Elderly Smart Healthcare


What is the value of textiles design in a technology acceptance context? The project illustrates how sensory devices and smart objects are welcomed into a home through aesthetic  textiles design. Hard plastic sensors are replaced  with soft smart textiles sensors in the shape of a ball. The outer layer of the ball is made out of high quality textiles yarn through Jaquard weaving technique.  The sensory soft ball is placed on the sofato result in a perfect blend.

This project is funded and executed  at the Polytecnical University of Madrid and tested in the Digital Living Lab.
