Elitac Systems

Elitac, located in Utrecht, the Netherlands, develops wearables based on integration of stretchable electronics in textiles, for professional end-users. We enable wearable innovation in professional markets by offering solutions to integrate electronics in textiles. Core competences are the smooth, waterproof and stretchable integration of electronics in textiles and the use of vibrations to bring the sense of touch into human – system interactions. This physical interaction can be used to convey different types of information in an intuitive way as a replacement or in addition to audio and visual information.
