How Smart Clothing Is Made—Stretchable

Stretchability is another requirement to make smart clothing wearable. According to imec, stretchability was accomplished by working with its associated lab at the University of Ghent, the Center for Microsystems Technology (CMST). Described as a technology "based on meandering structures between the electronic components," this allows electronics to stretch as much as 40% beyond their original length, imec said.
