(Filed Under wholesale Men's Underwear News). Joseph Wang, a nano-engineering professor at the University of California San Diego, has broken new ground in the intimate apparel field with underwear designed to save lives.
Wang and his team have developed two styles of men’s underwear embedded with chemical sensors at the waistband, which monitor blood pressure and heart rate. To create the sensors, the team screen-printed carbon electrode arrays directly onto the elastic waist bands of men’s briefs, which measure functions due to direct contact with the skin. Through tests, the researchers found that folding, stretching and other stresses associated with everyday wear would not affect the sensors performance.
The U.S. military funded the project with the goal to monitor soldiers injuries during battlefield surgery. However, Wang described the new technology as useful in other industries, including healthcare and sports.
