Eleksen Group plc
Profile on Apparel Search) is the world leader in touch sensitive
interactive textiles for electronics interface design. The company's core
technology, ElekTex, is a unique electro-conductive fabric touch pad optimized
for the creation of flexible, durable and rugged fabric touch screen interfaces.
ElekTex is used in applications ranging from wearable electronic controls
for consumer electronics and industrial wear to lightweight, low-power touch
interfaces for CE accessories, telematics, military, transportation and
space suits. It replaces the hard touch pads, flexi-circuits and polymer
switches which have limited the growth of the wearable electronics markets.
Eleksen licenses ElekTex and reference design to manufacturers for use in
custom electronics design and also markets a range of ready-to-integrate
solutions for garment, bags and accessories manufacturers. Eleksen is headquartered
in Pinewood Studios near London, England, and in San Francisco, Calif.

announced in August 2012, it has signed a contract with the U.S. Army Natick
Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center (NSRDEC) to develop
solar cells that are directly integrated into the fabric cover of combat
helmets and rucksacks. NSRDEC is responsible for maximizing soldier survivability,
sustainability, mobility, combat effectiveness and quality of life, and
the goal of this effort is to provide the dismounted soldier with a discrete,
renewable power source. MC10 is currently developing a variety of products
including interventional circuits that can diagnose and influence tissue
function and ‘seamless sensing' devices to improve our health and wellbeing.
The company partners with industry leaders including Reebok, Massachusetts
General Hospital and a variety of U.S. government agencies to deliver innovative
new products based on its conformal electronics platform. MC10 reshapes
electronics to create thin, conformal systems that flex, stretch, and bend

of clothes that monitor the body provides a comfortable alternative to the
cumbersome heart monitoring chest straps that tend to chafe, slip and loosen
during workouts. NuMetrex garments -- including the Heart Sensing Sports
Bra, Cardio Shirt for Men, and Racer Tank -- offer seamless comfort combined
with superior monitoring performance. They sense heart rate through stretchy
fabric electrodes that are knit directly into the fabric, and send that
data to a compatible wrist watch or cardio machine via a tiny transmitter
that is snapped into a pocket in the garment. Launched by Textronics Inc.
in December 2005, the NuMetrex Heart Sensing Sports Bra was named 2006 Sports
Product of the Year by the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association.
