Smart wellness clothing – from myth to reality?

Smart clothing — hi-tech clothing, electronics, smart textiles — is enhanced by technology that gives clothing, footwear, or accessories more functionality than usual. This category of clothing is also known as e-clothing. Most of these garments are made of advanced textiles embedded with sensors or microchips that collect biometric data on the condition of the wearer's body and how it changes. The data is sent via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to artificial intelligence applications on the smart device. Major fashion companies such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Under Armour, Levi's, and others are already developing such innovative clothing. Let's take a look at the health-enhancing roles of modern smart clothing and accessories.

Tattoo – a scar on your skin and body

A tattoo is a temporary or permanent drawing on the body, depending on the methods and means used. In the past, tattoos were used to mark social status, kinship, and maturity in various nations. Now they are an aesthetic means of self-expression, an adornment of the body with a symbolic meaning. But if this decorative solution eventually becomes boring, what if the values it represented change? Unfortunately, this is just one of the drawbacks of tattoos.

Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful.

An (un)healthy clothing recipe

The skin is the largest human organ, with thousands of pores and hair follicles on its surface, through which the body breathes, absorbs moisture, releases sweat, and protects itself from dust and bacteria. So, as we increasingly wonder today about the ingredients of our daily food, we should consider the fabrics that we put on our bodies as well.
