This course provides a short overview of smart materials.
Most medical disorders are treated in phases that involve inhibition, acute care, rehabilitation, and ongoing support. Smart textiles have a responsibility in each of these stages of disease medication and prevention. Fabric sensors can be easily inserted into clothing and linked using conductive threads through embroidery, knitting or weaving processes. In the case of illness, smart clothing can help the medical society by offering a more complete image of the health of their patients and enabling remote monitoring to minimize clinical calls. A smart garment in rehabilitation can help the patient in taking an active role in his or her healing and prevent future relapses. Smart textiles may have therapeutic functions in the future, providing a variable and adjustable way of treatment.
