Weave, knit, and weight) alone. e. as a sensor/detector and as a shield. In this context, the smart textile may be regarded as a technical, medical textile as it is triggered by a stimulus that directly influences our health (Bamfield, 2001). The mistake of classifying this type of smart textile as actively smart should not be made, because the shielding function is a by-product or an effect of the sensory function of the smart textile. There are five classes of photochromic compounds, and most of these can be used to build smart medical textiles: 1.
