Hexoskin at Biosensors for Medical Wearables in Boston: Overcoming Challenges in Long-Term Medical Monitoring

Hexoskin's co-founder and CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier has been invited to talk about long-term vital signs monitoring at the Biosensors for Medical Wearables Conference in Boston on October 25th.

Vital signs sensors traditionally used for cardiac and respiratory monitoring involve adhesives or tape to keep the sensors in place on the skin. Experience has shown there's a tradeoff between monitoring duration (1 to 14 days), and adhesive agressiveness, which can lead to skin rashes or wounds.

There's now a safer and more convenient way for patients to record long-term vital signs data needed for diagnosis or to guide care or rehabilitation: smart textiles. Hexoskin users have successfully demonstrated the advantages of using a form factor that patients like. Researchers have documented it in over 200 scientific papers.

In his talk, Fournier will describe medical applications of smart textile sensors for patients with cardiac and respiratory diseases, as well as opportunities in research in mental health and rare diseases. He will also share unique insights into Hexoskin's experience in space medicine research aboard the International Space Station.

    Officers and First Responders Monitor Stress for Health Prevention

    Everyday, first responders put their own lives at risk to help individuals, families, and communities. They experience frontline tragical issues, such as accidents, deaths, murders, etc. In Canada, according to the Tema Conter Memorial Trust, ‘’PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is a very real phenomenon facing over 20% of all First Responders’’ (CASP, 2016).

    Health data are useful to get insights about the individual’s vitals. Hexoskin provides the physiological data, which gives an easy access to the vital signs information in order to determine the appropriate prevention solutions. Hexoskin can measure and report in real-time, high-level actionable data such as readiness information;  remote dashboard for command center; focus and cognitive assessment; stress and fatigue monitoring; mood status monitoring; energy expenditure and metabolism monitoring.

    Department of Homeland Security and Grant County Sheriff’s Office test new technologies for first responders

    The Department of Homeland Security and Grant County Sheriff’s Office recently tested new technologies for first responders in diverse emergency scenarios in the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington state. Some first responders participating in the program are using Hexoskin to monitor their vitals and their data are transmitted to the command center using smartphones. Read the article ''First Responders test new communications tech in partnership with Homeland Security'' for more information.
