Hitoe™ is a performance material for collecting biosignals, which are weak electrical signals that we emit unconsciously from our bodies. These signals are collected in a stable manner without our being conscious of them being measured.
*Hitoe™ is not a medical device.
Hitoe™ is a highly conductive fabric that is made from knit nanofiber impregnated with a conductive polymer—a polymeric compound that conduct electricity.
Clothing utilizing Hitoe™ is comfortable and capable of measuring bioinformation for a long period, even during exercise. Its use is anticipated in various fields, taking advantage of these properties.
