Title: YARNS WITH CONDUCTIVE ELASTOMERIC CORES, FABRICS AND GARMENTS FORMED OF THE SAME, AND METHODS FOR PRODUCING THE SAME
Abstract:
A stretchable conductive yarn (1) includes a conductive core (2) of one or more elastic fibers (4-6) and an insulating sheath (3) that covers the conductive core. One or more of the elastic core fibers may be an elastomeric material (4) and may be combined with a less elastic fiber (5, 6) to control the returning properties of the conductive elastic fibers. Also provided are fabrics, garments and various devices formed using the conductive elastic yarns and which can be used to perform various electrical sensing operations to monitor and measure various bodily functions and conditions, or performance of a wearer.
