Erik Holmström - Nanosuit


Erik Holmström - Nanosuit #1


Describe the idea:

Today’s wetsuits are based on neoprene which is produced from raw oil. In addition to this these wetsuits are often bulky and restrict the wearer’s movements. We offer a new kind of wetsuit where we replace the neoprene with a green nanomaterial improving flexibility as well as reducing the environmental impact.


Who are you? Previous education/jobs/ experiences etc.

I am a former supermarket clerk who likes to code, play squash and ski off-piste. Besides this business venture I am pursuing my fifth year of Engineering Nanoscience at LTH with a specialization in materials science. Prior to Nanosuit I’ve been a Team Leader of Premises at ARKAD, which is the biggest carrier fair in Sweden, where I learnt a lot of about leadership.


What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?

Our first goal is to come up with a prototype to be able to perform measurements and with these results determine the optimal structure. Lastly, we aim to create a website where we provide necessary information about the project.


What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs? 

Since both of us in the team received a scholarship we can fully dedicate ourselves this summer to materialize this idea. I have high expectations of what we can achieve during these months. Our main objective is to obtain quantitative information to compare our model with the current neoprene wetsuits.
