Techtextil/Texprocess 2015: Hohenstein Institutes
The theme for the Hohenstein Institutes booth in Frankfurt/Main will be “Progress through research”.
One of the main features will be the artificial uterus “Artus”. Another research highlight will be the results of a large-scale survey of 3D head shapes. The “Spacetex 2030” design competition and the new Oeko-Tex certifications “STep” and “Made in Green” will also be featured.
Artus: With the Artificial Uterus “Artus” as part of a research project, the experts have developed the worlds first system for helping premature babies develop by providing sensory stimulation.
3D head shape survey: Researchers at the Hohenstein Institute spent about two years measuring the heads of 6,000 men, women and children. They succeeded in developing a new sizing chart specifically for heads, and for the first time defined characteristic 3D head shapes.
