Innovations in advanced textiles
A new class of human-powered bioelectronics
A
team of bioengineers at the UCLA Samueli
School of Engineering has invented a
novel, soft and flexible self-powered
bioelectronic device. The technology converts human
body motions, from bending an elbow to subtle
movements, such as a pulse on one's wrist, into
electricity that could be used to power wearable and
implantable diagnostic sensors. The researchers
discovered that the magnetoelastic effect (the change
of how much a material is magnetized when tiny
magnets are constantly pushed together and pulled
apart by mechanical pressure) can exist in a soft
and flexible system.
Study leader Jun Chen, an assistant professor of bioengineering at UCLA
Samueli, says, " What makes this technology unique is that it allows people to
stretch and move with comfort when the device is pressed against human skin, and
because it relies on magnetism rather than electricity, humidity and our own sweat
do not compromise its effectiveness. " Photo: UCLA Samueli, Jun Chen.
PrimaLoft manufacturing platform reduces carbon emissions

rimaLoft Inc., developer of high-performance insulations and fabrics, has announced
enhancements to its PrimaLoft®
Using Reduced Emissions), a proprietary, renewable manufacturing technology, now achieves
up to 70 percent reduction in carbon emissions.
" We looked at the whole manufacturing process and focused on where all the dirty emissions
are coming from, " says Tara Maurer-Mackay, senior vice president of product strategy.
PrimaLoft completed a comprehensive environmental assessment of the insulation
manufacturing processes and identified the most effective opportunities to reduce carbon
emissions. From there, its engineers focused on increasing energy efficiency by making
changes around the fiber recipe, introducing new thermal equipment and optimizing the
source of energy to reduce carbon emissions.
