Delft University of Technology and BioCheck join forces to collaboratively develop new products in the field of ‘Smart Textiles’ – innovative ‘smart’ products that integrate technology and textiles. This innovative initiative is led by Prof. Dr. Ir. Kaspar Jansen of the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering and is supported by Rebekka Groeneveld, Industrial Design Engineer.
Desirée van der Gracht, Innovation Lead at BioCheck, says, “We look forward to this collaboration, especially as we initiate a trajectory where co-development and co-creation with end-users take center stage. It is exceptionally inspiring to work with TU Delft to develop innovative products in the field of health and vitality.”
Rebekka adds, “Smart textiles combine well-known textile production techniques with the latest yarns and technological material knowledge. This allows us to create products that help people become and stay healthy and vital. For me, this is a perfect combination of my interests: textiles and the medical world. This collaboration bridges these two worlds, making it an exciting and enjoyable challenge!”
The collaboration extends beyond TU Delft; Erasmus MC is also an active partner in the upcoming development trajectory, bringing together various expertise to promote innovation at the intersection of smart textiles, technology, and health. This joint effort promises technological advancement and concrete solutions that enhance the health and well-being of individuals.
Kaspar remarks, “It’s fun and inspiring to see how a technology we conceived here will actually be used to improve people’s health.”
