Smart vest / Smart clothing

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, short-handed medical workers often have to wear the medical protective clothing with extraordinary workload. As a result, they are suffering from intolerable conditions such as stuffiness, heat loss and dampness. These problems caused by traditional medical protective clothing will not only reduce the work efficiency but also harm their health in the long term. In order to improve their work environment, we designed this smart vest to adjust the temperature inside protective clothing based on Peltier Effect and to wick the annoying moisture away with drying unit, therefore to improve comfort under the pandemic.
