Company Summary

 

Footfalls & Heartbeats has developed a proprietary process for manufacturing smart knitted fabric to measure, in real-time, compressive force and tensile force. Using yarn interactions within the textile structure to make the fabric itself the sensor, we avoid the need for wires or miniature electronics in the garment. This enables applications in multiple markets including medical compression therapy with FHL’s first licensee: Medi GmbH&Co.KG.
