Inuheat is an innovative Swedish company who focuses on developing wearable heating systems which can be easily integrated in clothing. Our business strategy is to associate with leading clothing brands who implement our technology in their clothes. With a consolidated team of 12 engineers, developers and sales experts, our aim is to become the global standard in wearable heating technologies.
Available wearable heating systems face multiple limitations, mainly the need for costly adaptations of manufacturing lines, a high price and low comfort, durability and efficiency. In 2016, Inuheat started the commercialisation of the Inuheat Wearable Heating Platform (IWHP), an innovative wearable heating system with advanced features allowing an easy implementation into standard clothing manufacturing equipment. The IWHP was introduced in 8 sock lines commercialised by Seger arousing great interest among final users and clothing brands.
MaxHeat is the next step in Inuheat’s product pipeline. It will help outdoors enthusiasts and workers to keep warm by offering an affordable, easy to implement wearable heating system providing comfort, durability (3 years) and efficiency (8 hours battery life) while enabling full product traceability and a disruptive 2-way communication channel with the final users of the garments through a cloud network.
MaxHeat has reached a TRL7 and is protected by 2 patents. Through MaxHeat project we aim to up-scale our production and fully develop MaxHeat cloud network. MaxHeat scale up will allow us to bring our production to Sweden, creating jobs and contributing to the development of the European industry. A strong commercialisation strategy will guarantee MaxHeat successfully reaches its target end users (clothing brands and final users of the heated garments), expanding our client base and sales. The market for smart textiles like MaxHeat is booming (33.6% CAGR) and is expected to reach €7.1 billion by 2022 creating a unique market opportunity.
