FabricWorks, Smart Fabrics, wearable Technology and Therapeutic Fabrics that Promote Wellness

FabricWorks provides a platform to promote health or wellness through the use of Smart Fabrics containing wearable technology that integrates biosensors for monitoring heart and respiration rates, or through the use of Therapeutic Fabrics that utilize technical fibers and yarns that restore energy to the body. The small "Snip-It" ads/descriptions, contained in the FabricWorks feature, give you a chance to "Learn More" about the specific therapeutic or wearable technologies contained in each product being viewed, therefore making you a Smarter Shopper.

The "Snip-It" ads also give you the chance to visit online catalogs, or they provide you with a list of retail stores where you can see other products containing the specific technology featured in the ad.

Manufacturers are invited to use the "Snip-Its" to inform consumers of the innovative fabrics that are available to promote health and wellbeing.
