The integrated technology is based on stretchable circuit board technology. It is made out of thermoplastic polyurethane, onto which meander-shaped copper conductors, micro-controllers and further components (LEDs, sensors, a switch) are applied. This technology is adapted for serial production. Sporty Supaheroe´s wearable electronic system is based on this technology. The system consists of 4 interconnected patches, each of them equipped with 16 LEDs (white in the front and red in the back), a motion sensor and a micro-controller. A thin haptic switch on the left
front patch allows turning the system on/ off. A rechargeable battery connected with the system supplies necessary power up to 10 hours. To increase the security and usability of the system it is embedded into a flame-resistive non-woven and a water repellent outer textile layer. This system can be integrated into clothing and accessories, enabling various innovative applications.
