solutions (including the development of a nonwoven fabric using an elastomeric polymer called Hytrel™, and our interest in delivering Celliant™ using a viscose fiber).
▪ Innovation in textiles is transitioning from material performance to human performance
▪ Bringing science to textiles is extremely challenging from both a regulatory and supply chain perspective
▪ With proper strategic planning and collaboration change and innovation is achievable and inevitable
