Purpose and goal

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** The aim of the project was to develop a technical platform for measuring body movements that can be integrated into clothing at a relatively low cost. The purpose of the technology is to be able to measure and analyze movement patterns in the areas of application Sport, Virtual Digital Fitting and Work Safety. The project has mainly focused on Work safety as this seems to be the most viable area commercially. In general, the project has reached all of its objective and has succeeded on several fronts.

Expected results and effects

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** The result is a general technical platform for integration into clothing that has been tested in the field with partners. The platform consists of electronics with washable enclosure, elastic wiring, method of garment construction and integration of electronics, and cloud-based pipeline for analysis of operating patterns., which aims to reduce the amount of work-related load and wear damage.

Planned approach and implementation

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** The project has been run in three parallel but closely linked tracks: 1. Development of hardware and basic software, 2. Development of garments, wiring and encapsulation, and 3. commercial verification. Not unexpectedly, the technical part (1) accounted for most of the work in the first half of the project. In the latter part, prototypes and garments have been developed (2). Through discussion and testing with potential partners in different areas (3), we have chosen to focus on Work Safety.
