To ensure comprehensive protection in all work situations, today a trend in the textile industry is the development of smart personal protective clothing. Because only passive protection is often possible, the focus is on the development of active protection systems to increase the protection.

But not alone the protection function is required; also, other aspects like comfort, usability, care and maintenance are indispensable and must be involved in the development of smart personal protective clothing.
