What are Wearables?
Reid Print Technologies are the Australian specialists among the flexible print sectors. More specifically wearable technology, also known as wearables. Wearables are an electronically printed circuitry that is embedded into fabric or textile materials. The printed circuitry transforms any material into a smart fabric, enabling many performance capabilities.
It can go as far as incorporating GPS tracking into your activewear to track how far and where you go on your daily jogs. The possibilities are endless. By utilising low temperature curing inks formulated for use on flexible substrates, Reid Print Technologies use of deep technical understandings enables advanced printed electronics applications for an expanding range of new, innovative products.
Wearables are utilised in a variety of industry including:
- Medical and Healthcare
- Military and defence
- Sports science
