Ohmatex at IDTechEx Wearable USA: Astronaut Monitoring Kits

Interview with Ohmatex at IDTechEx Wearable USA. Ohmatex develops products and solutions for integrating electronics into textile. Ohmatex products include textile cabling and washable connectors which provide conductivity and connectivity for smart garments and wearable devices. Ohmatex currently has a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) to develop a garment with NIRS (Near Infra-Red) and EMG sensors to monitor leg muscle activity during astronaut training. In 2012 Ohmatex developed a medical compression stocking that measures changes in leg volume for patients suffering from edema (fluid retention) of the lower limbs.
