Safe, secure and healthy at work – notes from the 2011 WTshow at the A+A

The WTshow at the A+A 2011 featured a wide variety of concepts and innovative ways to use technologies integrated into clothing and portable technologies in the areas of safety and security and health in the workplace.

The following companies took the opportunity to present their Wearable Technologies at our booth:

The first WTshow at the A+A drew a lot of interest. The press and the protective work clothing manufacturers, in particular, were eager to gather information on the newest technological trends. Such themes as washability and certification were huge topics for those in the safety and security arena. The WTshow at the 2013 A+A will, therefore, even more intensely address these particular themes.
