Smart solutions for the person
ProtectionVarstiff® as a textile can be draped around the body, and when switched to rigid provides a protective shell fitting the body. This allows to use a uniform design to fit the individual person.
ComfortVarstiff® allows a rigid structure to be shaped exactly to the form of the body, which largely increases the comfort of wearing or being in contact with rigid parts.
ImmobilizationFlexible Varstiff® can be put on the body as needed and when switched to rigid provides the support to immobilize limbs or other body parts. For example, to transport injured people.
Smart solutions for objects
MoldabilityVarstiff® allows to change the shape of a rigid object according to actual needs. For objects that need to be rigid, but with a shape designed on the spot, or with shapes that have to differ over time.
FoldabilityVarstiff® allows to create rigid objects, that still can be folded by switching to flexible state, for example for storage.
AdaptabilityVarstiff® allows to change stiffness properties according to actual needs. For objects that need to be flexible in some circumstances and more rigid in others.
