Textile-based transducers are an emerging technology in which piezo-resistive properties of materials are used to measure an applied strain. By incorporating these sensors into a sock, this technology offers the potential to detect critical events during the stance phase of the gait cycle. This could prove useful in several applications, such as functional(More)
Unobtrusive sensors are an important element in wearable systems. One approach in constructing unobtrusive transducers is to use smart materials and then integrate them into smart unobtrusive fabric structures. These types of transducers are called fabric transducers (FibreMeshed Transducers or FMTs). Fabrication is carried out via textiles manufacturing(More)
The area of smart textiles presents an opportunity for collaboration to occur between other fields. However, despite the need for multi-disciplinary work there is a lack of literature to support how disciplines work together within this field. This paper discusses the research proposal submitted as part of the PhD study where a pilot study investigation was(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging is a widely used technique for medical and materials imaging. Even though the objects being imaged are often irregularly shaped, suitable coils permitting the measurement of the radio-frequency signal in these systems are usually made of solid copper. One problem often encountered is how to ensure the coils are both in close(More)
Textiles provide an ideal structure for embedding sensors for medical devices. Skin temperature measurement is one area in which a sensor textile could be particularly beneficial; pathological skin is normally very sensitive, making the comfort of anything placed on that skin paramount. Skin temperature is an important parameter to measure for a number of(More)
The advantages of producing 3-D conductive knitted textiles for the purpose of generating heat are enormous. Products may be developed that conform to complex contours providing a uniform heat distribution. Applications can be foreseen in the automotive sector; car seats, driving wheels and the interiors of door panel. Medical usage could involve conforming(More)
Textiles are one of the most important materials developed and used extensively by man. Textiles have protected us from the hazardous environmental conditions and clothed us for modesty. One of the newest and rapidly growing area of textiles is electronic textiles where electronic interconnectivity is combined with 'classical' textiles. In the first(More)
