Five textile industry leaders are launching HYDRO_BOT, a new technology for moisture management. It is expected to solve a major challenge in sports, work and protective clothing: to transport moisture to match human sweat rates in various climates, conditions and activity levels. Behind HYDRO_BOT is Osmotex, a Swiss-Norwegian start-up dedicated to developing solutions for electro osmosis for moisture management. HYDRO_BOT is the result of ten years of research and development in Switzerland. Osmotex partners include Swiss textile manufacturer Schoeller Textil AG, sportswear brand KJUS, high-tech wearable technology company Belginova, and Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology.
