Xelflex, a smart fabric, provides intelligent feedback for athletes, by becoming an active motion sensor.
Inventor Martin Brock says the garment itself becomes an active motion sensor, with real synergy between fashion and functionality. “There’s no compromise between having a sensor that gives you feedback on your motion or your performance; and having some clothing that is comfortable and wearable and elegant as part of the everyday activities.”
While the current prototype consists of just a glove and sleeve, the developers say the Xelflex technology is at an advanced stage. They are looking to attract fashion and design companies who can integrate their research….and serve up a treat for budding sports stars.
