OFFER DESCRIPTION

PhD project abstract

Smart textiles have been a research topic and a possible technology for decades. The functionality of smart textiles can vary, one of the many possibilities being a chemically and mechanically active network of transducers, an exoskeleton, or a compatible biomedical device. Exoskeletons can be supporting structures to provide better capabilities while also being a network of electrochemical sensors Conductive polymers have been used directly as electrodes in many applications. However, in biomedical applications, the penetration of oxygen through the comfort of the material is very important, which is technically called breathability. To solve these problems, conductive polymers are used as the fiber form and driven. Depending on the knitting pattern, the flexibility of the material can be further improved, which contributes to better breathability. Because materials are sensitive to synthetic conditions, it is difficult to obtain reproducible results. The production of impurities (3D printing) incorporating the technology of the Fourth Industrial Revolution enables the synthesis in a highly complex structure with high resolution, rapid and economical prototyping and reduction of the human factor.
