FLEX&SAFE Pilot Case Introduction

Read insights for the Flex&Safe Pilot Case led by the Greek company SEEMS. Selected through the FlexFunction2Sustain Open Call, this case focuses on flexible printed electronics for wearables applications in working personnel health and safety monitoring.

Over the last 3 years, SEEMS has designed and developed (100% in house) its corporate Personnel Health & Safety Monitoring Device (FLEX&SAFE), as a part of its corporate aRTi-D Digital Transformation Solution, implemented with the traditional electronics approach (Rigid or Flexible PCB and SMDs). Testing through various trials (within lab and/or working environment), SEEMS found certain limitations on the Device structure itself, concerning tolerance & reliability, as well as additional requirements for more functionality to fully cover the industrial requirements. The objective of FLEX&SAFE pilot project is to upgrade the existing sensors with a new structural unit based on Flexible Organic Printed Electronics sensors (Roll-to-Roll compatible printing and materials), that will provide a robust construction, highly tolerant, to satisfy user’s comfortability & trust compliant with the required industrial standards and working requirements. This will ensure longer durability of the wearable device, better adaptability as a wearable. To achieve our objective the FLEX&SAFE sensor will be manufactured employing Printed Electronics standards & procedures, to become a highly competitive tool in Health & Safety of the working people.

In order to execute the Pilot Case, SEEMS is using the combined services of FlexFunction2Sustain consortium partnerAristotle University of Thessaloniki, Organic Electronic Technologies Private Company, Bl Nanobiomed, IPC – Centre Technique Industriel de la Plasturgie et des Composites, Sonnenberg Harrison Partnerschaft, which will participate with:

  • Materials characterisation techniques
  • Printed organic electronics sensors technology and R2R printing technologies
  • Life Cycle Analysis
  • Patent Search & market analysis
