Myant Inc. Defines the Future of E-Textiles Connections

Myant Inc., the global leader in Textile Computing and smart textiles, is a key sponsor at the IDTechEx Show 2019, where they are showcasing the next generation of wearable technologies, smart textiles, and textile computing platform. Myant will be highlighting their SKIIN wearable product line, with a focus on three areas - Connected Work, Connected Health, and Connected Life. The SKIIN Connected Work platform is a nominee for this year's best technology award.
Myant will be presenting the most advanced technologies in Light, Heat, and Biometrics to enhance the experience of the users, in particular at-risk individuals, alongside creating solutions for multiple industries.
SKIIN's biometric sensing underwear provides access to the biodata of the user and connects them to their body, healthcare professionals, employers, and insurance providers, all of whom have a vested interest in the health and safety of the workers. The system also continuously monitors the users stress and recovery as well as sleep patterns.
The SKIIN heated base layer features distributed textile-based heating elements and temperature sensors to detect skin temperature, providing thermal regulation for low-temperature work environments (i.e., outdoors, refrigerated environments, etc.). This interface is developed based on the latest advancement in fiber & materials science and advanced knitting technology, providing a seamless experience through a comfortable, washable garment.
SKIIN's lights visibility interface features embedded electroluminescent lighting technology to enhance the visibility and safety of users during their night activities. This technology is based on Myant's propriety printed lighting technology with uniform light distribution that increases the awareness of distracted drivers as they approach the user. This technology can be applied to any textile product, operating under various environmental conditions with a broad range of lighting intensity and patterns.
Myant is looking toward accelerating the path towards connected societies, in which the digitization of textiles connected to the Myant platform creates a different type of social connectedness for all beings. Myant's vision for connected societies would allow for longer life expectancies and a general increase in health and wellness by creating connected medical care, encouraging preventative care, and enabling community support. Myant's CEO Tony Chahine will be sharing his vision of the future in his keynote - Textile computing: Human Connectedness Reimagined on November 20th from 12:10 pm-12:30 pm in Grand Ballroom E.
Milad Afshar, Myant's Director of Advanced Materials and Biosensors, will be speaking on the subject of advanced functional materials in health care applications on November 20th in the exhibition theatre from 13:40-14:00.
With all of these contributions, Myant Inc. continues to remain a driving force in pushing the frontier of textile computing technologies to bring innovative solutions to an increasing number of industries. With their unique capabilities they are defining a new category of wearable technologies, textile products, and interfaces to digitize the human biodata, activities, behaviors, and relationships to provide a fully integrated human-computer interaction with IoTs and AI platforms to solve some of the most challenging problems in the society.
Myant is on a mission to transform human connectedness and has created the world's first platform that ambiently connects people to their own bodies, to each other, and to the world around them through the use of textiles that can sense and react to the human body. With an extensive patent portfolio, key exclusive relationships within the Textile Computing industry, a multidisciplinary team of research scientists, engineers, data scientists, fashion designers, knitting specialists and over 80,000 ft² of manufacturing capacity, Myant is turning everyday textiles into bidirectional interfaces for human-computer interaction.
