Softswitch

Softswitch's patented technology offers textile sensors, signal transport systems and connectivity solutions. Fabrics are laminates of lightweight conducting materials enclosing a thin layer of pressure sensitive material that gives a large change of resistance with a small degree of compression. Inventor-scientist Steve Leftly pioneered this breakthrough in wearable electronics with his company Softswitch, patenting the first product in 2000.
