Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, has played a key role in conducting cutting-edge materials and technology research as well as clothing physiology analysis of the Hydro_Bot system incorporated in jackets, which confirmed the efficacy of the technology. In all tests the jackets performed better than existing state-of-the-art jackets, and when the electronics were switched on the difference was remarkable, the institution reports.

“Empa has been delighted to orchestrate the technological development and to validate the innovation that makes Hydro_Bot a revolutionary moisture management solution. While this is a first-generation product, our physiological analysis already shows that electro-osmosis will make it possible to manage moisture in an entirely new way,” commented Prof Dr Gian-Luca Bona, CEO of Empa.
