Knitted Skin

 

Dialogue between knitwear development and medical engineering

Knitted Skin is a functional knitwear piece, an artificial skin simulator for measuring children’s breathing difficulty. The technical knitted structures and seamless knitting technology imitate human skin's variable stretch and fit.

Knitted Skin is designed in collaboration with a multidisciplinary research group with expertise in design, engineering and medicine.
