HKRITA once worked with the Hong Kong Sports Institute to develop rowing suits, cycling and running wear. In these projects, 3D body-scanning was done on every athlete so as to produce tailor-made sportswear. To take into consideration of every sport's characteristics and respective weather conditions during training and competition, the research team conducted a number of tests on fabric strength, fabric abrasion and UV protection. In individual cases, specific tests were conducted with advanced testers developed by HKRITA or the research institutes such as Fabric Touch Tester and Walter™ Sweating Manikin to evaluate special properties of the sportswear.
These projects have:
• identified physiological and biomedical requirements of human body and demand during specific exercises;
• estimated the sportswear function by simulating the thermoregulation of human body, heat and moisture transfer during training and competition and study the biomechanical interactions while wearing the sportswear;
• designed and produced the sportswear collections according to the requirements from thermal physiology, biomechanical physiology and protection;
• developed systematic evaluation method of the sportswear from fabric material, clothing and implication to the sports performance.
