Smart Solutions to Improve Wearing Comfort
Human performance often depends on the wearing comfort of the clothing system under challenging climatic conditions. This has led researchers to explore various approaches to improving wearing comfort and trying to understand thermophysiological processes.The field of thermophysiology is most important in Sporttech, Medtech, and Protech applications, where clothing system performance is especially critical. We, the RespothermTex team, have conducted research concerning microclimate conditions and using thermoresponsive polymers to automatize the transport of warmth and humidity through a clothing system. This technology opens the possibilities for smart multifunctional clothing systems.
