SMARTEX s.r.l is a small limited liability company founded in 1999 with the aim of developing e-textile or new electronics structures compatible with textile processes and manufactures. Core activity is the implementation of bio sensing apparels (Tshirts, bands, vests, etc.) able to monitor vital signals, as electrocardiograms, heart rate, respiration signal and rate, index of activity as well as bio-potentials like EMG. Moreover systems based on piezoresistive textile sensors allow to acquire biomechanical signals for the recognition of gesture and posture. Smartex has also gained experience in the design and the implementation of textile solutions for biochemical sensing and body liquid handling. Smartex owns the intellectual property and the technical knowledge to implement the textile sensing, the acquisition and the extrapolation of parameters in different applications spanning from sport to clinical rehabilitation. The team is composed of electronic engineers, one textile designer, bioengineers and physicists.
