Dr. Yang has studied smart textiles and wearable technology for 10 years, especially the textile sensors for ECG, respiration, gait analysis, strain, pressure, skin capacitive, etc. During the same time, Dr. Yang has also designed e-textiles which exhibit physical properties similar to those of traditional textiles such as being bendable, stretchable, and washable while still maintaining good electrical conductivity.
At present, Dr. Yang has acquired several patents. During the last seven years, he participated twice in the MEDICA exhibition in Germany, where the results were encouraging.
Dr Yang has submitted papers to IEEE EMBC, BSN, BHI, International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE), ITAB,and ICE-GIC.
