Our recently acquired Eleksen™ patent portfolio covers the core Eleksen technology – Elektex™ – a unique electroconductive fabrix touch pad optimised for the creation of flexible, durable and rugged touch screen interfaces which replace the need for hard touch pads and flexi-circuits.
ElekTex can be used in applications ranging from wearable electronic controls for consumer electronics accessories, telematics, military, transportation and space suits.
The Eleksen™ technology has been proven to be durable, having been tested in over one million operations. It has also undergone very stringent automobile standard testing (including puncture testing). Because of its construction it is not easily damaged during the assembly process, unlike many other electro-mechanical alternatives, eliminating the need for wires.
The ElekTex™ technology is well placed for incorporation into a variety of uses, and in addition to its control and interactive sensor functionality, can be used for hazard sensing, occupancy sensing, deflation sensing and moisture sensing.
Historically this technology has been proved by Eleksen with companies such as Microsoft, Philips, Nike, Intel, Kempo, Logitech, Orange, Johnson Controls, O’Neill and Spyder in products including:
Elektex smart fabric wireless keyboard
iPod suit (in partnership with Marks & Spencer)
iPod-enabled jackets (in partnership with City Sports, Craghoppers, Koyono and Kenpo, amongst others)
iRebel and Hoody and iMarage jacket (in partnership with Westcomb)
Bluetooth iJacket (in partnership with Zegna)
SportCommand (in partnership with Belkin)
Recliner chair featuring smart fabric hazard sensors (in partnership with Celebrity Motion Furniture)
Intuitive comfort seat (in partnership with Johnson Controls, used in the Kion concept car)

iMass™ Signalling System
In what we believe to be a world first, Visijax® has introduced the notion of active signalling for cyclists through our proprietary iMASS™ - integrated Motion Activated Signalling System.
Controlled by motion sensors on the arms of Visijax® Commuter and a central computer built into the control unit, iMASS™ allows you to automatically activate the LED turning signals by simply raising your arms as cyclists normally do. This system makes signalling intuitive and visible in darkness to oncoming and following traffic. Furthermore once the appropriate turning signal is activated, it stays on for 5 seconds-allowing cyclist to replace their hand onto the handlebar and concentrate on making a safe turning, before self-cancelling. By making turning signals more visible, iMASS™ addresses the real difficulty and hazard faced by millions of cyclists when turning within fast moving traffic. iMASS™ is designed to make your commute easier, safer and better.
