Advantages and Innovations

Smart heated products can be applied to different sectors. Furthermore, the products introduce new possibilities for sectors with special needs such as certain work places (construction, offshore, cold stores, paramedics, police, defence forces, etc.) or health care (e.g. therapeutic devices and applications). That way, outdoor activities in cold regions can be pursued independently from the weather. 

The technology is already applied to different products. Advantaged include:
- Intuitive system usability
- Seamless integration of hard- and software
- Data visualisation and feature control via mobile application on the smart phone
- Customization of the mobile application (front- and backend), electronics and battery modules as well as the respective garments
- Clothing features such as breathability, water resistance, wind proof etc.
- High safety standards of the electronic components with additional water proof, shock and fire resistant case
- Certifications such as CE EMC, RoHS, REACH, RED, LVD, IEC 62133 etc. are already in place for dedicated modules (further certifications can be applied upon request).
