Sensewear is a collection of clothes and accessories that emphasise the use of senses. The collection is inspired by therapies applied to Sensory Processing Disorders.
The aim of the project is to design an inclusive collection wearable by anyone which does not stigmatise a person affected by a disorder. An underwear T-shirt gathers data through textile sensors and actuators through an application that activates other garments. Pumpme: inflatable jacket that creating a deep pressure on the wearer’s body gives a calming sensation and buffer against unwanted external sensations producing a contact-free personal space. Biteme: biteable necklace that release the stress and includes a GPS receiver. Playme: musical necklace composed by a body in which can produce sounds though pressure and movement sensors. Pullme: aromatic scarf that diffuse the aroma through an atomizer. Squeezeme: wearable scarf for emotional emergencies. Hearme: hoodie poncho that makes sounds helping to focalize the wearer’s auditory capabilities.
“Great concept that looks into how to help users and make them more comfortable”
“Clothing could expand to various styles i.e. school uniform for children who suffer from various health conditions”
“Currently being tested abroad but could get backing here in the UK if looking to pursue this market”
