SINTEC is a Horizon 2020 funded project started the 1st January 2019 with a contribution from the European Commission of 3,999,262.50 euro. The aim of the project is to provide soft, sticky and stretchable sensor patches that can be used multiple times and at longer periods. With its dynamic compliance and water repellent permeable encapsulation it withstands vigorous action, sweating and water; making it ideal for an active life. A ground breaking intra body communication technique gives large bandwidth and secure consumption at low power, allowing for multiplex sensoric inputs from many nodes on the body. The main advantages should be in comfort. Hence, its major impact will not in replacing other wearables but rather providing novel capability, considered to give immense impact on society with new intelligence support.

To demonstrate the advantages of the novel technology, SINTEC will apply it in clinical environment and in athletics performance evaluation.

SINTEC project consortium is composed by 8 partners coming from 4 different EU countries.
