University of Minnesota Associate Professor Dr. Lucy Dunne is combining science, engineering and apparel design to create a new fashion trend - Smart Clothes. The innovative technology integrates electronics and clothing for a functional use. The wearable technology has the ability to help everyone from physical therapy patients to firefighters thanks to body monitoring sensors built into knee braces and protective gloves. Dunne has received multiple grants from NSF to help develop a cut-and-sewn platform, textile-integrated smart clothing platform.
