Insulectro, the largest distributor of PCB and printed electronics materials, will showcase Komodo Technologies remarkable AIO Compression Sleeve before it enters the marketplace at IDTechEx’s Printed Electronics World 2016 conference, November 16-17, in Santa Clara, CA at the Convention Center in Booth i22.
Insulectro Printed Electronics offers advanced materials from such leading suppliers such as DuPont, Chromaline, Coveme, and Kodak in the areas of conductive inks, substrates, and consumables.
The AIO (”all-in-one”) smart sleeve is a first in vital systems monitoring by use of a sports compression sleeve and a smart phone. The sleeve is manufactured by Komodo Technologies in Winnipeg Canada. It’s capabilities include 24/7 Monitoring of:
- ECG/EKG - monitor electrical activity of heart status
- Heart rate (beats/minute) utilizing optical sensors
- Blood oximetry - person’s oxygen saturation SO2
- Body temperature
- Air quality
- UV sensor
- Barometric pressure
- Sleep analysis
- Intensity of Activity
Insulectro Printed Electronics Product Specialist Dr. David D’Ambra commented, “You’ll also be one of first to see, first-hand, Komodo Technologies brand-new AIO Smart Sleeve that’s about to hit the market. This is the World’s first activity monitoring compression sleeve with 24/7 monitoring of ECG and EKG functions – a miracle of printed electronics ingenuity.
“Inherent in the manufacture of the sleeve are several advanced DuPont inks designed for wearables,” D’Ambra added.
“DuPont PE873 stretchable Ag is printed on a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film supplied by Bemis Associates. The printed film allows Komodo to integrate a conductor trace into their sleeve and make the garment machine washable.
“The stretchable Ag is used to connect 2 ECG/EKG electrodes - one is a copper electrode which is integrated into a device located over the wrist & another one, which is located under the armpit, utilizes a standard EKG electrode with hydrogel,” D’Ambra concluded.
Insulectro distributes key DuPont polymer thick film paste products to U.S. customers in the wearables, capacitive switch, touch screen, RFID smart card, heating and membrane touch switch markets. In addition, Insulectro Printed Electronics distributes carbon conductors and UV dielectrics on behalf of DuPont.
