Profile

Footfalls and Heartbeats has developed a revolutionary process for manufacturing smart fabric which uses nano-scale interactions within the textile to make the fabric itself able to measure specific parameters of interest, avoiding the need for wires or miniature electronics.

Integrating the technology into clothing but without the need for a separate “accessory” seems to be the next logical step for the increasing Wearable Technologies market and Smart Textiles market.

The company originated in New Zealand but has since transferred all operations to the UK and has
‘spun in’ to the University through collaborative activities related to synergistic optical sensor technology from the University.
