Functional Textiles

Polteco has taken the approach of combining textile components with innovative processing techniques to create unique textile constructions with novel properties.

Project Examples:

Functional fabrics and wear for health, fitness and training

Our team was tasked with developing a platform of novel fabrics and wear that apply distributed weight resistance over the user’s body for health, fitness and training with natural body motion.  We developed an innovative, thin, stretchable and breathable fabric with weight elements incorporated integrally within, that could be tailored into apparel-like exercise wear and adapted for various fitness activities and specific user criteria for health and athletic performance.  The novel fabrics and wear combine function, design and comfort.
