Abstract:

In the present work the authors made textile sensors by the screen printing method with the use of carbon nanotubes. The sensors obtained are intended for monitoring dangers in direct contact with the body. For this reason the modification of carbon nanotube dispersion, with the commercial name AquaCyl from the Nanocyl company, was performed in order to give
the textiles, apart from increased electric conductivity, bacteriostatic properties, which are extremely important in the case of  biomaterials. Assessment of the efficiency of the sensors both for mechanical stimuli and the action of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria
was performed.
