If you were not able to attend live, and wish to watch it, you can now access the Webinar's recording:

Over 250 guests registered for this panel with our guest speakers Dr. Dennis Jensen (McGill University), and Denise Mannée (Radboud University Medical Center). In this session we discussed the benefits and considerations of digital technologies for Healthcare Providers, Researchers and Patients, and provide real-world evidence of Hexoskin's remote respiratory monitoring capabilities.

If you couldn't attend, and wish to watch it, you can now request access to the Webinar's recordingThank you for your interest and feel free to reach out if you have any questions.


Hexoskin Celebrates Pulmonary Rehabilitation Week

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.

Columbia University Research Measures Impact of Air Pollution on Cyclists in NYC

Commuting by bike is a great way to include physical activity in our day-to-day living. However the impact of air pollution on cyclists is not something that is well understood.

Columbia University researchers Steven Chillrud, Darby Jack, and their colleagues from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory have been using Hexoskin smart shirts and other sensors to collect data on pollution exposure in a real-world settings. This allows them to map pollution exposure around New York city. These maps can be used by cyclists and policy makers to better plan bike paths and bike lanes.

This project will have an important impact on urban design and mobility. Vice News covered their research project this week in this video:

 

Live Webinar - Join us on May 30, 2018 at 12PM (EST) for a Live Webinar on Respiratory Monitoring!

The Hexoskin Connected Health Platform is used by researchers in many domains all around the world. Remote & Continuous Respiratory Monitoring is a field of interest that is gaining momentum, but few non-invasive solutions exist to monitor the lung function of subjects and patients.

We invite you to our second webinar that will cover our latest results and applications in respiratory research. We will also present how Hexoskin can monitor COPD patients by using its very unique physiological data.

Webinar: Remote & Continuous Respiratory Monitoring with Hexoskin
30 May 2018, at 12:00 PM (EST) - via the Zoom Video Conferencing software

Speaker: Thu Ngan Trinh, PhD, Clinical Application Specialist at Hexoskin
