Our products

Product category: Wearable technologies, smart textiles

BioMan+

Bioman+ is a base upper body garment solution for a wide range of smart clothing solutions.

It consists of conductive fiber based textile electrodes for the acquisition of the electric activity of human body as well as conductive thread to carry the electric signals to the processing & transmission module that is snapped onto the garment.

Bioman+ has been validated with most of the industry leading heart rate & ECG module vendors and continues to be the first choice Smart Clothing partner for new module vendors entering this rapidly growing segment.

AiQ Motion

In the ultimate quantified self paradigm, smart clothing, functioning as a second skin is capable of not only detecting the physiological data, environmental data such as ambient temperature, location data and data around human motion.

The capability to digitize human motion is significant in a wide range of application scenarios – Sports Coaching, Physiotherapy & Recovery Management, Fall management among Elders, Gesture Control of other wireless enabled devices such as Laptops and Gaming systems.

A full body motion suit can also add highly compelling immersive VR experiences as compared to what the current joystick+HMD based solutions can offer.

About AiQ
 
Delivering insights into human body
Creating interactions with external world
– through the clothes you wear

Making Clothes Smarter – a nanometer at a time
 
AiQ is regarded as a pioneer in the smart clothing industry. Starting as the Innovation Group within KingsMetal Fiber, a leader in stainless steel fiber based woven fabric for specialty glass applications such as automotive glass.

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 & activity 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.

When fully evolved, we can expect to see a complete paradigm shift in the healthcare industry aided by advances in big data, machine learning leveraging the physiological data that is continuously acquired by the sensors.

Until we get to a stage where a sensor can be printed on a human body or even embedded into it, leveraging textile form factors to serve as the 2nd skin layer to house the sensors to collect
physiological information.

E-Textiles – the fabric for sensors
 
The clothes we wear, haven’t really changed in their core functionality in thousands of years.

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.
