The progress of science and technology in today’s world is incredibly fast that every day we come across new technologies and innovations, and science and technology have almost covered all aspects of our lives.
In fact, the goal of new innovations is to help us live more comfortably and with a higher standard, so that they can improve various aspects of our lives, one of the most important of which can be considered to be helping health and increasing the ability and performance of the human body.
The influence of science in all industries and sectors is very tangible in the last decade, and the textile and clothing industry is one of the best examples. The textile and Apparel industry is one of the industries that every human being is directly and constantly involved with and occupies an important part of our living expenses, time and energy.
Using superior technologies in the textile industry to improve health and quality of life is one of our most important achievements in recent years. Where we can take amazing steps in the textile and clothing industry thanks to technology.
The smart medical textile market is a large and rapidly growing market and is often produced in developed countries with advanced technologies.
European countries and the USA, which have moved the common textile and apparel industries to the East and Asia ( countries like India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Myanmar … ) for many years due to various reasons such as environmental pollution, low added value and high cost of energy and labour, have succeeded in the medical smart textile sector and achieve remarkable success with very high added value.
In this article, we try to introduce the most important companies active in the field of producing smart textile products that are mostly used in the medical and health sector.

Body Sensor Networks – the next frontier for semiconductors
The phenomenal growth in IoT ecosystem has brought out several hundreds of types of tiny low-power sensors that can sense a variety of status & activities fuelling the M2M and IOT industries. However, when it comes to sensing the human condition & activity in a non-invasive manner, there is still a long way to go in the development of appropriate technologies and regulatory frameworks.
AiQ is pioneering the effort to alter the status quo by fusing semiconductors with textiles to create a new generation of apparel and other textile form factors that are intelligent, connected to a network spanning PAN, LAN & WAN and either solve specific problems or enrich certain slices of life.
While some analysts and media tend to slot Smart Clothing as a part of Wearables industry, AiQ views Smart Clothing and e-Textiles as additional nodes in the IoT network. Not all Smart Clothing & e-textiles are wearables – examples will be smart mattresses that can be used for sleep monitoring or intelligent automobile upholstery.
