Smart Garment Fabrics to Enable Non-Contact Opto-Physiological Monitoring
Imaging photoplethysmography (iPPG) is an emerging technology used to assess microcirculation and cardiovascular signs by collecting backscattered light from illuminated tissue using optical imaging sensors. The aim of ...
Laser Shibori: A Digital Moulding Technique Supporting Circular Textile Design in Three Dimensions
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-12-20)
This paper considers the potential for digital laser technology to facilitate sustainable innovation in the field of textile design and manufacture, enabling transition towards a circular economy. Using recent design ...
Selective enzymatic modification of wool/polyester blended fabrics for surface patterning
An enzyme-based process was investigated to achieve surface patterning of fabrics as an alternative to conventional chemical processes. In the current study, the enzyme protease was employed to selectively modify a ...
Disulfide bond reconstruction: A novel approach for grafting of thiolated chitosan onto wool
Chitosan, a natural biopolymer, is used as a multifunctional agent for modification of wool either through chemical crosslinking or physical coating. For the first time, wool fabric has been modified with chitosan through ...
Laccase-catalysed coloration of wool and nylon
The potential for laccase (EC 18.104.22.168) to be used within the area of textile coloration, specifically for the generation of decorative surface pattern design, remains relatively unexplored. The current study presents a ...
