Hexoskin is going to attend the SLEEP 2017 conference next week June 3-7 in Boston. Dr. Roger Godbout, professor at the University of Montreal and researcher at Hospital Rivières-des-Prairies, is going to present the results of a sleep monitoring clinical trial we've done with his research lab.
Hexoskin has been involved in clinical research and sleep analysis algorithm development since 2012. Researchers and professionals love how easy it is to access physiological data with Hexoskin.
We will be presenting at the session “O01: Circadian Rhythms, Activity, and Sleep Assessment” on Sunday, June 4th, 2017 from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM in collaboration with Dr. Roger Godbout. We are scheduled to present from 2:45 PM - 3:00 PM.
Hexoskin smart shirts measure the quantity and quality of your sleep and are used for long-term sleep evaluation at home. Hexoskin is not a medical device.
