Initially used in functional clothing, the energear textile technology from Schoeller Technologies is now targeting the field of upholstery fabrics and mattress toppers.

Energear was most recently applied to mattress toppers by the German company Atlantis Wasserbetten, a large manufacturer of waterbeds. “We are excited about this innovative technology and anticipate many new customers with energear on our mattress toppers,” commented Ludger Beiergrößlein, CEO of Atlantis Wasserbetten.

Trend towards regeneration

Saum & Viebahn is an internationally operating textile publisher based in Kulmbach, Germany, offers, among others, the upholstery fabric collection modern Esprit that can be ordered with this additional energear-layer.

“The trend towards wellness and regeneration is particularly visible in the field of interior design. With energear it is possible that furniture is not only beautiful but provides an additional functional effect,” said Andreas Klenk, CEO of Saum & Viebahn.

Energy reflection

The technology is said to allow the body’s own energy, which is radiated in form of far infrared rays, to be reflected back to the body. This can have a positive influence on the body and its energy balance, the company reports.

Far infrared rays are part of the infrared ray spectrum and are radiated by the sun, certain stones and metals and the human body. Certain minerals can reflect this radiated energy. energear consists of a titanium-mineral matrix, with these properties of reflection. Textiles that are finished or printed with energear technology are said to reflect far infrared rays back to the wearer’s body.

Range of applications

Textiles with energear technology can have a positive effect on the human energy balance, such as the increase of general wellbeing and balance, improved patterns of sleep, fast revitalization and prevention of premature fatigue. In addition, energear can also have positive effect on concentration and performance.

Thanks to the fibre-independent applicability of the finish as well as its wash resistance, energear can be used in a wide range of applications, without affecting the breathability or look or feel of textiles. The product has been used successfully in sportswear, therapeutic bandages, duvets and horse blankets.
