STP1 WarmTex

Company: FOV Fabrics AB
Project Manager: Fredrik Johansson
Project Time: 2009-06-09 – 2009-12-31

Description:
The WarmTex project intend to investigate the possibilities to use FOV’s innovation within conductive and warming textiles for using within the healthcare industry, especially at surgical operations (Temperature Management). The marketing potential is great for heating products because of the high cost of these products available on the market today, which means that all patients don’t get heating during operations.

Within the WarmTex project, a number of potential signs will be evaluated as integrated in consisting operational equipment, as well as a separate product. A product like that will generate a great added value for the end-user which goes well with FOV’s business idea with combining different material and technologies to maximize the benefit for the customer.
