Abstract

Chapter 12, pages 289–310. Opening paragraphs: Monitoring pressure distribution using probes and sensors to ascertain the performance of a wide range of products in medical and clothing compression-wear is important for understanding the efficacy of products. The technology challenge is substantial, because surfaces are 3D contoured and deformable. Textiles can stretch and recover according to their construction and fibre type, and human bodies are covered in skin, below which are various permutations of fat and bone.
