Christian Weigand explains the FitnessSHIRT.

The FitnessSHIRT accurately monitors parameters such as heart rate variability (HRV) and your pulse – without an additional strap. Our employee Heiko Wörrlein tested the shirt on a training run in the Tennenlohe Forest near Nürnberg, and talked with chief of development Christian Weigand to find out more about the shirt’s potential applications and the data it collects.

This kind of computed tomography imagery of old musical instruments is of interest to historians and conservators – and not least to musicians themselves.

"Fraunhofer IIS is definitely a Special Place"

Bernhard Grill in Fraunhofer IIS’s unique sound laboratory.

Bernhard Grill knows what he is talking about. He joined Fraunhofer IIS in 1988 and is now institute director and division director. The Fraunhofer X-factor for him lies in a trusting relationship between colleagues, the accomplished combination of research and marketing and lastly, but importantly, a healthy work-life balance.
