Textile Instruments has won the World Textile Information Network (WTiN) Future Textile Awards for Innovative Start-up at the 2018 Innovate Textile & Apparel Conference (ITA) held in Amsterdam, Holland. At ITA, Textile Instruments showed a novel concept in smart textiles: a washable fabric that monitors health-related vitals without wires and battery packs.

Using NASA sensor technology that works without electrical connections (SanSEC), Textile Instruments has partnered with Volt Wearable Tech to pair SanSEC with Volt’s highly conductive smart yarn to allow for application in any textile. Thus Textile Instruments has successfully developed a fabric-based wearable platform with an ability to scale to the masses. Textile Instruments’ approach to sensor technology is also challenging the industry to begin to see textiles as having an IQ – also known as intellectual quotients, said a press release from the company.

“Winning the Future Textile Awards is a reflection of the revolutionary progress we are achieving in pairing wireless technology with functional textiles,” said Susan Bernard, founder and CEO of Textile Instruments. “This is an exciting industry to be a part of as we help to craft the narrative and form strategic partnerships that are leading the way to create textiles of the future.” (PC)
