 Comfortable, wearable low-level light therapy platform

A stretchable textile with flexible and stretchable electronics that can conform to the body curvatures of the animal. Reliable: efficiency is maintained under cyclic, tensile stretching deformation (can be repeatedly stretched without losing electrical performance) Comfortable: irradiance levels are within skin thermal comfort (heat-conducting layer incorporated), device is very flexible Breathable: the device is comparable with highly breathable textiles Production: can be made with standard PCB processes, as such cost-effective and high-volume production routes are available Prototype of a wearable device for light treatment The developed prototype allows for up to 15 min exposure with high energy visible wavelengths of 450nm, with average irradiance of 12.8 mW/cm2 (120 mW/cm2 peak irradiances) over an area of 158 cm2 in DC driving mode without exceeding skin thermal safety of 42°C. Implementations using infra-red LEDs, or a mixture of both are equally possible, depending on the desired treatment.
· Socio buscado Partnering We seek partnerships to explore wearable light therapy technology for indications of interest. We are open to partnering for further (pre)clinical research and/or identification of biostimulation protocols.
