Functional design optimization of Hong Kong Fire Service Uniform

In the project "Advanced Clothing Functional Design CAD Technologies (II)"(ITP/030/08TP,Total funding HKD6.07 million), we have successfully developed garment thermal functional design CAD software technology, which has been filed as invention patents in China. Collaborating with Hong Kong Fire Service Department, we will apply systematical scientific approach to design and engineer uniforms for fire service teams to reduce their thermal stresses/strains and risk levels and increase comfort and safety during training and fire fighting by utilizing the advanced thermal functional design CAD technology. In the project, we will optimize the design and develop prototype garments to test in the laboratory and in the field, from which we will establish the technical specification. Meanwhile, through this project, we will develop practical application of the novel clothing functional CAD technology, promote the technology to local textile and clothing industry, support Hong Kong Fire Service Development and develop its commercialization network.
