Garments made from new fiber record and play back breathing patterns of a wearer

A newly developed fiber known as OmniFiber can be used in clothing to make robotic clothes that sense the changes in its form and provide immediate tactile feedback.

A team of researchers at MIT, Uppsala University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden developed a technology that can be used in clothing that senses the measure when it’s being stretched or compressed and gives tactile feedback in the form of lateral stretch, pressure or vibration. According to team, these fabric made from newly developed fibers called OmniFibers could be used to create garments for athletes or singers to get control of their breathing, or

A new kind of fiber developed by researchers at MIT and in Sweden can be made into clothing that senses how much it is being stretched or compressed, and then provides immediate tactile feedback in the form of pressure, lateral stretch, or vibration. Such fabrics, the team suggests, could be used in garments that help train singers or athletes to better control their breathing, or that help patients recovering from disease or surgery to recover their breathing patterns.

“Robotic” textiles could help performers and athletes train their breathing, and potentially help patients recovering from postsurgery breathing changes.

A new kind of fiber developed by researchers at MIT and in Sweden, dubbed OmniFibers, contain a fluid channel in the center which can be activated and allow the fiber to act as an artificial muscle.
