Applications

The technology in the STRETCH.flex stretchable circuit board can be used in a wide variety of areas. From medical technology and sensor technology to smart textiles and robotics.

Let us share two examples with you:

Medical technology

Sentec uses a stretchable substrate that is inserted directly into a chest strap to directly monitor the lung and heart function of new-borns and premature babies (neonatology).

Smart textiles: Wearable technology

This cycling jacket by designer Wolfgang Langeder, developed together with Fraunhofer IZM, contains several stretchable circuit carriers that significantly enhance the interactive safety lighting thanks to the integrated and active sensor-controlled LEDs.
