Health & Wellbeing
Keeping body and mind healthy and sound has always been important for leading a more fulfilled life. With countless apps and devices to help in these efforts, staying fit and well has become both easier and a more sophisticated task. Sportwear and equipment made from innovative polymers have made athletic pursuits more accessible and enjoyable. Smart wearable devices, advanced materials technology and personalized care enable longer and more active lives, at a time when leisure and work have become increasingly complementary activities.
BODY TUNING AND ACTIVE AGING
Fitter for longer
The body is no longer just kept healthy with wholesome food and regular workouts, but also optimized with smart clothing, body-regulating wearables, and even implants. You can stay at your peak for longer by tracking and tuning your fitness with connected wristbands, smart mirrors and cognitive training devices. With advances in medicine and greater appreciation of self-care, it is no wonder that people are living longer, more active lives. And, wider awareness of and access to clean and safe food and water contact materials has also contributed greatly to improvements in health and wellbeing.
PERSONALIZATION AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Customization is already a powerful trend in retail – and it is also set to replace off-the-shelf solutions in medicine and wellness. With ever more accurate tracking technologies, affordable DNA kits and lighter, customizable materials for medical devices, staying in good health is getting more personal. At the same time, people are enjoying more than ever the benefits of the great outdoors to body and mind, leading to a boon in demand for high-tech outdoor sporting gear. Much of these exciting lifestyle advances are enabled by engineering polyamides.
