Product description

From the Back Cover

Smart clothing and wearable technology is a relatively novel and emerging area of research within the fashion and textile industry. This book provides a comprehensive review of the wearer's requirements, the technologies and materials available for the design and production of smart clothing.

Part one assesses the design and materials for smart clothing and wearable technology. Topics include the design process from fibre selection through to product launch, the use of nonwovens in smart clothes and developments in digital print technology. Part two then examines the general requirements for smart textiles, such as the health requirements for wearable technologies. Part three reviews the types of technologies available for the development of smart clothing and part IV concludes with a discussion of the manufacture of smart garments. Themes such as developments in fabric joining and graphic communications are reviewed.

Smart clothes and wearable technology is a unique and essential reference source for researchers, designers and engineers developing textiles and clothing products in this rapidly evolving area. It be beneficial for those in the healthcare industry and academics researching textiles, fashion and design.
