We are introducing SWEAR – Smart Wear – a functional garment with the ability to cool the user down. The project, which we developed with partners over the last three years as part of the EUREKA 2016 initiative, was realized in the final product: the T-shirt with a cooling function that will make daily tasks easier for both recreational and professional athletes, as well as firefighters and other who work in hot environments.
Research and development towards personal systems based on smart textiles, which enable the monitoring of health, protection, safety, and a healthy lifestyle in general, have gained great interest in the last ten years. The purpose of the SWEAR project was to develop a protection system with a human thermoregulation function during work in a hot environment, based on a combination of thermoregulation functions and monitoring of the user’s life functions.
Combining different textile materials allows us to develop clothes with added features. For this purpose, we studied individual materials and combinations of materials in terms of thermal properties. The final product is a sensor-equipped T-shirt made of smart materials, which carries the function of measuring the temperature in the microenvironment of the protective clothing system. The T-shirt is connected to the SWEAR application, which records temperature data and warns the user in case of deviations from the pre-set values.
In the initiative, the company Prevent & Deloza cooperated with the public agency Spirit Slovenia and the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology. The project was co-financed by the EU from the European Regional Development Fund (link).
We offer the SWEAR T-shirt in various color combinations. Price without VAT starts at 182 € per piece.
