Astroskin featured on Space.com

February 28, 2014

Elizabeth Howell of Space.com wrote a great paper on our advanced smart shirt "Astroskin" that is currently being tested by the Canadian Space Agency.

Astroskin monitors in real time and wirelessly astronaut's vital signs whether they be working, sleeping or space-walking.
Medical teams on Earth can interpret the data in real time or compare sets of data in time to evaluate how the crew is dealing with their tasks and environment.
 
XP Antarctik is an 8 person expedition currently travelling through unpaved areas of Antarctica using no means of mechanical transportation.
They wear Astroskin to record how their metabolisms react to unforeseen experiences and extreme conditions they live through.
The explorers regularly upload their data to the Canadian Space Agency who compares it with data from astronaut David Saint-Jacques, training in Canada.
