Posture and motion capture by smart textile

The objective of Postex is to design an intelligent textile jacket, without the use of additional sensors, to determine an operator's posture.

Since 2017, we offer an innovative solution based on the electrical properties of a conductive stretch fabric that is used in the manufacture of an intelligent garment. We use Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) to identify fabric deformations. A neural network is used to correlate the different postures and movements measured using a reference device with the electric field measured in the intelligent textile.

By 2018, we had successfully identified the movements of an elbow and then filed a patent under the number FR1860192. In 2019, we identified the shoulder and worked on the design of the fabric parts. In order to valorize the technology, the Touch Sensity startup was created at the end of 2019.
