Need Conductive Embroidery Yarns? We have the ones you Want! Conductive Yarns and Threads have replaced metal wires in Smart Clothes! It only makes sense, clothes are made of textiles, not wires. Metal wires will ultimately develop stress fractures from repeated flexing. These stress fractures will result in circuit failure. Conductive yarns are plated with metal, making them conductive! These conductive threads are able to flex with the clothing. This makes them more comfortable to the wearer than wires. The conductive threads don’t break, ensuring better circuit durability. Embroidering circuits with conductive yarns makes great sense!
Need Conductive Embroidery Yarns? We have the ones you want! Our conductive yarns are plated with silver, the most conductive metal! The most conductive circuits should use the most conductive metal! Embroidered Circuits are not the only use for our embroidery yarns! These Embroidery Yarns can also be used to embroider sensors and electrodes. The sensors are used for monitoring vital signs. The electrodes can be used for stimulating nerves and muscles. The sensors and electrodes can be placed precisely into garments, insuring proper bodily placement of the sensors and electrodes. Long-term remote telemetric monitoring can then be done without skin irritation caused by conventional sensor adhesives. This technology can be used in Healthcare, Military, and Physical Therapy.
