Hexoskin's Applications & Validations in Cardiology Research

July 24, 2017

17.7 million people died from cardiovascular diseases in 2015, representing 31% of all global deaths (World Health Organisation). In most cases, cardiovascular diseases can be prevented.

People with cardiovascular disease with a high cardiovascular risk (due to the presence of one or more risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia or already established disease) need early detection and management using counseling and medicines, as appropriate.

Hexoskin is an efficient and accurate solution to collect quantitative data about patients, every day, in real-life situations, over a long period. Researchers in many countries are performing cardiology studies with Hexoskin.

Here are a few publications about research projects that used Hexoskin to monitor cardiac and pulmonary activities from participants:
