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 160 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.

Today, we start celebrating Pulmonary Rehabilitation Week. At Hexoskin, we think that Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) is vital and we are happy to celebrate all the efforts of the professionals and also the people who are following a PR. Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs have demonstrated health benefits and can positively improve the quality of life of people living with lung diseases.
If you have moderate to very severe Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), you're probably eligible for pulmonary rehab. Ask your physician if there's a program near you.
For healthcare professionals, did you know that PR referrals & access are still very limited? According to a recent study, only 3% of Medicare beneficiaries with COPD are currently enrolled (Garvey et al. 2019). You can do your part by educating your peers, colleagues, and administrators about the benefits of PR.
