Wearable technology is big news.
In the United Kingdom alone, the market for smart technology products is expected to rise to around 13.1 million users this year, while an estimated 40 million Americans are already wearing health and fitness devices.
At Nexus Foams, we are aligned to the growth in this sector. We have been meeting consumer demand for smart materials and products designed for comfort for years. It is something we excel in and are perfectly placed to create and manufacture products to meet this new and exciting demand.
Great looking products are one thing, but wearable tech that is also functional and comfortable is quite another.
In the past, health and fitness devices often did the job, but were far from comfortable. For example, they may have been heavy and ill-fitting, applied pressure to skin and made it sore or caused the wearer to sweat because the product was not breathable.
At Nexus Foams, our deep understanding of materials and how they work together enables us to create wearable technology and materials that are not only good looking and perform brilliantly – but are also great to wear.
In the healthcare sector especially, patient comfort is extremely important. Our experience shows that perception of comfort can be as powerful as actual physical comfort. We never forget the psychological and social aspects of a wearable device and are always working to produce discreet, functional and top-performing products.
We manufacture in a medical device-compliant facility with thorough testing and built-in processes for incorporating customer feedback.
Our multi-material knowledge and expertise in designing custom-built components helps to create products that excel on all levels.
