Meet Hexoskin at the 34th American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) Annual Meeting in Portland (OR) on September 18-21!

September 13, 2019

Hexoskin has been working for many years with rehabilitation professionals to provide more insights about patients recovering at home. The 34th American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) Annual Meeting in Portland (OR) on September 18-21 will be another great opportunity to connect with the experts who make rehabilitation easier for patients!

AACVRP is home for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation professionals, where they discuss and promote experiences, challenges, advances and research. We are looking forward to working with a diverse group of heart, respiratory and rehabilitation care specialists to explore new paths to deliver cutting-edge science that keeps patients in the comfort of their home.

The Hexoskin Team will be hosting meetings at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, OregonOur team will be presenting demos of its new clinically validated collection of Smart Garments for remote patient monitoring along with the Hexoskin Connected Health Platformalready used for rehabilitation and health research in cardiology, pulmonology, psychiatry, rare diseases and many other health conditions.

Keep patients at home. Make patients healthier. That's what professionals working in cardiac rehabilitation and pulmonary rehabilitation do. All year long. Hexoskin helps them get data about their patients and answer these questions: 

  • how active are my patients?
  • how do their heart/lungs respond to exercise?
  • how compliant are they to their exercise program?

This helps rehabilitation professionals personalize their approach and provide services to patients remotely. Almost every patient should be in a cardiac rehab program after a heart attack. Currently, in the US and Canada, less than 20% of eligible patients participate in a cardiac rehab program. For pulmonary rehab (COPD patients), it's less than 4%! This low participation rate is costing Medicare billions of dollars in additional hospitalization fees. Most importantly, millions of patients are not getting the care that would keep them out of the hospital. We need to make cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation more accessible. That's why we'll be in Portland this week.
