Textile-based actuators can be realized in different ways and are of interest for a number of applications. On the one hand, pneumatic systems made of textile base materials can be used, on the other hand, there is a new approach to deforming textiles by electrical energy. They offer the following advantages:

  • Textile Haptic
  • Customer-specific parameterization
  • Flexible design

Possible areas of application are:

  • retractable elements and switches on textile surfaces
  • Pneumatically extendable elements
  • Muscle stimulation through pressure
