The three-year project between Comfiknit and MIT aims to develop innovative strategies and design principles for optimising heat transfer in athletic garments for athletic performance and body temperature homeostasis.

Comfiknit develops fabrics intelligence for skin microclimate management that makes its fabrics work in sync with the human body for the optimal performance of protection, moisturising, healing and cooling.

The Comfiknit and MIT study aims to develop mathematical models to explore the design space of athletic garments that could help the industry develop standards of a genuine sweat-wicking and heatstroke-proof running tee.

The research will focus on enhancing athletic performance and mitigating the risk of sports injuries, especially heat exhaustion, during endurance sporting events.

MIT has also revealed it is working on a model that predicts how the properties of a shoe can affect a runner’s performance and said it could be useful for 3D footwear design.
