Nowadays, we heat whole rooms and car interiors to keep people warm.
Too much energy is wasted!
Our Innovative Solution
It would be much more energy-efficient
to heat the air close to people or directly the people themselves.
At qCella, we impregnate natural fibers with copper and use them to develop heating mats with superior properties compared to commercially available heating wires. The mats have the proper electrical resistance across the entire structure so that they heat homogeneously when connected to a power source (e.g., a battery). The thinness and smoothness of the heating mats allow for more energy-efficient heating by eliminating the need for a heat-losing upholstery layer between mat and human body. The heating mats can be cut into any shape and size and are easily and cost-effectively integrated into the final heated product.
