Nextiles is building a more connected future

Nextiles sews circuitry into fabrics providing elegant solutions to track data from anything and everything we interact with.
We stitch the gaps and capture datasets that the performance industry is missing.
If it can be sewn,
it can be smart
Nextiles blends traditional sewing techniques with innovative printed circuit boards. We make flexible substrates allowing us to place sensors within fabrics, such as your everyday sportswear. Stitching new sensor architectures and textiles together, Nextiles is able to capture a broad new range of biometric and biomechanics data.
Primarily focused on Elite Athletes, Nextiles manufactures sensing technologies to measure human performance.

Here at Nextiles we innovate advanced materials using basic sewing techniques. We are experts in conductive fibers. If it can be sewn, our technology can make that product smart and we can begin to collect valuable data.

Unlike conductive inks, our sensors work with basic threads such as cotton, polyester, spandex and nylon so our environmental impact is reduced. Nextiles fabrics are custom-tailored to fit any situation. We have reconfigured the sensor world to work with any fabric... this isn’t science fiction, our product possibilities really are endless.

Built from the ground up
We make fabric such as your everyday sportswear intelligent so that we can capture everything related to movement and force.
Nextiles is reinventing the sensor world, with years of materials science research and patents to back it up.

FAQ
How is Nextiles different than current sensors athletes use today?
Nextiles patent-protected form factor allows for complete biometric sensing, all through threads, captured on one modular platform. No straps, wraps, or clunky form factor required. Just your clothes.
What types of data does Nextiles measure?
Nextiles combines traditional sensor measurements found in IMUs (and all wearables to date) such as direction, speed, distance and adds that to our novel Newtonian measurements like force, bending, stretching, velocity and pressure.
How is the data transmitted and how do clients leverage that data?
Nextiles data is real-time and transmitted through Bluetooth. Our data is stored both in the cloud and locally. We work with partners on building custom API integrations and customize how we deliver the data for each partner and their desired use cases. We have started to leverage 5G technology for robust wireless connectivity.
How long does the battery last?
This depends on the use, but a fully charged battery lasts 48 hours similar to your Apple Watch.
How does Nextiles compare to other sensor companies' measurements?
Nextiles captures the same metrics that you find in other common wearable technologies. Due to our patent-protected form factor, we add novel measurements as it relates to forces, pressure and strain.
How long does the fabric last?
Nextiles fabrics last like any other tee shirt or pair of pants you own. Obviously, there can be rips and tears per user errors but our fabrics hold up for the longterm.
Is it safe?
Yes. Nextiles is using basic materials such as cotton or nylon which are found in your favorite pair of yoga pants or polos.
What about washing the clothes with sensors?
You can wash Nextiles garments just like your clothes at home. It is better to machine wash with cold water. Nextiles has professionally machine washed/dried for 20+ cycles and there has been no degradation in the sensors of fabrics found.
What is the frame rate at which data is captured?
100+ frames per second
Conductive threads have been around for a while. How are your materials any different?
Our threads are semi-conductive; meaning, our materials can sense mechanical changes from multiple data points in our threads, rather than just the beginning and end as conductive threads provide.
