A research on the deterioration of conductive fabrics, woven and knitted as result of daily use in pressure sensing application. I've conducted the research as part of the development of the 'Pressure Mat' which was the sensing unit in the pressure monitoring device which i was part of the development team on Wellssense Technologies.
The research included Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) examination of the effect of usage over the mechanical and electrical properties of the fabric. Conducted at the Nano-Characterization Department at the Hebrew University Jerusalem, Israel.
Based on the analysis, we've developed an innovative novel material with selective conductive properties. We've developed the bespoke fabric which can be seen in the picture, here shown pressure imaging using the bespoke fabric. (Pat. IB2011051016).
