Hexoskin Presents Tools for Chronic Care at the AI in Healthcare Summit in San Francisco

Hexoskin is attending the AI in Healthcare Summit in San Francisco this week to present its connected health platform and healthcare AI architecture on Monday, June 26th.

The current hospital system has been built around the treatment of acute illness: emergencies, injuries, infections, etc. Chronic diseases are changing healthcare, and we are now entering a future in which care delivery is becoming decentralized, where communication between health professionals and patients is being facilitated by technology, leading to many potential advancements in prevention, treatment of chronic illness, and much more.

In his talk, Hexoskin's CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier discusses the specific tools enabling these advancements, what challenges exist in using health data for AI, and how healthcare professionals can leverage these new technologies to improve the quality of life for chronically ill patients.

Hexoskin presents a new clinical validation paper at the APSS Sleep 2017 Meeting in Boston

‘’Sleep Well, Live Better’’ –Hexoskin. Although sleeping represents a third of our lives, it's still mysterious for most people. Dr. Roger Godbout, professor and researcher at the Sleep Laboratory & Clinic at Hospital Rivières-des-Prairies (Montreal), will be presenting the new validation study ''Development and validation of an algorithm for the study of sleep using a smart shirt'' (Joelle P.M. et al., 2017) today at SLEEP 2017 at Hynes Convention Center in Boston. This clinical validation will allow Hexoskin clients to easily detect sleep stages with a good correlation with polysomnography (PSG), the clinical gold standard.

 

  

If you are in Boston, come and meet us to discuss our latest sleep research! It’s a great occasion to exchange on other topics related to sleep monitoring. Thanks to the Association Professional Sleep Society LLC (APSS) for this initiative!

Hexoskin, a non-invasive system, used to monitor sleep and save costs

As seen in the AARP document, The Longevity Economy – How People Over 50 are Driving Economic and Social Value in the U.S., ‘’early experiments also indicate that Hexoskin may facilitate remote monitoring/telehealth—in uses ranging from ambient assisted living (AAL) to sleep health (Banejee, T. et al., 2015) (…) This reduces both public and individual healthcare costs, and is minimally intrusive for patients.’’

 



Hexoskin is the only clinically validated system that continuously 
records ECG with respiratory lung functions and daily/sleep activities. It is used more and more to assess sleep quality at home and in clinical studies. In fact, all the data recorded with Hexoskin are important to consider when it comes to wellness and longevity.
