Development of Strain Gauges Using Electrically Active Textiles With Knitting Technology For Medical Application

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The current generation of textiles, including technical textiles are passive. However, the next generation of textiles will have the ability to monitor programmed functionality. One of the solutions for incorporating the above components into a textile structure is to create electrically active zones within the structure, whose electrical characteristics could vary due to an environmental change or whose structural properties could be changed by the application of an electrical signal, for example change of dimensions due to the flow of an electrical current in the electrically active area. Generally textiles are made out of materials of very high electrical resistance and therefore these structures can be considered as materials with good electrical insulating properties. In this paper we are presenting application of electrically active textiles for strain guage application. Electromechanical texts shows the characteristics of electronic textile for strain guage application.
